10 Important Things to Consider Before Designing a New Kitchen

Here are 10 important guidelines for your kitchen design project. 1.

Selling Your Home on Your Own?

If you have Tampa Bay Florida real estate, Pinellas County real estate or Clearwater property and are looking to put your home up for sale, you have a thousand questions that you need to ask yourself. The first question you need to ask is do you need to use a real estate agent, or can you sell your home on your own? Unless you have experience in selling homes, or have sold your own home before and know what you are getting yourself into, you should hire a professional real estate agent. The business of selling homes is quite intricate, there is a lot of legal paperwork to fill out, a lot of questions and answers that if you answer them incorrectly can cost you thousands of dollars, which is far more money than you would have 'spent' on a real estate agent.

Causes of Stress

Of course, there are many causes of stress and they are as varied as the people who suffer from stress, but there are a few places to look first. And by learning about these causes of stress, you can figure out where stress is entering your life. One of the most common, and most complained about, causes of stress is work. However, it is not only the day-to-day tasks and routine pressures of work that can lead to stress. In fact, the mere concern about keeping a job can be a source of stress.

Identity Theft - the 10 Best Tips You Can Use Right Now!

We've all heard horror stories about fraud that's committed by someone stealing a name, address, Social Security number or credit card. Here are 10 suggestions you can take to help protect yourself.   1. The next time you order checks, have only your initials (instead of your first name) and last name put on them. If someone takes your checkbook, they won't know if you sign your checks with just your initials or your first name, but your bank will know how you sign your checks.  2. When you are writing checks to pay your credit card accounts, DO NOT put the complete account number on the "For" line. Instead, just put the last four numbers. The credit card company knows the rest of the number, and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all the check processing channels won't have access to it.  3. Put your work phone number on your checks instead of your home phone. If you have a PO Box, use that instead of your home address. If you don
