Save Time & Be Consistent with Bowflex

There’s several different ways to get a workout in, but the most important method is a consistent method. I’ve talked about my conversion to eat smart through my use of the P90X3 workout, but I realize not everyone wants a home workout with just some dumbbells and a pull-up bar. Growing up, my parents had a little all-in-one home gym workout machine that I used to use to strength train for sports. I didn’t know about the power of home video exercise tapes and quite frankly I wanted to feel like I was actually moving some weight around! It’s why when you go to a gym you find exercise equipment and machines. You don’t need a treadmill or stair climber to get a run in, but based on your location and living situation they might be your best option for working out. That’s why I still believe a company like Bowflex has a position in the market and can help you save time when working out.

Support Local Chocolatiers with Chocolate.org

As a Paleo eating, workout crazed health nut, desserts and sweets are typically never on my list of needs or wants. However, that doesn’t mean my family or friends want to avoid sweets like the plague. It’s always good to have a few different companies in your back pocket that you can reliably find a treat regardless of the occasion. You can even get treats last minute shipped to you to ensure you have something. Chocolate.org always has pricing and shipping discounts with a variety of products from local chocolatiers.

Add Living Space Personality With Art.com

Not everyone wants to take the time, or has the creativity, to create their own personal wall art. I’ve always believed that the artwork, colors and rooms in which you decorate make statements about you as a person. It’s as if you can take a glimpse into someone’s life just by walking into their house, seeing what’s up on their walls and what they’re willing to showcase. Before, when I lived with my parents, it was easy to decorate my room because it just all flowed into one melting pot. When I bought my house however, now it seemed each room represented something different and yet I wanted them to flow from one to the other regardless of the time of year. I realize this might be more time or thought than what someone else might put into how their house is decorated, but the point is it doesn’t matter. Regardless of if you’re looking for the perfect painting, or just want something to cover the wall, Art.com is a great resource to peruse on a weekend or leverage for future decorating ideas.

More Project Time, Less Shopping Time: Home Depot

Ever since I bought my own house, I’ve found I spend a lot more time in the home improvement stores than I previously did. Growing up, I was never the most hands on person around the house. In fact, I probably caused more messes and wrecks than I ever learned how to put them back together. For me, there’s something about owning something yourself that makes you take ownership of your things. Since I’ve had my house I’ve learned all about gardening, changing light fixtures, HVAC systems, toilets, plumbing and the art of painting. For whatever reason, I was much more willing to help out, and learn, in the kitchen then I ever was with every day home repair. When I started making two and three trips a day to the home improvement store I knew I needed a way to cut down on my trips and time searching the store. Fortunately for me, when I discovered that Home Depot did in-store pickup, I instantly started thinking of the store as a resource, not a pain in my neck. Learn how you can save time on your trips on all your home improvement needs too.
