4 Useful Tips to Keep Your Home Tidy


Sometimes it can seem as if the mess builds up out of nowhere. No matter how much you wish your home was spotless, it somehow manages to slide back into chaos as soon as you turn your back. It isn't an uncommon phenomenon; life can get on top of you and push tidying out of your list of priorities. When the mess builds up past a certain point it can make it even more difficult to start the process of tidying and the procrastination creates a vicious cycle. Here you will find tips on how to break out of this cycle and keep up with the maintenance of a consistently tidy home.


1. Tidy As You Go


After completing a deep clean of your home, you will likely want to avoid having to do it again in the future. A great way to avoid this is to tidy as you go. Instead of leaving your belongings around the house and waiting until a quiet day to tidy every room, simply put items away when you have finished using them. This is much simpler and quicker thanplanning a day or weekend of intensive tidying.


2. Give Everything Its Place


Each item in your home should have a place it belongs to. For example, your kitchen utensils have designated drawers, so why shouldn't your keys or receipts? Take note of which items in particular you tend to misplace or find cluttering up your home, then choose somewhere appropriate for them to stay when not in use. Instead of keeping your paperwork piled up in the corner of a room, figure out a simple filing solution. When everything has its place, it's easier to find an item if it goes missing. If you can't find a place for something that you don't want to get rid of, consider Morespace Storage at to keep belongings somewhere safe and out of the way.


3. Donate Unwanted Items


If you find that there are many unwanted and unused items in your home that take up too much space, consider giving them to people you know who might appreciate them. Have a cupboard or basket in your home with these items and let guests know that they are welcome to take anything from it when they leave. You could also donate these unwanted items to worthy causes or sell them online to make some money.There are plenty ways to get rid of your clutter without throwing it away.


4. Appreciate What You Own


When you are able to appreciate and value everything in your home, you can distinguish it from the items that don't need to take up your valuable space. This also helps when considering a new purchase. If you have something similar at home that fulfils the same role, you might think twice about adding an unnecessary object to your home out of impulse. Of course, this also means that if you truly need or want something you will know for sure that it deserves a place in your home.

How To Make Your Mom's Mother's Day Extra Special


Moms are awesome! From giving birth to us to taking care of us even well into adulthood when we need it, mothers do a hard job – too often still without enough support in society or the workplace. Here are some ways you can show your appreciation for your mom by making her Mother’s Day this year truly unforgettable.

Buy her something nice

Of course, for many families it wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without some thoughtful Mother’s Day presents from the kids. Whether you are five or fifty, a gift is sure to make your mom feel loved and appreciated. Remember that you don’t have to spend tons of money on your mother’s present: a cute house plant or a box of cookies will work just as well as jewelry.

Make her something nice

Presents might be a must on Mother’s Day, but another way to make your mom feel special is to put time and effort into making something for her. A treat which is sure to go down well is to make breakfast for your mother and bring it to her in bed. Here are over fifty breakfast ideas to get your inspiration going. Just make sure to clean up after yourself when you cook, as the last thing any mom wants on Mother’s Day is to become once again the unofficial, unpaid designated family cleaner!

Take her somewhere nice

Another task which too often falls on a mothers’ shoulders is organizing family outings and get-togethers. On Mother’s Day this year, take it upon yourself to organize a trip somewhere nice for the whole family or just for the two of you. Perhaps your mom has a favorite spot in the countryside, or she might enjoy a trip to a fine dining restaurant. Make sure that you are choosing a place which she would enjoy (this day is not about what you, your dad or your siblings want to do!) and don’t forget to take your wallet out at the right time. Parents like to treat us, but at least once a year it’s our turn to treat them!

Be nice!

Finally, but perhaps most importantly, Mother’s Day is not a time to rehash old disagreements with your mom or to ask her for money or other favors. Remember that this day is all about your mother and make an effort to be nice to her and show her how much you love her, even if some of her quirks and turns of phrase drive you up the wall! Keep in mind too, that just as you might occasionally feel like you’ve had too much of your mother, she probably feels the same way about you. All parents do, and it doesn’t mean that they love us any less!

