If you're getting ready to move, whether you are trying to sell your home or you've already purchased a new one, one of the first things that tends to cause stress in the process is the fear of packing all your stuff. Whether you've been in your current space for a few months or several years, you've probably accumulated plenty of things you use and love, and even more items you haven't touch since you brought them home. Now is the perfect time to purge those items and start fresh in your new home with intentional decor and less clutter. Here are some of the things you will save when you let them go.


Save Time


Instead of waiting until you are ready to move, start sorting through your items now. Sell, donate, or trash the items that you have decided don't have a place in your future home. When you're readt to pack up for your move, you'll save so much time because you will have less to pack( and unpack).


Save Money


Maybe some of the stuff you're considering letting go of is worth something. If that is the case consider having a garage sale or selling your clothes to resale boutiques in your area. Donate or dispose of whatever you don't sell. Not only can you make money, but you can save money by moving less stuff. You may be able to fit what you love into a smaller moving truck if you get rid of those items that have gone unused for years!


Save Energy


Sometimes items can take up a graet deal of emotional energy. It is often in our nature to cling to things that may have meant something in our past, but have no place in our future. Get rid of that baggage and create an intentional environment with positive energy in your new home.


Save Space


Instead of taking the clutter from your current place into your new home, save space by getting rid of it now. Open spaces in your new home will bring you peace of mind and joy.

 Your roof is a critical part of your home. Protecting you from the elements all year round, your roof takes the brunt of any weather that comes through your town. That exposure every single day can lead to wear and tear, and sometimes that can lead to issues that need repair. It isn't always obvious when your roof needs a fix, but here are some indicators that it may be time to call a roofer!



1. It looks Worn



It might seem obvious, but if your roof looks bad, that might indicate it needs a repair. When your shingles appear damp and worn, it means they're holding moisture and no longer fully able to do their job. If the shingles are cracked or curling up at the corners, they are at a point that they may fall out and will need to be fixed or replaced.



2. You Have A Leak


Do you have any ceiling wet stains? Though you may not notice them at first, wet spots can be the first indicator that precipitations are leaking through your roof! You will want to get this fixed as soon as you notice it to prevent further water damage to your house interior.



3. The Roof Is Sagging


The roof isn't in a straight line, it is sagging. This means it is definately time to call a roofing company because serious structural damage can occur if sagging is not remedied.



4. You Can See The Light


This is the one time you do not want to see the light- and that is when you are looking up at your roof. If light can penetrate your roof, so can plenty of other things. If you have any light leaks, get the cracl filled as soon as possible.
