If you just want rid of everything then that is fine it can be arranged. If you are clearing out after a death of a loved one or friend then you may just want to leave it to the experts. But, for most people it is a good idea to check what is worth salvaging for recycling, selling, donating to charity or throwing away first as somebody’s junk is another person’s treasure. Nowadays, too much stuff gets thrown away so you can help the environment by recycling, selling it on or donating it to a needy cause.
Before you have the rubbish or junk removed professionally is to make sure you have sorted everything you want to keep. It is a good idea to allow some time for this process. Going through the contents of a house or office is a big job. It is a good idea to go through one room at a time, and be completely organized with everything. You will need to have a plan of what you want to keep, sell, donate and dump. A good tip is to have a color code to each of these tasks to make it a little easier. If you are keeping some of the possession then they will needed to be packaged safely and labeled so they don’t get thrown away by accident.

Sell on at car boots or in a local paper bits and pieces you don’t want. It is a good idea to give away what you don’t need and charities always need unwanted items so call and arrange for a collection. Some of your contents can be recycled remember paper, metal, glass, plastic and metal etc. If getting rid of paper remember to shred the paper first for security measures. The correct disposal of paints, asbestos, light bulbs, oil and pesticides is required and a clearance company can deal with this. In addition electrical items will need special permits to tip.
When you have done what you need to do the clearance firm can sort the remaining stuff and completely empty the remaining junk. After all of this hard work your place will be are left clear and free. If you require other services such as house removals and storage or cleaning then a clearance company can help arrange help to get things back into order.

Top 5 DIY Home Security Projects By Naomi Broderick

property-protection-trustThere are many valuables that we would like to keep protected within our homes including important documents, jewelry, and money. Although burglary and theft can’t always be prevented in your home, there are many ways that you can make it more difficult for them to find your things. Here is a list of the top five DIY home security projects to help prevent theft of your valuables.

Hollowed Book – One of the most common, but most successful and popular ways to protect your valuables, is to hollow out a book. It may take you a couple of days depending on how determined you are to finish it, but it’s a pretty simple process. First, you’ll need a hardback book, some glue, a box cutter, and a brush you don’t mind getting glue in. Mix the glue with a little water (making it about 60% glue), hold the pages together and begin gluing the outside of the book. Once it’s dried, you can begin cutting out your pages from the middle leaving about ½ in. around the edges to make it look like the pages are still in the book. Once you reach the back of the book, you can take glue to the inside of the book to make sure that everything stays together. Now, you have a hollowed out book to hide some of your valuables in!

Safe Pillow – Although this way is a little bit trickier, it is a great way to make sure that your valuables stay safe. You’ll need a throw pillow that you’re willing to cut up, some scissors, thread the same color as the pillow, and some scissors. Cut a horizontal line on the back of the throw pillow that matches the length of the zipper. Take out the stuffing and start stitching the zipper into the pillow. Then, you can put the box or valuables you have set aside into the pillow with the stuffing, making sure the valuables are surrounded by the stuffing so you can’t feel them, and zipping up the pillow. Now you have a secret hiding place, in plain sight, that can help you keep your valuables safe and away from prying eyes.

Painted Jar – A great and simple project that you can finish in a day is to paint a food jar, particularly mayonnaise jars, to make them look like they still have food in them when in fact, it is holding your valuables. Find a paint that looks like mayo and gradually paint the inside of the jar with the color, making sure that it doesn’t get on the outside. A good way to prevent this is to use a plastic bag on the outside to prevent drips. Then, once your paint is completely dry on the inside (could take a couple of days depending on the paint and how thick it is), you can hide your valuables that won’t be harmed by cold temperatures and put it in the fridge!

Potted Plant – Although it may seem simple, using a potted plant to hide your valuables or money is a great way to thwart people who would steal from you. All you need is a plant that you want to hide your items in, and an old medicine bottle or small watertight container. Then, put your valuables or money into the bottle or container and dig a hole big enough for the container in your potted plant. You can then try to remember where your valuables are hidden, or you can put down a small rock or plant decoration to remind you where you hid your valuables.

False Bottom Drawers – Hiding things is drawers is not always the best way to protect important documents and valuables, but hiding things ‘underneath’ your drawers is a great way to prevent valuables from getting stolen. All you need is fabric or wood that looks like the bottom of your drawers cut to the size that you need. Then, you can put your valuables in the drawer, put the false bottom over them, and fill up the drawer with things that you normally would such as clothes, office supplies, or less important paperwork. False bottom drawers are a great way to hid paperwork and other important documents that people might want to steal. This way, even if someone rifles through the drawer, they won’t be able to find anything of value.

