We oftentimes associate the word "spring" with "cleaning." After all, they do go hand in hand. If you're feeling a little overwhelmed, we have some tips to help you get the job done!

Make a list of what needs to be cleaned in each room.Lists will help you to stay organized, especially if you have a huge project on your plate. Walk through each room and write down what needs to get done. Writing a list out will also help to ensure you have all the cleaning materials needed before you get started, saving me tons of time later.

Make a playlist. Listening to music while you clean will help take your mind off of the task at hand. Not many of us associate cleaning with the word "fun," but music does indeed make cleaning a little bit more thrilling.


Get a trash and donate box/bag. As you go through each room, make sure to declutter. Throw away old magazines and papers from the previous year. Put items you no longer use or need, like that book you bought 10 years ago but never read, in the donate box. Once you’re done cleaning your whole house, itemize your donate pile because you may be able to deduct those donations on your taxes.

Work on one room at a time. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you want to clean your entire home all at once. Try writing down all the rooms in your home on a piece of paper and checking each one off as you go. If you can work on a couple rooms each weekend, you’ll get a lot more done and still have free time on the side.


Set an amount of time to work on each room. It's easy to get distracted. Before you know it, you're looking at items you've forgotten or old photographs. Set a timer so you don’t fall into this trap. You can also use the timer to give yourself a little break here and there. Much like a list, it will help you stay on track.

Your car burns gas for energy. It's food for the engine, which­ is what makes the car run. The more work the car has to do, the more energy it needs. It's why large SUVs have worse gas mileage than small cars. The added weight of the SUV makes the car work harder.­

No matter what kind of car you drive, eliminating weight can go a long way toward increasing your car's fuel efficiency. Have a ski or bike rack on your car? Unless you're on your way to a ski trip or bike ride, take it off. That unused rack adds weight and wind resistance. If you're like most people, you probably have some junk in your trunk. Sports equipment, strollers, and gym bags are all hurting your fuel economy. The EPA estimates that for every extra 100 pounds your car caries, it loses 2 percent in fuel economy. By cleaning up your act, you can start on the road to saving.

When test driving a used vehicle, it’s always best to take the car on both local roads and highways. In different environments, you can get a good feel for how the car responds and performs. On local roads, you can feel how the car shifts and responds to sharp turns. You’ll also get a good idea on the condition of the brakes with stop-and-go. With a trip on the highway, you can note if the engine runs smoothly or not. While on a test drive, keep your eyes and ears open. Make sure to note any unusual engine noises and whether or not all of the electronics in the car are working properly.

Vent or “wing” windows were popular in the pre-air conditioning era of automotive manufacturing. They were convenient for many purposes that are still valid today. For example, on days when it’s cool enough to open windows rather than run the A/C, the vent windows allowed air to circulate freely without it streaming in your face or messing up your hair. Smokers also appreciated being able to flick their ashes out the “no-draft” without the fear of them flying back inside the vehicle. Did you have a vehicle with vent windows? What did you think of them?

Did you know that rear-enders are one of the most common types of car accidents? Rear-ending results when one car collides into the back of car in front of it. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, this type of crash accounts for 29 percent of all accidents. A 2007 NHTSA study found that drivers involved in rear-end crashes were “routinely engaged in activities that divert their attention from the forward roadway while driving,” and 64 percent of those involved in rear-end crashes were not looking at the road at the time of the crash.

To help avoid rear-ending another vehicle because of inattention, always pay attention to your surroundings, particularly the street and other vehicles. Make sure your cell phone is safely put away and focus your attention to the road and your speed.

While Thanksgiving may have started out as a religious celebration, over the years it has lost most of its religious significance in American households. Instead of being a day devoted to religious warship it has become a day centered around family, friends, cooking and celebration.

While other traditional foods, like cranberry sauce, stuffing, and pumpkin pie are common in many households, non are consumed as much as Turkey.

In Norway there is a road alongside a 1050-foot Stigfossen waterfall that contains 11 hairpin turns at grades of up to 9 percent. If this wasn't enough to deter the lucid driver, each turn takes you higher and high up the mountain pass until you reach 2,790-feet. Also known as the "Troll's Way" by locals, this dangerous stretch of serpentine road is not one I suggest trying with.

Don't let your vehicle be ill prepared for the fall and winter weather. Check out the tips below to make sure your vehicle stays in proper working order until spring.

1. While it is rare that your vehicles cabin will fill with deadly exhaust fumes, it is also good to have your vehicles exhaust system checked for any problems or leaks. Also, be sure a mechanic checks the vehicles floor boards and trunk for any small holes that could fuel the fumes. 

2.  A major item that can be left unchecked until disaster strikes is your vehicles transmission. Before going off on a long winter road trip, be sure your vehicle has had routine checks and fluid changes at the correct times to prevent any costly damage.  

3. During the fall and winter months, driving along icy roads and in snow can get extremely dangerous. In order to prevent yourself from getting stuck in a tough spot be sure your vehicle is always equipped with an emergency kit which includes: gloves, boots, blankets, flares, a small shovel, sand or kitty litter, tire chains, a flashlight, extra batteries, a cell phone, and an extra car charger. Also it's a good idea to keep a few “high-energy” snacks in your glove box....