So, in preparation for this year’s Mother’s Day, put some thought into how you are going to make your mom feel special, loved and cherished. A little planning can go a long way and is sure to put a smile on your mom’s face!

Desirable Gifts To Take To A Baby Shower





When your best friend or family member is pregnant, it is an exciting time. If you have been invited to the baby shower, it can be a bit tricky to know which gifts to bring, especially if you have never attended one before or don't have kids. What do new parents want? 

Parents to be can never have enough baby clothes and bibs. Rest assured, the baby will have enough cuddly toys. However, you may want to get them something different that they will need. Here is a brief list of what you could give at a baby shower that will be useful. 

Breast pads

It may seem unusual, but any mother-to-be will thank you for gifting her breast pads. Even if she doesn't intend to breastfeed her baby. 

You can get disposable breast pads at any pharmacy, but why not opt for reusable ones? There are many options online made from cotton and bamboo. These options often reduce the likelihood of developing fungal issues. They allow the breast to breathe while also being hygienic. 


Who doesn't love a baby swaddle? They are timeless, functional, and look adorable! These cute baby swaddles will make any parent-to-be coo. While also offering a practical solution for those first few months. 

Look to get a swaddle that is light in color and made from natural material. Once again, cotton and bamboo are your friends here. They are both easy to wash and are reusable as the baby grows.

Room thermometer

Babies cannot regulate their body temperature. So, they almost need a climate-controlled environment to help them sleep and grow. 

There are many room thermometers online that can be a great gift at a baby shower. Many of them can indicate to parents in an instant if the room is too hot or too cold. This is a practical and easy to give gift, that is likely to be accepted with much thanks from parents-to-be.


There are many baby-based toiletry brands online, so it can be tough to choose which item is a must-have. The best option is to get a lotion or cream that is suitable for both mom-to-be and newborns

Be sure to get toiletries with a mild scent, preferable hypoallergenic and water-based. Steer clear of anything that is brightly colored or scented. It may also be worth looking for moisturizers that have aloe vera and cocoa butter in them. These can soothe aching muscles and are great for reducing dry skin naturally. They also smell divine, so they will go down a treat.

Pregnancy pillows

Who said the gift at the baby shower has to be solely for the baby? There are great present ideas for moms-to-be to enjoy  as well.  

In the later months of pregnancy, moms-to-be can find it tough to sleep. So, to earn best friend status in an instant, why not opt for a pregnancy pillow

This will support the growing bump throughout the later stages of pregnancy. All while helping the mom-to-be get some much-needed rest. Pregnancy pillows can also support aching legs and boobs too. Great for every stage of pregnancy and postnatal.

Can You Get Out of a Lease Early?

Sometimes things don’t always go as planned and you need to get out of a lease early. Getting out of a lease early can seem like uncharted territory, but it can be possible under certain circumstances. 

How to Get Out of a Lease Early

Getting out of a lease early isn’t typically easy, but there are some ways to maximize your chances. Read the Lease: Focus on the fine print because this is where you will find the penalties and procedures of early termination. Leases generally protect the landlord more than the tenant, so you might owe money to your landlord. 

Communication Is Important: If you need to get out of the lease early, then you need to communicate with your landlord. Some may be more understanding and flexible. You may be able to reason with them before you do anything drastic. 

Get Everything in Writing: If your landlord does agree to end the lease early, then get that information in writing. Verbal agreements can’t be proved if you end up in court and it will be the lease that will prevail. Keep a paper trail if you have ongoing communication with your landlord, especially if there are maintenance issues that mean you need to get out of your lease early. 

Do a Walkthrough before Leaving: Before you leave the property for the final time, make sure you do a walkthrough with your landlord and take photos so you have proof of the state of the property. This will protect you if your landlord wants to sue for damages or keep your deposit.

Avoid Any Assumptions: You don’t want to assume that your deposit is going to cover overdue rent or property damage. Be sure to check local and state guidelines before you assume anything or seek legal advice. 

