I posted a blog a few weeks ago featuring one way to save time, money, and water. With the water daught still being a concern I’ve come across another great article with 7 more tips on how to save money and water. You can check it out here:

We can also do little things like:
-Turn the water off when you are brushing your teeth or washing your face.
-Use a lower water pressure when turning on your faucet ie: you don’t need to turn the handle on full force to wash your hands/dishes/face/etc. Using half the water flow will still get the job done and saving a little water here and there can go a long way.
-Collect water in a bucket when you are waiting for your shower water to heat up and re-use the water on your plants, garden, or grass.

These are just a few ideas that you can start implementing. If you have any other suggest please feel free to share the knowledge!

Women’s Council of Realtors 2014 Video

My year as VP of membership is quickly coming to an end so I wanted to leave this position with a short video for my fellow Realtor friends to see what it is we do as an organization and what benefits members receive. If you’re not a Realtor you can check this video out to get a better understanding of what I’ve been involved with these past couple of years. I can’t express how grateful I am to be a part of an organization that brings together our local Real Estate community as well as promotes women’s success within this industry. I have met so many amazing people through Women’s Council of Realtors that inspire me to be the best agent I can be for my clients and South Bay community. I am excited to finish this year strong and continue my involvement for years to come. If you have any questions about WCR and how to get involved please don’t hesitate to reach out to me: LaurenW@hmsold.com

Rid Your Home of Common Household Pests

I really enjoyed the tips that I sent out in this month’s mailer that I wanted to share it here on the blog. 

Pest infestations not only cause damage to your home, but treating them can leave a dent in your wallet. That’s why it’s important to prevent the pests from getting comfortable in the first place.

The information below will help you prevent pests from invading your home. The piece provides an overview of the five most common pests found in the home, and offers suggestions to keep them at bay using plants and items found around the house. Of course, if you have an infestation, it’s best to call the exterminator to prevent you from having to make costly repairs.

Pass this information on to your family and friends to help them rid their homes of insects and other vermin.

Have a great pest-free rest of the week!
