Throw Blankets for the Thrillers and Chillers

3 Day Blinds 20% Off banner ad

Isn’t there something really cool about laying around on the family room floor, with the whole family, watching a creepy movie? There’s an extra special feeling that comes over you in the winter, though. It seems like the trees move a little differently, and the wind picks up speed and strength as you watch the movie, waiting for the next screaming moment. Or is it just me?

I love the times when my husband, all three kids and myself get to enjoy a classic thriller… even the oldies-but-goodies like ‘Jaws‘ and ‘Nightmare On Elm Street‘. You know what’s about to happen, but it’s almost like your mind goes back in time and you’re watching the movie for the first time. Sure, the technology is way outdated, but watching an old movie in poor color quality, is like listening to an old ‘Kiss‘ album on vinyl, as opposed to CD… it just ain’t the same!

It’s no secret that color, character and mood have a lot of influence over each other. The colors you choose to incorporate into your surroundings (wall color, clothing, etc.) say a lot about the type of person you are.

How To Upgrade Your Space On a Budget

With Spring just around the corner, you may be wondering how you can upgrade your home or office without blowing your savings or being broke each payday. Well, here are a few tips and suggestions that will help you get it done with no regrets! 

Prioritize your rooms

First, figure out which rooms you’d like to spruce up a bit.. Since most of us work with a tight budget, when it comes to updating our home, let’s just work on one room at a time. This will help you figure out all the supplies you’ll need for the rest of the rooms you’ll be working on. Trust me, chances are, you’ll feel like a yo-yo, going back and forth to the store to get that one little think you forgot, while upgrading your first room.

For the sake of time, I’ll just talk about general concepts to consider, that you can use in each room you’re going to upgrade.The bigger the project, the more detailed you’ll get. Let us know if we can help you find the answers or resources to help you get the project done. We’re here to help!

Shopping online is a great way to compare prices, get exclusive discounts and coupons.

Colors and textures

Each room should have its own look and feel, but still be somewhat related to the look and feel of the other rooms in your home or office. To get your creative juices flowing, follow this thought process:

  • Do you want to completely change the room color and texture? If so, wall paint will be your best bet. You can find some really good deals on paint colors that someone thought they wanted, but decided against. I once received 80% off two gallons of paint this way! Check with your local Home DepotLowe’sAce Hardware and general store (yes, they do still exist! Lol) to see if they have any such treasures. Take your time and shop around. Also, look for sales, coupons and deals on the painting supplies you will need.
  • What is the focal point of the room? Sometimes, something as simple as adding a decorative throw pillow or throw blanket with brilliant colors, can change the focal point of a room. If you can’t go all the way with new flooring, add another splash of color, using a creative throw rug, and BAM… your space will POP!
  • You’d be surprised at how a few new light fixtures can go a long way! A few cool new lamps and ceiling fans are always an easy, and budget-friendly solution to changing up a room’s look and feel. Start checking for sales now, though. The warmer it gets outside, the closer to boiling over your budget will get.

accepting what you can’t change.

Great post! There are always excuses for why NOT to do things. Don’t use energy on what you can’t change. Use all of your energy on what you can change.

When people ask me how I lost my weight, I always tell them that I simply changed my life. I changed my eating habits, I changed my exercise habits, and I changed my emotional habits. Losing weight is not about being on a diet, it’s about learning to be healthy. In doing so, keeping your weight off will be easy, because you have learnt to do so. Learning to live your life a completely different way is no easy task, but it is possible. See, the problem with diets is that they are for a limited time only. You set out on a 3 month venture to lose the weight and you’ve cut out all of your carbs to fit into that dress for your wedding. While many people succeed in doing this, it is important to realize that they have only succeeded in losing the weight. Not keeping it…

I’m Sick Of It!

No, I’m not talking about politics (although I could). Not talking about the weather, either. I’m talking about the ongoing issues I have with customer service, or lack thereof. Unfortunately, Like most people, we have to make a purchase, of some sort, each and every day. This gives me the opportunity, or misfortune, to experience customer service at its best and worst. I’m not even going to go into online shopping or over-the-phone customer service.

Just so I’m not perceived as some overindulgent, gotta-have-it-my-way prima dona, let me differentiate the good customer service from the bad customer service, from my perspective, in a few different scenarios:

1. You need help locating an item in the store:

Good customer service – Establishing eye contact with me, “Sure we have those. If you go to aisle #2, they’ll be on the right-hand side, next to the crackers.” Or even better yet, they actually take me to the item.

Poor customer service – While not even glancing in my direction, “Yeah, there by the crackers.” or even worse, “I don’t know. That’s not my department. Go to that department and you should see someone over there. Ask them.”

2. At the checkout, an item doesn’t ring up the right amount, and you state that to the cashier:

Good customer service – “Ok. Give me one second to verify the price you’re stating. It’ll only take a minute.” They, then, either call someone to verify the sale price or they, themselves, go check the price.

Poor customer service – “Sorry, ma’am. That’s the price that’s coming up. I can’t override the computer. Do you want it or not?” or “I can call a manager, but it’s gonna take a while for them to get here. Do you want to wait?”

3. You call a company to ask for clarification. For example, you need to know how many gigs of memory an advertised pc has:

Good customer service – “Please hold on one minute while I find that out for you.” and they actually come back to the phone quickly with the information.

Poor customer service – “Please hold while I find that out for you.” and they take so long you hang up. Or, they transfer you to another department and they either take forever to answer, if they answer, or they never come back to the phone.

I’ve been in customer service, in some form or fashion, for over 30 years. Customers are not always the easiest to deal with. I do not, and never have, believed “the customer is always right.” So, I don’t expect to have my way each time. The biggest gripe I have is that too many employees (one is too many for me) carry on with an attitude like they don’t care if a customer walks in the store or not, because they don’t want to be bothered. Well, that clearly is poor customer service, in my opinion. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect some level of sincere gratitude even when passing a customer on your way out of the door, after clocking out, or going on break. No ass-kissing, just be pleasant.

After a really bad experience with an employee the other day, I looked online for an article on customer service. It didn’t surprise me, one bit, that the very 1st article was one on customer dissatisfaction. “Frustration runs high – Sixty-four percent of respondents said that during the previous 12 months they had left a store because service was poor, and 67 percent had hung up on customer service without having had their problem addressed.” ConsumerReports.org

I posted on Google Plus, the other day, after this latest incident of poor customer service, that it would be nice to go back to the old days when you were greeted by name, or even just greeted. Most of us work hard for our money that we’re about to spend, so how about making it a little easier and more comfortable for us to spend it here?!

My final point is, in my opinion, customer service boils down to the individual giving it, and their overall personality. We all have good and bad days. True. My stance is, if you’re having that bad of a day, and you have to deal with customers, you really need to find a way to lighten up your mood. Don’t bring issues with you to work and certainly do not display your bad disposition to your customers.

I know it’s not easy, and believe me, being a single mother of two very active kids (football, basketball, cheerleading, etc) and working two jobs, i know it is NOT easy… but a MUST! My customers were not easy either. I was an Account Manager with over 1100 fast food restaurant Managers for clients. You can figure out the rest.

Call me naive or a dreamer, but I truly believe in “each one, teach one”. If you know someone who can use some uplifting words, a babysitter just to get a break, or any other form of reaching out, please do so. We’ve become a society of crabby, disrespectful and isolated people. The worst part is, the kids are learning from us… good and bad.
