Buffet Delivered in Pristine Condition

Posted by Louis on

“We go to Oregon every year, antiquing. We would not ever hesitate to use you again. You have done your best to solve a problem (unavoidable delivery delay) that was not in your control. Things happen in life where the outcome is less than desirable. It is what you do with that situation, and the way you interact with the customer after that, is what defines a great company from the rest. You have gotten our buffet to us in pristine condition We are very satisfied. We hope to work with you again.”

How to Paint With Kids

Posted by Louis on

Painting your home doesn’t always sound like something you might be interested in. It actually sounds like something you’d rather have someone else do! But, you have kids and they are begging you to let them help. Now what? Figure out a plan that involves you and your kids working together!

Painting is Beneficial to Kids

Did you know that painting is very beneficial to kids of all ages? It helps kids explore colors, express emotions, use their senses and it is an awesome outlet for creativity. When using a paint brush, kids can experience and see the difference between thin and thick lines when using different parts of their brush and also they can mix colors to find out what happens when red mixes with orange, etc. Painting can be a great time to bond, talk and learn with your child! So take advantage of this opportunity! Read More

Tips for Upgrading Your Kitchen at a Low Cost

DIY Low Cost Kitchen Upgrade Ideas

1. Reface & Paint Your Cabinets – Do you have old cabinets that do not go with the rest of your new home? If you want to upgrade your kitchen without completely gutting the whole thing, try buying new cabinet doors, and then give the existing cabinets a fresh coat of paint. Buying new cabinet doors for an average size kitchen can run you around $500. Try your luck on Google and search for “new cabinet doors” and look around to see what you like. You should measure your current doors to see what sizes you’ll need and how many (make a list!). Ordering new cabinet doors online can sometimes be cheaper than home improvement stores. Do some research before you make your purchase. You might also go into the local stores and see if they have any specials or closeouts that might be a good match to your tastes, but again the better deals are usually found online. Read More

Money Saving Tips for Your New Home

Posted by Louis on

Have you recently moved into a new house or apartment and realize that your budget just got a whole lot tighter? Well Transit Systems has some tips for saving money after your move! Check out these places to go and save on things like paint, home goods, furniture and much more!

Local News Papers – When you are new to budgeting, you may be asking – where to start? Your local newspapers are a great place to start. Grocery stores usually have special coupons in their fliers. Courier News tends to have coupons as well. Start to really look at your mail.
Thrift Stores– This is a wonderful place to get decorations for your house. They are extremely cheap and sometimes in great condition. Sometimes this takes patience and a plan, but you can save on making major purchases by buying used items versus new ones. You can often shop for the same style or design, and build a collection of things that match up well. You can save 80% or more compared to buying décor from a larger “Big Box” store. Yes, I said 80% !!
Craigslist – If you are going to need furniture (and who doesn’t), you can save big by going on to craigslist.org and look in both the free section and the for sale items to see if you can source many of these furniture items piece by piece. You will have to do a little driving to get each piece, but building up your collection of household furniture from this method is fun and can save you thousands Read More
