Written by Family Photos. Posted in Best home organization products, Craft organizer, Craft room furniture ideas

From apartment organization to craft storage organization, finding the perfect organizational system can be a difficult one. For those who have more severely limited space in which to store their belongings, finding an organizational system that works can be more than trying and can even feel like an impossibility for many. And the typical person living here in the United States has more belongings and important possessions now than ever before. In fact, it is estimated that there are as many as three hundred thousand objects in the typical household – and sometimes there are even more. And even though the size of the typical home in the United States has not only doubled but tripled over the course of the last fifty years, it can still be difficult to find a way to organize and contain all of your belongings in a system that works for you – as well as for all of the other members of your household.
Putting some items into storage or even donating them can be incredibly helpful.

Written by Family Photos. Posted in Commercial playground slides, Plastic tire swing, Swing set hardware

From pour in place rubber to a playground swing seat, there are many components to making a playground an inviting place for children to be. All of these components like the pour in place rubber not only help to cultivate a safe environment, but one in which children are free to explore and stretch the boundaries of not only their physical bodies but of their imaginations as well. After all, physical play is hugely important for children of all ages (but particularly very young children) and can help to promote brain development as well as a strong and healthy physical body.
Unfortunately, technology is all too often taking the place of physical play in the lives of many children from many different backgrounds all around the country. While technology is important and can certainly be used as a tool to promote growth, entertainment, and imagination in children of all ages, it is a tool that should be used sparingly. For many parents, too much dependence on technology is a growing

Giving to charity is popular in the United States. In fact, as much as seventy percent of the entire population will give to at least one charity before the year draws to a close and nearly five percent of our collective incomes is spent on charitable causes. But giving back to your community can be difficult if you do not have a lot of free money to spend, and this can be challenging for those who want to make a difference but are struggling in figuring out how to do so. Fortunately, there are options. Making a Red Cross clothes donation is one such option, as it is all too likely that any given Red Cross clothes donation will be very much needed. To donate clothing is something that doesn’t cost you anything, and clothing donations are often beneficial to the person donating as well as to whoever receives the clothing as well, such as is the case in a Red Cross clothes donation given to a Red Cross donation center or even a Red Cross clothes pick up location.

This was the decade that Amish furniture and structures like the Amish garden shed and Amish wooden dining room tables first became popular with the mainstream, when their quality was first realized in the midst of the American folk art movement. Amish furniture has remained popular ever since, and is consumed by people all throughout the entirety of the country – and even in some places abroad as well.

Every year, Americans buy about 20 billion pieces of clothing. That’s 68 articles of clothing and seven pairs of shoes for each person. When we’re done with them, they tend to sit in the back of our closets and then eventually get thrown away. The EPA estimates that we throw away about 10 pounds worth of clothing per person per year. Here’s why that’s bad and why you should be thinking about a Red Cross pickup instead.

Throwing Clothes Away Is Bad for the Environment

Almost nothing you can do with your old clothes is a worse choice than throwing them away. When you toss them in the trash they end up at landfills. There, they slowly fall lower in the pile. As they do, they end up deep where there is no oxygen. Without oxygen, even clothes made of natural fibers cannot degrade properly. They let off dangerous greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming and pollution. If you donate clothes instead, you’re doing a huge favor to the environment.
