Earth Day Lets Celebrate

Earth Day

 

Earth Day is tomorrow April 22 and there are many things you can do that are great for the planet and are free or inexpensive for you. They will also help lower your energy bills, saving you money!

 

FREE LOW COST
Cut your shower each day by 2 minutes Switch your light bulbs to CFL’s
Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth Purchase a programmable thermostat
Turn off lights when you are not in the room Lower your heat at night and while away at work
Carpool or take the bus to work 1 day a week Use reusable bags for grocery shopping
Recycle your food scraps in the yard waste (if available   in your area) or start your own compost bin When you can, try to shop and eat locally.
Pay all your bills online Replace your shower head with one that is low flow
Unplug appliances (coffee maker, toaster, printer etc)   when not in use. When buying new appliances, make sure thy are energy   efficient(not always low cost but it will save you money on your utility   bills)
Rather than drive walk to dinner at your local restaurant   (weather permitting of course) Purchase products that use minimal packaging
  Buy compostable trash bags for kitchen waste.
  Buy biodegradable products (cups, napkins, plates, etc)

Nylons?

This one is a bit of Beauty, Green tips and household all rolled into one. When you have fine particles and you need to strain them in a colander cut off a piece of old clean (of course) pantyhose (yes, pantyhose!) secure them over the bowl or cup to make a sieve, and flip it over to strain. I know it sounds weird but it works great!

Here’s one more nylon tip. If you run out of Swiffer pads use a pair of nylons! Preferably an old pair just cut them and put it over your swiffer pad. Works Great on the floors and really picks up the fuzz and dog hair! Or if you don’t have nylons around the house those chenille socks at the dollar store also work great!

Neighborhood Of The Week

 This quiet peaceful new neighborhood located off of Soper Hill Road and just in the Marysville city limits and in Lake Stevens School district is my pick of the week. Shasta Ridge residents enjoy a 1.5 acre park with full basketball court, play area, large NPGA, territorial views and located on a quiet dead end street.
I love the mix of town-homes with great size yards that started last year at $157K but sold so quickly that prices have jumped up drastically ending the final phase of 3 different style homes at 178K.
The high quality of Belmark service has just started the last phase of single family homes. These new homes have great size lots for new construction and they come with fully landscaped front and back yards!  With a bedroom/ den on the main the Adams floor plan, for example is very open & spacious. 3bdrms, 2.5 bath’s, granite slab island & counters throughout (standard)! There will even be a few models larger with Daylight basements.
Currently these are priced at $254K and $257K and for a short time the builder will give 2% in a closing bonus! Interest rates just dropped again but prices are definitely on the rise. There are only 5 homes left so come take a look now while they are still available.
Give me a call or send me an email for you personal tour
