How to Organize Your Refrigerator 

Leftovers gobbling up space in your refrigerator? Here are some tips for keeping things organized, efficient, and tasty.

Dreaming of a clean refrigerator, but not sure how to organize? We’ve got some cool ideas.

Front and center

Give prime fridge space to priority items, says professional organizer Kathi Burns, founder of Add Space to Your Life. 

“If you want leftovers to be eaten, keep them front and center on the middle rack, at eye level,” says Burns. “That goes for healthy snacks, too. If you have leftovers, don’t cram them in the back.”

9 Ways To Avoid Gobbling Up Energy on Thanksgiving 

Wasting energy on Thanksgiving? Don’t be a turkey. 

A few days before Thanksgiving

1. Install a dimmer switch for the dining room chandelier. Every time you dim a bulb’s brightness by 10%, you’ll double the bulb’s lifespan. Most CFLs don’t work with dimmers, but you can create mood lighting with incandescents and LEDs. The dimmer switch will cost you about $10.

2. Plan side dishes that can cook simultaneously with the turkey. If you cook dishes at the same temperature at the same time, you’ll reduce the amount of time the oven has to be running — it’s easier for the cook and saves energy, too.

When you start cooking

3. Lower your house thermostat a few degrees. The oven will keep the house warm.

The Cascade Team is happy to announce its 3D Walkthrough feature that utilizes Matterport’s 3D technology and cloud services and that will be offered for all Cascade Team agent-listed homes for sale.

Just imagine being able to immerse yourself in a location at any time from any place – and experiencing it as though you were there – just what 3D media provides.

In real estate the images have to be great, so the bar for visual quality was set very high from the start. Real estate listings can sink or swim on the quality of visual media. If a 3D photo didn’t capture the essence of the house or if 3D images were dim or distorted, it could make a listing even worse. The Cascade Team quickly realized that this new technology wasn’t about being a 3D

If you're saving for a home while prices are rising, why not let the market help you?

 

It's great to save up for a large down payment of 20% or more. Yet, when prices are on the rise, saving quickly enough to keep pace can be extremely difficult.

 

In times such as these, why not let the market build equity for you instead? Owning a home in an appreciating market can build equity faster than most people can save. For example, a $200,000 home that appreciates by 6% gains $1,000 per month in equity.

 

What are the benefits of buying now?

 

Getting ahead of rising prices and rates. Purchasing with a small down payment often means you're required to purchase mortgage insurance (MI or PMI for Private MI). Your total
