Moving house without a hand truck – or a dolly – is like riding a bicycle without a seat. It’s technically possible, but honestly, who does that?

But they’re not as easy to use as they look, provided you are using them in the proper way. With that in mind, here are tips compiled by moving pros as to how to optimize that hand truck you found in the back of your moving truck, or that one your friend let you borrow and you don’t want to return broken.

When it comes to selling your home, it’s all about making that good online impression. The only way to get serious buyers to physically see your home in person is to hook them online. And honestly, the quickest way to do that is with some amazing real estate photography!
But let’s be real – hiring a professional photographer isn’t always in the budget. If you’re looking to save money by snapping your own pics, then we’ve got some great tips for you to keep in mind when you’re roaming your place, camera in hand.

Every year during the month of February, my husband and I participate in what we lovingly refer to as “Frugal February.”
Essentially the concept is to save as much money as possible during the shortest month of the year. That means no eating dinners out, no morning coffee runs, no clothing shopping, no cab rides. We’re certainly not perfect, but we try our very best.
And that isn’t always easy when you live in a big city. The cost of living is pretty high and it can be difficult to save a ton of money. But we’ve learned a heck of a lot over the years and have some tips to share with you. We know some of these ideas should help you put a few more pennies in your bank account this year, just like they did us.
