Texas is a large state with so many different landscapes, cities, and fantastic things to do, but if you’re planning on raising your young family in Texas, continue reading to learn about a few of the top cities in the state for doing so.

Austin

The state capital, Austin, is one of the best places where you can plant some roots to raise your family. There are plenty of jobs to be found in the area, as well as loads of recreational activities that you can do as a family to bond with one another and keep busy. The area is called the live music capital of the world, and it’s a place where you can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, including boating, swimming, biking, hiking, and more in the many lakes and parks. There are plenty of homes for sale in Austin for families of all sizes, so hiring a realtor will help you find the prefect abode.

Frisco

Frisco is quickly becoming one of the biggest and best cities in the state. The school system there is one of the fastest growing districts in Texas, and it has been honored as one of the best, so if you’re hoping to send your kids to a fantastic school, this city could be the ideal choice. Over the last decade, the city’s population has grown substantially, and income has also grown. Plus, if you move there, you’ll only be about a half hour away from Dallas.

Sugarland

Yet another great place where you can raise your family in Texas is Sugarland. There are plenty of job opportunities in this Houston suburb, which happens to be the home of a Texas Instruments facility and the headquarters for the Minute Maid brand. This city has also ranked as one of the safest cities in the state, and you can expect to find an exceptional school district there that allows the children of its growing community to succeed.

Friendswood

If you’re seeking a place like Frisco but on the more affordable end of the spectrum, look no further than Friendswood. A strong school system and a high rate of income growth make this a great choice to raise your young family. This city is yet another Houston suburb that’s quiet, yet keeps you close to all of the job opportunities that Houston has to offer.

Plano

Plano has also ranked high when it comes to finding places to live and raise a family in the United States. This Dallas suburb will provide your kids with a high quality education, thanks to the excellent school system, and there are also many corporations that have their headquarters in this fantastic part of the state. Those companies include Dr. Pepper, Cinemark, and Snapple, so you’ll be able to find a lot of employment opportunities to make the income you require to give your family what they

need. Plus, Plano has been ranked one of the safest cities in the country, making it even more desirable.

Consider the cities above if you’re planning a move to Texas to raise your growing family.

Reviewing the Best NordicTrack Treadmill Product

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

The NordicTrack FS7i Freestride Trainer is the one of the latest and appealing models from the NordicTrack Treadmills. Considered as the most affordable models, it is known for its stepper, treadmill and elliptical featured model. Let us now review this product on why it is the most preferred treadmill:

Best Designs: Both Treadmills and Elliptical are designed with specific height of 20″ to 22″. The design offers variable motion closely matching the natural running stride. This is one of the perks offered by the FreeStride.

Power Incline: With the power incline feature, the ergonomically design offers adjustable to 10 degrees. In seconds, the machine allows the user to switch from 10 degrees to short stride and stepping motion to target quads and calves. The user can adjust the incline and get the perfect grip for workout.

Easy Assembly: Very few treadmills come with quick assembly feature allowing the user to start the exercise within few minutes. With NordicTrack freestride trainer FS7i, you can assemble the machine within 10 minutes and conduct the workout for hours.

Low Impact: Many treadmills come with belts that move over rails, but this product comes with pedals that move over belts. This is to promote the “walking on air”. This feature allows the user to avoid injury.

iFit Enabled: The console’s color touchscreen allows the user to manage the daily exercise. The app also allows the user to experience the route that set in Google Maps, automatically creating the chart of fitness activity. This feature helps the user to manage the mind and body.

Entertainment Options: Though the machine doesn’t have second scree, it does have some entertainment options. The user can connect the iPod or MP3 player to the console and listen to the favourite music while working out. This is the best way to enjoy the workout.

Set-A-Goal Workout: While working out, it is important to setup the goal allowing the user to set the target for workout duration, number of calories burned and others. This is highly essential to get the best result.

Apart from these, the treadmill also has other features like Transport Wheels, High Capacity, Wireless Receiver, Web Console and few others. Overall this model from NordicTrack Treadmill is considered as the top product offering easy treadmill exercise experience. However, the price of this machine could be more compared to other machines. The machine comes along with the user manual helping in understanding every step involved. However, there are certain wires that need to be assembled to get started with. Compatible and small in size, the product can be placed anywhere in the house. This Hybrid Treadmill has overall 35 in-built programs. So buy this product now and get started with the exercise.

7 Great Tips to Organize Kids’ Rooms

7 Great Tips to Organize Kids’ Rooms

tpankuch.com 6-7-tips-organise-rooms

One of the biggest headaches that all parents have to go through is getting their kids’ rooms organized. It would seem that no amount of yelling and “clean your room!” commands can ever really get the job done. Fortunately, there are certain things that you can do to help address this concern. Here are 7 great tips to help you organize your children’s toys:

1.       Look at Your Kid’s Room from His or Her Vantage Point 

Our viewpoint is not necessarily the same as how our kids see things. Sometimes it pays to go down to their eye level and look at whether they see their room as being a mess and full of clutter or not. At a level of around 3 feet off the floor, you will be amazed at how different the room actually looks than if you were to see it 5 or 6 feet up. So, before yelling at your kids, try to sit down and look at the room and see what they see. This also means you have to tailor your approach of organizing the room to the level of your child. 

2.       Encourage Your Kid to Help You Organize His or Her Room 

Children don’t necessarily understand what you mean by cleaning and organizing their room. You have to show them how. This is all a part of the learning process. In order for them to value the idea of keeping things organized, you need to encourage them to join you in cleaning and organizing their rooms. This is the only way you can help instill the habit of cleaning and tidying up their room especially after playing. 

