Save Yourself a Trip to IKEA With This Clever Shopping Hack

IKEA stuff is great. But sometimes a trip to IKEA is something less than great. This is especially true in New York, where going to IKEA means taking a subway, then a ferry, crossing a massive parking lot, navigating the labyrinthine pathways of the store itself, and then waiting in a freakishly long line, trying to resist the urge to cut someone while hoping and praying that you’ll get through the line fast enough to catch the ferry before it leaves so that you don’t wind up waiting 45 minutes, in the cold, for the next one to arrive.

12 Home Depot Shopping Secrets That Can Save You Serious Money

If “Let’s do this” brings bright orange to mind, you must be a Home Depot regular like me. I’ve spent more hours of my life (and more dollars) than I care to admit in the aisles of this big box stand-by. There was a stretch – while in the trenches of renovating a big old triplex we bought in Detroit – that the mere scent of Home Depot (a mélange of fresh lumber, hot dogs, paint, chemicals, and desperation) upon walking in would raise my heart rate because I knew it meant our rapidly dwindling funds were about to take another giant hit. (Other people, it turns out, like the smell!)

I made so many trips there, in fact, that when I’d get up in the morning my phone would tell me the traffic situation en route to the nearest Home Depot (I guess it thought I worked there?) Throughout these many trips I’ve learned a few things and am happy to share them with you, my partners in DIY.

Dead Battery? How to Jump Start a Car Like a Pro

You run out of the house already late for work, hop in the car and turn the key in the ignition … only to hear a “click click” noise instead of the comforting hum of the engine. Obviously something’s not right. Is it the battery (easy fix), the alternator (more complicated), or both? Whatever it is, it’s not the end of the world. Take a deep breath, because you got this.

Design Lessons I Know Now that I Wish I Could Share with My Younger Self

My first decorating memory dates back about 20 years or so (the dates are hazy, but the experience is crystal clear.) After some pleading, my mom had granted me the opportunity to redesign my bedroom. I took the job very seriously, sweating over picking just the right shade of bubblegum pink (a risk for this non-pink lover), but it felt right at the time. Weeks of studying the Montgomery Ward catalog resulted in the eventual selection of an oh-so-sophisticated rosebud-printed bed-in-a-bag for my daybed (that was placed on layaway for what felt like an eternity to a pre-teen). Rose-appointed accoutrements were selected to accessorize and style, and a rosevine stencil was laboriously painted along the ceiling line of my bedroom and on the doors of a wall-length shelving unit my great uncle had built me years prior. The result was my childhood masterpiece—an accomplishment that would mold so much of my future without even knowing it.

Downsizing Your Stuff Can Be a Little Less Painful, Here’s How

Colie and her husband’s Minneapolis rental isn’t super tiny — at 781 square feet it’s perfectly adequate for two people. But the place they moved from had more space, 1150 square feet.
