Household Cleaning with Vinegar


cleaning with vinegarSeveral weeks ago I wrote a post about the five effective household cleaners you probably already have. Today I want to focus on one of those in particular. White vinegar may just be an absolute miracle worker. My boyfriend and I are making our final preparations to move out of Tampa and into St. Petersburg so I have been spending a ton of time cleaning to make sure we get our security deposit back. After having success with the vinegar and dishwasher trick listed in the post mentioned above, I decided to check out Pinterest to see what other secrets were out there.

Today’s post is a guest post by Kal Elfarro, General Manager for Canadian General Contractors Group (CGC) in Ottawa. In addition to managing home remodels, Kal blogs about housing, renovation and even moving. 

Every year, we help Canadian homeowners turn their houses into perfect abodes. Throughout our many years of experience, we’ve noticed a continuous pattern of what features are the most important and desirable in a home. If you’re hunting for a new place, try using our handy guide below to ensure that you pick the house that will satisfy your needs.

Foreclosure versus Short Sale


foreclosure versus short saleBuying a home is no easy task. It takes a lot of work to find a home that suits your needs and preferences let alone your budget. Going with a foreclosure or short sale property can be a great way to save money on a wonderful home, but it’s important to know the difference between the
two as well as the challenges you may be faced with.

How to Consider a Relocation Offer


Consider a relo offerWe talk a lot about relocating for work and how to understand the benefits that an employer offers for such circumstances. Recently, a good friend of mine was offered an amazing opportunity to help expand her company to the west coast. If accepted, she would move to California, be promoted, receive a salary increase, and get the chance to work side by side with top executives. She’s always wanted to move to California since a lot of her family is already there and she had been working hard to prove she was right for the job. Here’s the catch, her company doesn’t offer any relocation assistance. The entire move from Delaware to California would be out of pocket and on her own time. That changes what would have been a no brainer to a pretty tough decision.

Happy Labor Day!


Labor DayAfter a very hectic and busy summer, Labor Day is the moving industry’s first sign of deceleration. But Labor Day is much more than that of course.
Labor Day is a day meant to recognize and celebrate the contributions that employees have made to the organizations they work for and the communities they live in.
Thank you to everyone at Holman Moving Systems for their hard work (this summer and every day) and to our customers for making it another great season. We hope everyone has a lovely, restful and well-earned holiday.

Happy Labor Day!
