Start 2015 off fresh with these green cleaning and organizing tips!

Below are a few tips to spruce up your apartment for the new year. 

1) Go through cabinets, closets, and desks to find and recycle all unneeded paper products.
2) Feeling the burden of an overstuffed closet? Give your old clothes a second life; donate any unused clothing to Goodwill!
3) Recycle your electronic products. Most electronics stores will take your old or broken products and recycle them. Avoid tossing those in the trash!
4) Use eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Most stores carry a great selection of environmentally friendly cleaning products, pick some up on your next shopping trip. Or, better yet - make your own! Simple household items like baking soda and vinegar can be used for any number of jobs.
5) Freshen up! Simmering water, citrus peel, and fresh mint or basil will lighten up the air in your apartment without any added toxins from synthetic air-fresheners (and it will save you money as well!). Make sure you never leave your stove unattended. 

Why wait until spring, when cleaning can be this simple? Keeping it green will help your apartment stay healthy and toxin free. What are your favorite go-to green cleaning or organizing tips? Comment below to share your ideas!

Summer is almost over!

Time for one last vacation before the warm weather ends? Click below for tips to keep your home safe while you enjoy your vacation.

1. Let the landlord or office manager know you will be out of town. They can hold any mail or packages that come for you, and more importantly watch for any suspicious activity around your home.  
2. You can arrange to have a trusted friend or neighbor watch your home while you are out of town. Make sure to give your landlord or office manager the name of the person you have watching your home so they do not report this person as a trespasser.      
3. Unplug electronics that are not absolutely necessary while you are away. Most electronics still use power if you leave them plugged in. Examples of things to unplug include: TVs, video game systems, lamps, computers, and small kitchen appliances.
4. Clean your home before you leave. Remove any perishable foods from the refrigerator, take out the garbage, and sweep or vacuum.  Why ruin your vacation by having to clean when you return home?
5. Lastly, if you are not taking your car on a long road trip, make sure to remove all valuables and park it in a safe place.

Comment below with any of your own suggestions or ideas on keeping your home safe this summer.