3.       Sort and Simplify 

Sometimes you do need to simplify things a bit. Most children’s rooms are small and thus can appear chaotic. You can start by determining which of your kid’s clothes need to go and which ones can still be used. You can enlist the help of your kid in this aspect. Try to sort things out and determine which items need to go and which ones can still be of use.  

4.       Use Colorful Containers 

To help you organize your kid’s room, you will have to be creative in the use of containers to organize his or her things and before you store them away. Let your child help you in decorating his or her containers so that he or she will be more than happy to use them. This helps foster a sense of accomplishment in kids. 

5.       Organize Often-Used Items 

Make sure to put items that your kid often uses in lower areas of the storage cabinet. Store seldom-used items in higher areas. The point is that you would want your kid to still be able to have full access to those things and toys that he or she values the most. Storing them in an area that is readily accessible will help encourage your kid to keep his or her things tidy after use.

6.       Label Items 

It may sound simple enough but a lot of parents forget to label their containers. You can also ask your kid to make the labels himself or herself so that it becomes more personalized. This way, you don’t have to fret about where to put a particular item away. This expands your kid’s vocabulary, too. 

7.       Schedule a Maintenance Routine  

Create a maintenance schedule with your kid. For example, you might agree to clean up his or her room every Saturday morning then follow this up with an ice cream treat or anything that will reward your kid for keeping with his or her routine. The point is to make room cleaning a healthy habit.

Getting your kid’s room organized is best accomplished with the help of your kid. Make sure they learn this by heart so they stay organized in all things they do. For some great toy storage ideas you may want to read 14 Best Toy Storage Boxes.

Rekindle the Spark With Your Home

Rekindle the Spark With Your Home
When you bought your home, it was the perfect one. Now though, when you compare it to the pictures in the magazines and on the television shows, your home may no longer feel so exciting. Don’t reach for the real estate adds just yet. Maybe all you and your home need is a sharp, new paint job in adventurous colors, or a little remodeling project from a company like Accurate Contractor Services.

Adventurous Painting
Keep in mind a few general principals when choosing your colors and designs. Light colors, and cool colors like violets, blues, and greens, appear to recede from the eye. Consequently, they make rooms and objects appear larger. Dark colors, and warm colors like reds, oranges, and yellows, appear to advance. They make rooms and objects look smaller.

Psychologically, cool colors tend to be soothing and cause people to relax. Energetic warm colors encourage activity and interaction. Diagonal lines also encourage activity while curved lines calm and sooth. Horizontal stripes or horizontal rectangles make narrow walls appear longer, while vertical stripes or rectangles make a long wall appear shorter. Vertical designs also make a low ceiling feel higher. Painting stripes on a floor can make an entire room look wider.

Placing painter’s tape around the edge of your design before painting keeps edges sharp. Use poster paper to create templates for various shapes, and then carefully measure to make sure it is where you want it on the wall before lightly marking it’s position or taping around it.

Create the trompe l’oeil illusion of molded panels by framing a smaller rectangle of a darker color with one or two progressively lighter colors. The colors you use don’t actually have to be dark or light. The framing colors just need to be lighter than the center color.

Remodeling Projects
Remodeling projects do not necessarily have to be major projects. You can give your kitchen a fresh style by changing or painting the doors on the cabinets, changing the splashback, or even by changing the door handles. You can change the look and style of other rooms by changing the globe on the ceiling fixture or by exchanging a ceiling light for a fan or a chandelier. Even changing the look of your bathroom is relatively quick and inexpensive with a bathtub liner.

Try these ideas to rekindle the spark with your home.

Publicizing school events:

I love volunteering for school events. It keeps me connected with my kids, and I truly enjoy the company of the other parent volunteers. But when we work on posters and flyers, cutting out the letters, gluing, pasting, cleaning up the scraps… I’m not gonna lie, it’s a lot of work, gets pretty messy, and yeah – it’s EXHAUSTING. One afternoon, after my hand cramped for the umpteenth time, I stepped away from the School Fair poster I had been working on.

While I was enjoying my “break,” I decided to check my email. The DIY gods were on my side or something, but my my sister-in-law happened to email me some info about a site called PosterMyWall! So I clicked on the link, and… OH EM GEE. I had found my poster-making BFF!

The site offered all these awesome templates, including a category for school templates. Winning! I ditched the paper version I was working on, and using the site’s online tools (we’re talking backgrounds, images, filters, etc.), I made a new poster in minutes!!!

I shared my new masterpiece with the committee I was currently working with, and we decided to order a test poster. Our 24×36″ poster shipped pretty quickly, and we loved it so much, we also ordered the digital download to upload to the school’s website. If you wanna see what other products PosterMyWall offers, check out this page: http://www.postermywall.com/index.php/g/classroom-posters

So if you enjoy DIY projects but want an easier, quicker and less-messy alternative, check out PosterMyWall. User-friendly and budget-friendly, it may just become your new BFF too!

Advertising for fundraisers:

I love fundraisers and volunteering for fundraising committees. But these days, even the seconds are full, thanks to two toddlers, a full-time job, and the occasional urge to enjoy some “me” time. I needed a quicker way to market upcoming fundraising events, because DIY projects a la Pinterest are fun, but they take TIME. And boy oh boy, time is of the essence these days.

One afternoon, as I took a quick breather from errands, I turned to Google for a little help. During my search, I discovered PosterMyWall! After taking a “tour” of their site, I found a variety of templates that I could use to advertise my upcoming events. WOOHOO!!! I finally found a way to create some pretty cool posters and flyers that didn’t require too much time or super duper artistic talent.

Even better, PostelrMyWall offers prints and downloads. So depending on how quickly I need something, I can either order flyers (even double-sided ones, yes!) or digital files. And I can upload the digital copy to websites and Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter!!! (If you want to know what else PosterMyWall offers, check out this page). http://www.postermywall.com/index.php/p/fundraising-posters