Drying Herbs In The Microwave

7 I tried this with parsley and works like a charm – so time saving since I did not have to to and let dry! Now I know it works I will get the rest of this done so we will have our cabinet filled with enough parsley for the year! Now on to find a neat way to store it all – we had used old milk containers which work out ok but as we used the herbs we were always stuck with these 1/2 gallon milk containers that were partially filled.

How to right the right gardener every time

The first step should always be to evaluate the process which lies ahead. You will likely have a great deal of work which will need to be done, but you might not know the specifics of what it is that you need help with. When it comes to finding the best help, it is essential to know what you need help with. While you will lack the expertise to know how to accomplish your gardening goals, you will likely have an idea of the long term goal for your garden and what it is that you would like to achieve. Whether you want topiary or a pond area, knowing the end goal when it comes to your garden means that you will be able to find a firm which will offer the kinds of services which really make a difference to you.

As well as having an excellent idea of the kind of solution which you are looking for, it is important that you have a reckoning on the details of the job itself. It might be that you have a large garden with some specific features or it could be that there is only a small area which needs expert attention. Having an understanding of the dimensions and features will allow companies to provide a more accurate quote for their services and will allow you to find the company which is right for you and your situation. As well as the factors involved in the garden itself, you can also have a think about the budget and price range which you have available to your requirements and the time and the schedule which you would like to work towards. Again, this will mean that you are better able to get the service which really suits your needs.

Once you have an idea of these kinds of factors and the details of your gardening and what you require, it is time to start thinking about potential companies. One look through the phone book or a quick internet search should be enough to turn up some names and you should begin to call these companies up and explain the services which you require. It can also help to talk to people you know and find out if there is anyone who they might recommend. This can mean that you are better placed to find a good service which is endorsed by someone you trust. Similarly, internet reviews can deliver an excellent means of judging what a company has to offer so it can be worth doing some research on these kinds of reviews.

Once you have talked to a few firms, you should find yourself with a variety of quotes from a number of companies. Now, all you need to do is to look through these quotes and find the ones which work best with the factors which we established earlier in the process. Doing this should provide a good idea of the gardeners who are best able to help you.

Is Your Garage Full? What Options Are There For Clearing Space?

When it comes to clearing out space in your home, there are a multitude of services and solutions available. Whatever it is that you need clearing, there is always a way in which to make sure that you find the best solution to suit your needs. Whether you need flat clearance or office clearance services, taking the time to find the right solution for you can mean that you always have the very best means of clearing space in your home. But what about your garage? As an extension of the main house, it can often be used as an area in which you will want to store your items, but what should you do when it comes to garage clearance? Is your garage full One of the first things which you should consider when it comes to clearing space is the ability to sell any valuable items in order to get rid of them. If you have any items which might be worth any amount of money, the ability to sell these possessions can mean that you have a quick and easy means of getting rid of the items and clearing space which not only helps you out but can actually put money in your pocket. If you are looking to clear space in order to purchase a new item, then the ability to regain some of the costs by selling older items in order to pay for the new ones. This method will also mean that you are able to request that the purchaser comes and collects the item which can make the process of ridding yourself of these items far, far easier. When it comes to house, garage, office or garden clearance, selling possessions is always an option which can do a great deal to help you. Is your garage full2 As well as selling any items which you might want to get rid of, it is also possible to simply give items away. While it may not allow you to recoup some of your costs in the same way which selling items will do, giving the items away can be just as effective when it comes to clearing space. Depending on the condition of the items, it might well be that many people are able to make a good use of these items. You can check with friends and family in order to see whether anyone is able to take the items off your hands. If not, there is also the option of donating these items to local charities and charity shops. If they are accepted by the charities, it can mean that items which would otherwise be thrown away can be put to good use. If you are giving an item to a friend or someone you know, then it can be possible for you to have them collect the item though this might not be possible when donating to charity. If you do not wish to deal with the hassle of advertising or donating your possessions but still wish to clear space in your garage, then there remains another option in order to make sure that you have the space available to you. All you will need to do is to throw away those items which you no longer want and if you are worried about the process then it is possible to hire clearance services in order to make sure that you get the very best solution. When it comes to larger and heavier items, these professional services can make everything entirely easy and can mean that you are able to enjoy extra space in your garage with a minimal effort.
