Ditch Your Digital Clutter With These Tips

At some point, you will probably find that much of your digital clutter is overwhelming you. This is something that eventually happens to everyone, but you can use home organization in your apartment in our apartment community to your advantage. As a result, you can organize all of your files and other items that are stored digitally.

  • Delete any apps on your devices that you never use or that you haven’t used in a long time. It’s easy to do this on your smartphone or tablet, but you can also do it on your computer. On a Mac, organize apps by the last date they were opened. On a Windows computer, check the info on the app to view the date.
  • If you use Outlook email, you can use Outlook’s Sweep feature to delete outdated email messages. This will also get rid of any unopened emails that are more than 10 days old.
  • On a Mac, use the Finder feature to delete drafts. It will quickly scan your entire system and pick up anything on the hard drive. Delete any that are over a year old.

5 Random Things You Can Do That Will Improve Life at Home

We all want our lives to be easier and more rewarding. In order to make things go smoothly for you and your family, check out these five apartment living tips which are little things which will make a big difference.

1. Let the sunshine in. Opening the windows allows air to circulate. In the evening when the air is cooler, open the windows and enjoy a little bit of nature.

2. Get rid of spam. Junk mail in hard copy form or on your computer is wasteful marketing. Cancel unwanted catalogs, unsubscribe from form emails and clear the clutter from your inbox and mailbox.

3. Save your data. Backing up your computer every month is a quick thing which can prevent a huge headache later on. A small external hard drive can quickly convert your files to a storage space which will cover you in case of any crashes.

4. Purge the kitchen. Dull knives, chipped glassware and old spices are lurking in your kitchen. Sharpen knives, invest in new glasses and purge the back of the cabinets.

5. A place for everything. Set up your entryway with a place for mail, keys, shoes and jackets. Add an out box of all the things you want to toss, have to mail and need to take with you on your way out the door. This little box can help you start they day on the right foot.

5 Design Ideas That Every Apartment Dweller Should Keep in Mind

Just because your renting your home doesn’t mean you can’t make it your own. Here are five design ideas that every apartment dweller should keep in mind when decorating your home.

  • You Don’t Have to Paint: Just because you can’t paint your walls doesn’t mean you are out of options. Oversized art is a great way to cover up a plain beige wall.
  • You Can Add Color With Furniture: Instead of painting the walls, try adding a splash of color with furniture. A brightly colored couch can be the focal point for a living room.
  • Use Plants to Hide Things: If there’s an element in your apartment that you don’t like, use a cleverly placed plant to hide it.
  • You Don’t Have to Hate Your Floor: If your kitchen or bathroom floor is hateful, it doesn’t have to be the bane of your existence. A large area rug can easily cover up that eye sore.
  • Make Use of Window Treatments: You can add color and style to your home with the perfect window treatments.

5 Hosting Mistakes to Avoid When You Have Guests

Avoid making these hosting mistakes when you have guests over for your holiday party.

  • Never Expect Guests to Help Themselves to Food & Drink – Make sure everything is in plain sight because most people feel uncomfortable hunting around in your fridge or cupboards.
  • Plan Your Music – You do not have to have knowledge of the latest tunes, but do have something playing when guests arrive. The background noise provides comfort during introduction phases.
  • Guests Cannot Introduce Themselves – Where many people do not know each other, do not leave them to their own devices. Introduce people to each other instead of people wandering around on their own.
  • Do Not Do Everything On Your Own – Hosting is more than a one-person job no matter how prepared you think you are. Get family and friends to help by giving them tasks.
  • Not Everyone Needs to be Seated – Most people prefer to be on their feet during a party. Provide some chairs as conversation pieces.

Our apartments feature amenities like a 24-hour lock-out service, out-of-town services and package accepting. Visit our leasing office to schedule a tour or contact us for opulent apartment living options.

sport-1685855_640

We all want to look great, feel good and have a better self-perception of our body. Because if you work hard and eat right, then you though see the fruits of your labor.

Our fitness center is well equipped for individual success in all fitness arenas. If you’re looking at the fitness equipment and you just can’t get inspired, have you ever tried working out with an exercise ball? You may think that’s just all hot air, but actually working out on an exercise ball is pretty challenging. Here are three of the best ab workouts to do with an exercise ball.

Plank push-ups: With your hands on the ground and your feet on ball you do pushups. It’s a lot harder than it sounds and is a great workout for your abs, as well as your chest, deltoids and triceps.

Sit ups: Doing sit ups while sitting on the ball with your feet on the floor is also another excellent ab workout for your ball sessions.

Crunch curls: This third exercise is a monster. You lie flat with your arms spread apart and weights in your hands. Then you bring the weights together as you rise towards where your hands meet.

All three of these are excellent ab workouts for your exercise ball routine.
