Types of Fixtures

Posted by admin in Uncategorized

When you think about fixtures in the home, you might think about the larger things, such as ceiling fans an lights. While these are considered fixtures, there are other things in the home to think about when you start remodeling and changing the appearance of the rooms.

Before you begin changing the fixtures, you need to look at what you have now and what you want to change about the room. Knobs on cabinets and drawers are considered fixtures, and they are often the easiest things to replace in any room of the home. All you have to do is unscrew the fixture, and replace it with something different. Try to find a different shape or color to change the appearance of the room. Another fixture that you can replace is the faucet on the sink in the kitchen or the bathroom. This is another area where you might want to consider getting something completely different than what you currently have so that it changes the look of the room.

Getting into Life Coaching Business

Posted by Mark Hoppus in Uncategorized

I have spent awhile unemployed, just living off of my savings, and not really sure what I should do. It is kind of frustrating to not have a path in life that makes sense to you. But of course, I should be used to such frustrations by now, because they have plagued by false starts in my life, and I just want to find something that makes me happy. That is why I am curious to look into life coaching and see if ti might be the right career path for me.

I have thought about it in the past, briefly, but never considered it in great depth. But I had an encounter with a guy who worked as a life coach recently, and he seemed to have a lot in common with me. Read entire article.

Saving Money on Renters Insurance

Posted by Mark Hoppus in Uncategorized

I just renewed my lease for my apartment and after I signed the new lease, the apartment manager informed me that I would need to get renter’s insurance as soon as possible, in order to continue living in the apartment. I wish that was made explicit to me before I had signed the new lease, and I was not aware of any changes to the lease from the previous year. Kind of underhanded, if you ask me, but I want to save while renting on renter’s insurance and try to find the best policy I can get.

I do not really anticipate having any need for renter’s insurance, unless the whole apartment complex burns down, or something like that. But it would be ncie to look at my options and see what the cheapest policies are. I will probably just go with a bare bones minimum amount of coverage, because it seems like I would be wasting money if I went with anything more than that.

But I suppose I figure it all out and maybe I will be able to get this wrapped up and taken care of tonight. It is not like I have any good reason to just let it remain unresolved and floating over my head, like some sort of albatross. It should be fairly quick to get it done, and the office actually gave me a number to contact for a person they recommend for insurance. But before I give the guy a call, I think it would be a good idea for me to look around on the Internet a bit, and see what people are paying for renter’s insurance. That should help me to have a better idea as to whether I am getting a fair deal when I call the agent they suggested.
