How to Organize and Conduct a Neighborhood Cleanup

Take a look around your neighborhood – do you see any litter on the sidewalks? What about in the grass?

Things to Know Before Renting Your Home on Airbnb

Housing prices are increasing quickly in many areas of the country, and interest rates are on the rise. That might challenge your ability to afford a mortgage.

How well do you know your TV living rooms?

We all have those television shows we’ve binge-watched episode after episode, rerun after rerun, for as long as they’ve aired and in the years after. Many of those shows took place inside of a family’s home with the living room area as the most popular focal point of the set, and many of them are as familiar to us as our own living rooms. For example, at first glance, most people are able to immediately recognize the white couch and curved stairway that stood behind it from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air or the floral and bamboo couches displayed in the living area of Golden Girls.
