Bathroom storageYou’d be surprised how small of a space you can cram a shower, toilet and sink into. The good news is, with a little creativity, you can create more storage than you think in your fun-sized bathroom.

  1. Baskets

For items that you take to the sink every day – toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, makeup, comb, or whatever it may be – find a cheap, decorative basket to easily stash your essentials wherever they may fit.

Man RelaxingWe all need a break now and then. There is no one among us who can work 14 hours a day, seven days a week and not feel the effects from it. Our lack of sleep affects our health, our mood, and our thinking. Sometimes we are so tired, it is difficult to think straight at work or drive safely to work. We may become irritable with our family and friends. Of course, you may be thinking, working this hard is a necessity of life. And you are right. Many people must work two or three jobs to pay the bills.

Solving EquationWhy US Millennials, Baby Boomers Choose the Apartment Lifestyle

More Americans, of every age and economic bracket, are choosing to live in apartments. They love the convenient, affordable lifestyle that apartments offer much more than the burdens and expenses of home ownership. Baby boomers – typically empty-nesters – and Millennials, those between 18 and 34 years old, are two of the biggest demographic groups renting apartments now, said Angela Sweet, Director of Destination Services for CORT.

ApartmentsAn apartment is more than just a cost-effective housing option. It is more than what people who cannot afford to purchase a home rely on. It is more than just a place to call home during college or an extended business relocation. An apartment is a reflection of you – it is your home. It is the place that you have chosen to live because of the amenities and lifestyle it provides you.

Apartments Offer Variety

There are hundreds – if not thousands – of different options that you can choose from that make an apartment more than just four walls. If you want a view of nature, such as trees or a lake, there are apartments for you. If you need or want to live in the ground floor, there are a myriad of apartment homes available to you. If you prefer to live on the top floor of a building in order to cut down the noise and have a great view, you can have that. If you want to live in a community that has complimentary tennis courts, they are out there. The options for the place you will call home are virtually endless.

Summer Pet CareNow that summer has officially started, we can look forward to pool parties, barbeques, and all the other festivities that come with season. While we spend long days in the sunny outdoors with furry friends, it’s important to remember hot temperatures mean different pet care practices. Here are a few of major pet considerations:

Keep Pets Hydrated

Hot temperatures can cause pets to get dehydrated very quickly. In order to avoid dehydration, make sure all outdoor pets have plenty of fresh, clean water. It’s also important to ensure there is plenty of shade so your pets can get out of the sun during especially hot days. Additionally, be careful of overheating your pet through excessive exercise outside.

Apartment LivingWhat do you love about living in your apartment? Many of us love where we live because of its great location near our jobs, schools, family and friends. Many of us love our apartment because it is our home, where we enjoy our free time and create memories with our family and friends. Many of us love our apartment because of the community in which we live, from the great neighbors to the large pool to the friendly leasing staff.

While there are many obvious benefits of living in apartments, some of the greatest side perks are less well known.

Millennial Renter The Millennial generation – those who are currently 18 to 34 years old – are choosing to rent apartments rather than buy homes. In fact, a new report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University found that people aged 25 to 34 years old are putting off buying homes for several reasons, including college debt. But financial concerns are only a small factor in many Millennials’ decision to rent apartments. Many simply prefer the lifestyle that renting an apartment affords them over home ownership.
