As a real estate agent, I often hear from people who want a new home because they’ve outgrown the current one.  In some cases, people really do need larger homes, but other times, homeowners just need to use their property—inside and out—differently.  In a tough economy, like the one we’re in, it’s especially important to understand that difference.  Do you think you’ve outgrown your house, but can’t afford to build an expensive home addition or move to something larger?  Thankfully, there are alternatives.  One significantly more budget-friendly option I recommend for people who decide to stay put (at least temporarily) is an outdoor storage building.  “A shed instead of a larger house?” you may ask.  Absolutely!  A great shed, ...

One of my Dad's traditions at the lake house is to build a campfire outside almost every night.  My dad likes to eat popcorn around the fire, but when the grandkids visit, it's time to break out the good ol' traditional smores!  After all, what kid can resist melted chocolate and gooey marshmallows smooshed between graham crackers?  For a change of pace for the kids' campfire sweet treats, one night my sister-in-law introduced us all to Hobo Pies.  If you've never had a Hobo Pie, you're in for, well, something different from smores.  :)  First of all, to make a Hobo Pie over a campfire, you need an iron pie maker, available in camping departments.  Then, you'll need bread and some fillings.  In the tradition of "pie", my sister-in-law br...

Lifetime Chairs at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Did you know that an estimated 2.5 million people go to the Macys Thanksgiving Day Paradein New York City each year? Thats roughly twice the population of Hawaii, and all these people are standing on the same street in New York City at the same time to watch the parade.

Because theres such limited front-row space, people show up 3 or 4 hours before the parade starts to get the best views, which means a lot of time standing and waiting. This year, to make the morning more relaxing, we decided to bring Lifetime Chairs to some of these people who were anticipating the start of the parade. That way, they could have a comfortable place to sit and rest their feet while getting a great view of all the floats, dancers and balloons. All the people who sat in...
