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!

Windows - make use of your window space by creating beautiful snowflakes with a glue gun

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.

#July is a month to celebrate with family and friends!
Some of the best summer celebrations involve barbecues or cookouts. Click below for a few safety tips for your next get together. 

1. Whether you use a charcoal or gas barbecue always make sure to follow proper safety precautions when lighting, cooking, and storing the barbecue.  Follow factory guidelines when using lighter fluid or propane tanks, clean your grill regularly to prevent grease fires, and store your grill away from anything that is flammable or hazardous. 
2. You should know the proper cooking temperatures and preparation for the food you are serving at your get together (especially meat). The last thing you want to do is make your friends or family sick. 
3. Make sure to have plenty of drinking water on hand so your guests can stay well hydrated.
4. Provide shade or a covered area where your guests can get out of the sun and cool off.
5. If you will be serving alcoholic beverages at your get together, please enjoy responsibly and make sure your guests do so as well.
6. If you will be lighting off #fireworks at your get together make sure you use extreme caution when handling, lighting, and disposing of the fireworks.  Keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby, never point the fireworks toward anyone else, and always stand a safe distance from the devices.  Make sure you know local laws and regulations regarding pyrotechnics and fireworks.

Spring is here and summer is near. That means amazing weather, bbq’s and a new opportunity to grow some flowers or vegetables. You do not need a huge garden to achieve this. In fact window gardening is becoming very popular for apartment renters. Here are some tips and tricks to get you off on the right foot with window gardening this spring. 

* Select plants that will grow well in your environment. Take into account average temperature and how much sunlight your window gets. Some ideas to get you started include basil, peppers and green onions.
* Add high quality potting mix to your pots.
* Sow your seeds about ½ an inch apart.
* Water your plants based on their needs. Some plants need more water than others.

Please comment below with a list of what you are growing on your window sill this spring!

Summer is here!

Click below for tips to help you have a happy and healthy summer! 

1. Do you want to save energy, money, and keep your home cool this summer? Remember to keep windows and blinds closed during the hotter hours of the day, turn off any unnecessary lights or appliances when not in use, and use ceiling or window fans at night to cool your home  

2. During summer we all like to open up windows and let the fresh air flow through our homes. Unfortunately, many people forget you should always close and lock your windows when leaving home whether it is just for the day or for a long summer vacation. 

3. There is nothing worse than getting into your car when it has been sitting in the sun all day. Park your car in a shaded or covered parking spot. Over time this can also help save the paint job and interior of your car. 

4 Get outdoors to enjoy your favorite sport or hobby, stay hydrated, and regularly apply sunscreen. These simple things can go a long way to keeping you happy and healthy this summer

Maintenance SUCKS! The most irresponsible staff and rude people I have ever met. HOT water is an issue everyday of the winter. Snow is never cleaned - most LAZY maintenance. I could not agree more with some other people complaining about heater and services. Maintenance should be changed if they are not able to serve this huge community.

Horrible place to live. You can hear whispered conversations in neighboring apartments like you are in the room with them, Snow does not get removed until usually the day after the storm. Missed a day of work due to the fact that even though the roads were clear , I could not leave my parking lot...

I've lived at Richfield Village for 8 years and I must say I have never experienced most of the issues mentioned in these posts. The heating system is old and definitely needs to be upgraded! But the management and maintenance people have always been very nice and professional to me and my family. We've never had an issue. The buildings are nice and so is the landscaping. And you can't beat the location. We definitely plan to stay for several more years until we can hopefully buy a house.

HOT!!! It is crazy to have to run the AC units in WINTER! Once the boilers turn on for the season, you have NO CONTROL over the heat! If it is under 55 degrees outside, the heat is on. That means that all day, every day the heat is on and it reaches temperatures that can hit 100 degrees inside in the winter. This is unhealthy! The windows all have AC units in them which are screwed in, as in the windows are screwed shut. There are two windows, one by the front door and one in the kitchen. My cat pushed both screens out. If my cat could do it, so could a burglar, which this apt complex is not without. "Lock your windows!" a neighbor told me when we first moved in. Now we are being cooked out of our apt. It is over-priced and over heated; it is under sized and under managed. Maintenance is fairly useless and if it requires an outside expert, you can wait weeks before they call one, or actually call you back. Also, limited parking in winter because they don't shovel until long after the storm and still haven't plowed from a large storm last week meaning that the court I live on is a disaster where the only parking spaces are those that people dug out themselves. I would NOT recommend this apartment complex to anyone, unless you love the unbearable heat all year round

I had lived here for almost two years. Now, I am going to move out, I almost can't wait. I saw many people give all kind of feedback, bad or good. My opinion: it all depends on your lucky. If you live in the first floor, you might feel very uncomfortable with the noise from upper level. If you live in the second floor and if you don't smoke, you may get bad feeling about downstairs’ smoking neighbor, the smoke will come from everywhere such as from your floor, kitchen pipes holes on the wall, bath and closet. If you complain about that, the lady in the office will shrug and said, "We can't do anything about that. Why don't you buy your own house?" It’s small (two bedrooms in 600sq ft), almost no closet or storage place. You have to clean your staff before move in, or it could be a problem. AC is very noisy and Heat is really powerful. I saw many people use AC in the winter because the heat is too "good". I haven't seen bug problem but as I said, depends on how lucky you are. Because if you have any problem as I described above, they will say: "We can't do anything about it, why not buy your own house?" If you want to test your lucky, welcome to move in.

I wish I never moved here. I'm not going to echo previous comments about the ridiculous heat situation, mold, half assed and rude maintenance and third rate appliances but please believe the previous commenters. It's all true. On the plus side it's a good location if u work near or in the city with access to everything. Also Emily in the front office is nice but helpless given that she can't do anything about our grievances.
