Tips for everyday clutter control  



HGTV has a fascinating new show called Consumed. Each week they go into the home of another family who just has too much stuff.


The creators of the program have an article on with five ways to help us all cope with every day clutter:


1. Make your bed every day - as soon as you get up. A freshly made bed is less of a magnet for discarded jeans, handbags, belts and piles of magazines and newspapers. Think of it like brushing your teeth, you wouldn't leave home without doing it.

Syd and Cyndy's Story



After selling a large suburban home early this year, we moved into a small downtown condo which we had owned since 2008.


Although we knew we wanted to live in the city, we were not sure whether it would be in a (larger) condo or a house. We were also not sure about the desired neighbourhood.


We started looking with Shawn in mid-2010 when we put our home up for sale. Throughout this time, and our periodic change of mind, Shawn patiently showed us properties that we requested.


He understood that we knew the pros and cons of the two options (condo vs house) and did not try to steer us in either direction.

Best Manicure in Toronto




The best manicure in Toronto, first and foremost, is determined by the quality of the treatment. You can be lavished with bottomless mugs of rosemary tea and swathed in the soothing sounds of the latest in generic jazz, but if you don't walk out with your nails looking top-notch, you're inevitably going to feel as though you've wasted your money.


Customers of the following nail salons know no such sentiments. While they all have stellar reputations when it comes to their manicures and pedicures, many go above and beyond in creating relaxing atmospheres where you really feel like you're being pampered. Floating rose petals can have powerful effects, it seems.
