How to Get Rid of Stuff and Declutter Your Life

How to Get Rid of Stuff and Declutter Your Life By: Deirdre Sullivan Published: November 13, 2012 You can get that warm, fuzzy holiday feeling and make a few bucks by responsibly ditching all the excess stuff you accumulate, particularly at this time of year.   Before you cast off, sort out  This video by home organizer Alejandra Costello demonstrates her system for organizing items you wish to donate, sell, return, or exchange. You designate an area in the home — preferably near an exit — for the stuff you don’t want to forget to take out the door with you. What we really liked best about this video is that she includes tips for keeping your downsizing efforts on track. Hazardous household materials Sure, we all know where to recycle stuff like soda cans and water bottles, but what about dicey items like medications, paint thinners, or asbestos? Earth911.com, along with its free app iRecycle, is one of the best sources for finding acceptance centers that handle household hazardous waste. Just enter the type of junk you need to unload, like compact fluorescent light bulbs (did you know they have traces of mercury?), along with your ZIP code, and it provides the nearest recycling center to you. Learn more about stuff that’s considered household hazardous waste, by watching this hilarious Canadian video made for the city of Toronto. Old technology If you want to recycle appliances, cameras, computers, and TVs, Best Buy Recycle will take them, no matter where you bought them originally. The retailer charges $100 to pick up old appliances like TVs if you’re not also having a new Best...

No Sweat: Programmable Thermostats Reduce Your Energy Costs

No Sweat: Programmable Thermostats Reduce Your Energy Costs By: Les Shu Advanced programmable thermostats give you precise control over your heating and cooling, helping to reduce wasted energy. High-def, high-tech settings You wouldn’t think of spending much time in front of your thermostat, but the newest advanced models–with their colorful touchscreen displays–are an engaging, interactive experience. They offer separate programs for each day of the week, and can even alert you if service is required. With its high-definition screen display, Honeywell’s Prestige Comfort System resembles a mini-computer more than a traditional thermostat. In addition to indoor temperature, the Prestige’s graphical user interface can display outdoor conditions and humidity with an add-on sensor. An onscreen wizard interviews you about your usage based on simple questions, and then sets a program accordingly. A portable controller lets you adjust settings from any room in the house. The Prestige is priced from $250 and up. If you can live without a fancy display, an advanced programmable thermostat from HAIcosts around $300 to $400, while a simpler seven-day programmable model from Huntercosts $99. Control from afar What if you’re on your way to a long vacation, and you suddenly realized you’d forgotten to turn down your home’s thermostat? If your home is equipped with the Smart Thermostat from ecobee, you can tap into the system through a personalized web portal anywhere there’s Internet access. Log in to check on your HVAC’s performance and make adjustments on the fly. The unit sells for $469. Manage your home’s HVAC via a home automation app from Control 4. The sophisticated system allows you to change thermostat settings from your smartphone, pad, and PC. In addition,...
