Clean Out Your Closet And Help A Charity

When you clean out your closet (or your whole house), the "donate" pile can get pretty big. But there's no need to worry about lugging everything to a donation centre. Clothesline will send a truck right to your door to pick up your gently used clothing, electronics and small household items for free. The proceeds will go to the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) to support its research, education and advocacy programs.

Each year, Clothesline, a national Canadian program, raises more than $10 million and diverts more than 100 million pounds of clothing and household items from landfill sites across the nation, something else donors feel good about.

The CDA started the program in 1985 as an

 Spots of red in the trees and a slight chill in the air can only mean one thing. It’s time to put away our flip flops and nestle into a new season: Autumn.

So let us help you set the mood for autumn in your home by stimulating all 5 senses:

 

Sight: Invite warm tones into your home decor by accenting your couch with a red pillow or taking out your Thanksgiving accessories a little early. That orange table cloth or classic cornucopia centre piece will create an instant surge

When it comes to selling your home you need to have potential buyers at “Hello”.

You want the first impression of your home to say “Come on in! If you think this looks great, wait until you see the rest!”beautiful-curb-appeal-exterior-design-idea-37798740[1]

The condition of the lawn and landscaping, the driveway, the garden, the windows, garage door and front door can be a deciding factor for a buyer before they even step out of their vehicle. Some buyer’s may not even get out of their vehicle if they don’t find the front of a house appealing. You could have every bell and whistle indoors, but how will they ever know?

Take an objective look at the front of your house. Stand at a distance, perhaps across the street from your home. How does it look? Take a quick snap shot. Take a good like

It's that time of year again, but this year is something a little more special than what we've had in the past..

IT'S CANADA'S 150th BIRTHDAY!

And to celebrate this glorious event, everyone in Canada has been given a 150 pass, which gets you free admission to every national park in the country. However, make sure you're getting out the door as early as possible though. Those parks will fill up fast this year, and I've personally been turned away once already at the Bruce Peninsula National Park. So make it out early!

Spending time in our lovely home of Georgina this weekend? Make sure you stop by the ROC this Saturday, July 1st. They will be hosting so many family friendly activities this year. Canada's own Urban Slide will be propped up and ready for

Remember Baby-Proofing? Welcome to Age-Proofing! More and more people are choosing to stay in their homes after retirement. More and more people are choosing to live out their lives for as long as possible in their own homes. People are living longer, living healthier lives and technology and access to care has made aging at home possible. Living independently is far more desirable than moving to a retirement home.

Aging is a reality for all of us and as fit and active as we are, our physical and home comfort needs do change as we get older. If you’re nearing retirement, have recently retired or perhaps you’re continuing your career longer (lots of people are delaying retirement too!), it’s a good idea to think about some customization of your

It was only a few years ago when Team Peroff had decided to begin a 

crusade to raise food for the Georgina Community Food Pantry. Ever since their first in the Bag food drive, it has become a great success. Twice a year, once in the summer and again in the fall, Team Peroff take 2 weeks out of their schedules to walk the streets of chosen communities throughout Georgina to deliver the iconic brown paper bag with the 'It's in the Bag' flyer attached. This summer will be the 4th semi-annual food drive, and they have chosen to team up with communities in Sutton to help fill the shelves at the Food Pantry. 

Being the Food Pantry's home, Sutton is the perfect area to gather donations. The kind and generous folks of Sutton would be very familiar with

Summer is closing in, hockey and basketball are coming to an end and baseball is in high swing (See what I did there?). Let’s be honest, most guys in this day and age for the most part are pretty big into sports, and they are always looking for a place to unwind and relax while watching their favourite athletes top the competition. So, why not build your significant other a man-cave?

What is a “Man Cave”? In short it’s a little personal space that your guy can claim and personalize. You know his beer-hat collection? He can display it proudly in his space and
not in the living room; Win-win right? All joking aside, everyone needs a little space they can call their own and guys like their

Summer is a time where being outdoors is almost mandatory, especially here in Canada seeing as how we have a 6 month winter to deal with and the warm weather is a luxury. For those of us who constantly look for new things to try, or constantly look for reasons to get outdoors and enjoy the weather, there is always that one easy answer. For myself, well I have numerous answers to get outdoors, but one of my all time favourites, and a lot of folks around the Georgina area, is Fishing!

Whether you are a casual fisherman, or a full blown master angler, there are a few spots around the area that you must check out if you’re looking for a good fight!
