1.) Buy extras of the basic tools you need to use often, such as pliers, screwdrivers, hammers and levels. Put them in both spaces. Worth a little splurge not wasting time searching for items and saves trips up and down the stairs. The wallet may be a little lighter, but your back and knees with thank you. Fewer expletives will be uttered as well. Guaranteed!
2.) Place the manuals to your utilities in plastic bags and hang them where they can be easily referenced by you or the service technician.
4.) Unless you are going to be super diligent about transferring a small amount of paint into another container and labeling it...get rid of it. Cans of paint take up valuable space for a "maybe situation". Discard old paint, varnish and thinner. But, not in the trash! Every county and city has either a hazardous waste drop off/pick-up schedule. This month, cans that I am confident we no longer need for touch-ups will dropped off at an area high school. Gather yours together and check online to inquire about proper disposal!

I would love to hear if anyone has been inspired or motivated to tackle one of their own projects yet? Now is the time...before the holidays!
