Let me clear something up pretty quickly, lest you read the title of this post and think that I’m attempting to make an announcement. I AM NOT! I have a few friends who are gearing up to have a new baby, and it got me thinking – I thought it would be a great time to revisit the basics!
Bringing a newborn baby home from the hospital is a pretty exciting, but stressful event. Especially, if this is your first baby. Lucky for you, there is tons of information online on how to prepare your home for a new baby. When it comes down to it, there’s really just four main areas you need to focus on to get your home ready and they are, diapers, clothing, nursery, and car. Let’s dive into each one.
When it comes to changing baby, there are a few things that you’ll need to prep before bringing her home. First, are the supplies. You’ll want to make sure that you have at least one box of newborn diapers, one box of size 1 diapers and a few boxes of wipes. Yes, you’re going to do some damage at Costco.
Summer is just a few weeks away and during the winter and spring seasons, your home’s interior and exterior have taken a beating. From dingy and damaged siding to dusty windows and an overworked HVAC system, there’s a lot that needs to be done. Now that the temperatures are right, it’s time to get up and restore your home. (And if you’re in Florida, like we are, that means getting it all done and squared away before a hurricane bears down upon us!) So, when it comes to tackling a long list of home maintenance projects, here are a few you don’t want to overlook:
With the summer comes hot and hazy days. If you have a central air conditioning system, now is the time to have it serviced. You don’t want to wait until the temperatures are high to find out that your system isn’t working properly. Checking hoses and fans, as well as cleaning vents and hoses, is crucial to ensuring your air conditioner is as efficient as possible when you need it most.
Call the Exterminator
Insects and pests tend to go into hiding when the weather is cold and unpredictable. The warm weather, however, will draw them back out. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to spot ants, spiders, mice, or cockroaches in the summer. To prevent an infestation, you’ll need to hire local pest control services. Companies like Moxie Pest Control, an exterminator Tucson residents love, offers safe methods for getting rid of and preventing the common household pest from entering your house.
