Checklist for Moving

The road is always easier if you’re traveling with a good map. Knowing when to get things done — and in what order — will put your mind at ease when the details of a big move threaten to overwhelm you.

To make moving easier, here are the list of things you need do before the day.

  • Get organized: Set aside a folder or file where you can put all your move-related paperwork. Dedicate a notebook as your moving notebook for all your notes.
  • Start sorting: Decide what to keep, discard or donate. If you’re moving to a smaller place, be aggressive in your decision making.
  • Research moving companies: Go online to check for moving companies with positive reviews. Ask friends and family if they have any references for moving companies. Take a week or two to research ? you’re not in rush mode quite yet.
  • Get supplies: Buy packing materials ? boxes, tape, markers and bubble wrap.
  • Plan a garage sale: As you go through your possessions, you’ll find things you don’t want to move. It’s a perfect time to lighten your load. In the process, you’ll make a few bucks at the garage sale to spend on moving expenses.
  • Strategize your food situation: Use up food items that you don’t want to move. Plan ahead to have nothing left in your freezer by your move date. Same goes for your pantry ? make a plan to consume anything that’s already open.
  • Pets and plants: Make arrangements to get your animals and plants to your new home.
  • Notify utilities: Start the process of closing out utility service at your current place and getting utilities set up at your new residence.
  • Keep important documents handy: Make sure to have any documents related to the move at the ready.
  • Defrost and clear: Clean out your empty fridge and freezer. Check your cupboards and pantry for any open food items.

Choosing the Right Ceiling Lights

Choosing a ceiling light for your home from a catalog or online can make many people nervous. They are unsure of the finishes, the correct size, or are just unsure what type to choose.

Here we have tried to make it easier for you, with tips and suggestions that have helped many of our customers over the years, who to this day are still delighted with their purchase.

  1. Considerations – It is always a good idea to measure the height of your ceiling before deciding on the type of ceiling light will be most suitable. At this stage you will know whether it needs to be suspended on a chain, semi flush, or flush mounted.
  2. Style – What style of décor are you seeking to achieve? Modern, traditional, contemporary, or do you have a themed style to your house such as Art Deco, or do you live in a rustic 18th century farmhouse?
  3. What Size do I need?  – Generally speaking how much illumination you need in a particular room is a matter of personal choice. Some may want the room in question to be particularly bright; some may require a soft ambient light for the room. Many other factors come into play, for instance, does the room have wall lights, do they come on with the main light or are they switched independently? Are there table lamps and floor lamps in the room?
  4. Do you want atmosphere? – Want to show a room in the best (ie. most forgiving) light? Consider a fixture that gives off diffuse light, which casts a pervasive soft, warm light that flatters the way you look and masks the marks on your walls.

Types of Home Loans

There are an infinite number of loan types out there, and lenders are constantly coming up with creative ways to wrangle in new homeowners. The type of home loan you choose can make or break you as a borrower, so make sure you fully understand it before making any kind of commitment.

Here are some of the home loan types…

Fixed Home Loans

The interest rate is fixed for a certain period of time, generally between 1 and 5 years, but can be taken for extended periods in some circumstances. This means that the regular repayments will stay the same regardless of changes in the interest rate, providing a degree of financial certainty for the period.


Variable Home Loans

This is the most popular home loan in Australia where the interest rate fluctuates up or down depending on the cash rate set by the Reserve Bank of Australia. The regular repayments pay off some of the principal and the interest each contracted period.


Split Rate Loans

One portion of the loan is fixed, while the other is variable. The proportion for each will be decided by the borrower and this can be a good option when you have concerns about the effect on your household budget in a rising interest rate market.

Clean your House Quick!

We’re in the business of cleaning well, but we also want you to get chores out of the way as quickly as possible. And if you’re committing these common cleaning mistakes, you just might be scrubbing up sun up to sun down.

Here are quick tips to help you out!

  • Time It: If you actually time how long it takes to do certain chores, you won’t mind them as much, says Cilley. Believe it or not, most chores only take 10 minutes.
  • Do Quick Rescues: Do a 5-minute sweep through each room, taking a laundry basket with you. Place in it anything that doesn’t belong in that room, then put away the stuff that does belong there.
  • Multitask: Sarah Aguirre makes tasks go faster by doing two things at once. While on the phone, she folds laundry, fluffs pillows, picks up stray magazines and books, does dishes, sweeps or dusts.
  • Crumple Paper Towels…Forever: Use microfiber cloths instead. When wet, they sanitize and clean floors, counters, glass and tile, and eliminate the need for other cleaning products. They’re reusable (machine-wash, hang to dry) and cost about $5 for a two-pack.
  • Clean as You Go: Linda Cobb suggests filling your sink with hot soapy water as you start dinner. “Place used dishes and pans in the filled sink so they’ll be soaking while you eat,” she says. Also, wipe up any spills immediately—don’t give sauces, oils or spices a chance to sit around.
  • Pick the Right Broom: For indoors, choose one with finer bristles to pick up smaller dirt particles. For outdoors, go for stronger, stiffer bristles, which work better to clear porous surfaces.
  • Super Storage: Store brooms with the handle down. It makes them easier to find and protects the bristles.
