Want to Share A Couple of Tips...

Here are some tips I culled from the latest issue of Real Simple:

· Store batteries in the same direction; if positive and negative ends touch, it can shorten the life of the batteries
· Temperature does not affect the performance of lightbulbs, so you can store bulbs in the garage or the attic
· To preserve paint for later use, clean around the lip of the can then cover with plastic wrap before replacing the lid – this prevents rust from seeping in to the paint and makes the lid easier to pry off
· When summer ends, put (dry) lawn furniture cushions into large plastic boxes that you’ve poked holes in to prevent mildew
