You’ve cleaned your apartment from top to bottom more than once. Maybe you were moving into your new TriBridge apartment or preparing for a change of season. You might have organized the house to prepare for your holiday visitors.
Whatever your reason for reorganizing your apartment, you probably found different items that you do not need. It is easy to determine what you can do with clothing that you can no longer wear. You could throw them away or donate them to a local charity. But what do you do with electronics that you no longer need, or smaller items like cell phones, eye glasses, and other items.
Electronics can be turned in to recycle centers. Apartment Living gives other suggestions for old furniture and eyeglasses. Apparently, the Lions Club accepts eyeglasses as a donation. Old Furniture can be donated to your local Goodwill or Salvation Army. Your local ASPCA always needs leashes, water bowls, and other pet supplies. Items like bridesmaid dresses and formal dresses can be donated to other charities. Search charities close to your TriBridge Residential apartment and learn what you can donate.

Now that you’ve winterized your apartment and stored your summer patio items, prepare your patio or balcony for fall enjoyment. Until the weather becomes too cool, you can still entertain throughout your entire apartment.
This past weekend, I grilled some chicken and potatoes on my patio grill. During the prior weekend I grilled chicken and beef polish sausages. Two weeks ago I grilled steak and vegetables. Now that the weather is cool, I find the need to entertain more often. Of course, entertaining on your patio require more than food. It also requires the proper setting.
Home and Garden Ideas suggest that you add fall colors with your plant pots and furniture covers. It also suggests that you place a pumpkin and a small plant filled wheelbarrow on your patio. Design 2 Share suggests purchasing a patio heater that looks like a lamp or a fireplace. It also suggests adding light to your patio since daylight does not last as long during the fall. Will you spend time on your patio this fall?

TriBridge Residential Community events and activities
I almost walked out of my apartment this morning without emptying the trash. I thought about the smell that I could walk into this evening. I turned around and emptied both my kitchen trash can and my bathroom trash can.
Simple things can cause your apartment to have an odor. If you have pets, they might need a bath with a fresh smelling shampoo. If you cooked eggs, chicken, or any other meat, take out the trash that contains the meat wrapper. If your feet become sweaty and your shoes have an odor, try leaving them outside for the first hour that you come home. Then sprinkle some powder in them and bring them inside. These tips might keep odors out of your TriBridge apartment.
If you already have a distinct odor in your apartment, try assessing the cause. Take out the trash and clean the garbage disposal by dropping a few ice cubes into it with a couple of drops of lemon. If this doesn’t help, check your shoes, your dirty clothes, your carpet, or your pet. Baking Soda can help keep your refrigerator from holding bad odors. It works well if you clean your refrigerator once a month.
Do you have any tips for keeping bad odors out of your apartment?

Although most people do not consider southern winters as true winters, temperatures get pretty cold from November through February. The coldest weather occurs during January and February. I didn’t expect the cool air until late October, but we are feeling it in certain cities in the South. Right now, the breezes are nice.
If you like to save money and stay warm during the cooler months of the year, I have a few tips for you. Last year, I covered my windows with durable plastic. The process is easy and everything you need is explained on the window kit package. Visit Wal-Mart, Lowes, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware to find these window kits. Another way to save energy and increase heat requires reversing your ceiling fans and closing air vents to rooms you do not use. If you have a guest room but no guest, close the vents in that room.
MovingToday also suggest testing your smoke detector for safety reasons. You should also know proper procedures for your gas or wood fireplace before using it. I have one more tip for you; I have a door dog for my interior and outer doors. It is a foam filled cloth that blocks the cool air from entering a room and the warm air from escaping a room. Have a warm and safe winter in your TriBridge Residential apartment.