Get Legal Help: You may need to get legal help if you need to get out of your lease early and have exhausted other options. This is especially important if you think your landlord has acted illegally. 

Reasons to Get Out of Your Lease Early

There are some common reasons why it may be necessary to get out of a lease early. If you are an active-duty military member, then you may need to get out of your lease early if you are deployed. Landlords can be usually understanding in these circumstances. Other reasons to get out of your lease early include your rental unit not being habitable, your landlord enters your home illegally, or you can’t pay rent. 

Does It Cost Money to End Your Lease Early?

There is no set cost associated with ending a lease, but you may be required to pay a significant amount. If you aren’t able to find anyone to take over the lease, then your landlord may say that you have to pay rent until a new renter moves in or your lease is up. It’s possible you could also lose your security deposit if you want to get out of your lease early.

5 Must-Read Books in Honor of Earth Day



Stephon Stewart, author of the book ‘Dry," shares a list of books every reader should add to their list

LOS ANGELES, California – (March 7, 2022) – Earth Day is held each year on April 22. The yearly event officially started in 1970 and has spread around the world. The idea behind it is to raise awareness about the environmental protection of the planet we call home. Putting a focus on the state of the environment has never been more critical, and it's something that people of all ages can do. Those looking for good spring reading material will find numerous books that will provide them with an entertaining insight into our planet's environment.


“Whether you read often or not, make it a goal to read at least one or two environmentally-related books this spring to celebrate Earth Day,” explains Stephon Stewart, theorist, and author. "There is so much important information that we all need to be aware of, and numerous books that have what we need to know to make improvements."


We have many issues impacting the planet, leading to the decline of the environment. We are witnessing ecosystems disappearing, wetlands being lost, forests being cut down, and the coral reefs are dying. Our oceans are losing ice caps, being overfished, and having more plastic particles than natural material in some areas. Our lifestyles and desire for more are leading to an all-out war on nature and leading to climate change.


The best way to combat these issues is to learn about them, take action, and share the information with others. The more people that get on board with helping to protect the environment, the better the planet will be. Here are 5 must-read books in honor of Earth Day that every teen and adult should read:

  • Silent Spring,” (Mariner Books, Anniversary Edition, October 2002) by Rachel Carson. Originally published in 1962, this is the most popular environmental book ever published. The book shed light on how harmful pesticides were being used for the environment and health. Carson inspired millions of people to care about the environment and take action.
  • Dry” (Markosia Enterprises, October 2021) by Stephon Stewart. The sci-fi fantasy graphic novel has a mission of showing readers what the planet will be like if we don't change our environmental habits now. Such changes are necessary to address global warming because scientists predict that it will lead to heat waves, hurricanes, weather extremes, shrinking ice caps, rising sea levels, warming of the ocean, and ocean acidification. 
  •  “Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation That Starts in Your Yard,” (Timber Press, February 2020) by Douglas W. Tallamy. This book offers practical solutions that people can take to preserve nature, starting with the backyard. Readers will be inspired to help connect green spaces to help save nature and wildlife.
  • Emperors of the Deep: The Mysterious and Misunderstood World of the Shark,” (William Collins, July 2021) by William McKeever. Not only do readers learn about the devastating plight of the apex predator that has survived 450 million years, but they learn about the current state of the world’s oceans and why it’s so important to save them, starting with the sharks. 
  • The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times" (Celadon Books, October 2021) by Jane Goodall. An icon in the conservation movement, Goodall offers a look at pressing environmental issues and hopes for making positive changes.

"We have to make changes to protect our environment, and it starts with us," added Stewart. "The books are eye-opening and will inspire people to make changes this Earth Day and all through the year."


Stewart’s book, which was written for ages 13 and up, helps put things into perspective. The story focuses on the journey a farmer and his daughter take to find water to survive because the Earth has dried up due to global warming. Readers will learn about the impact that each of us has on helping to address the problem, which scientists say is human-caused.


Throughout the story, we are constantly reminded not to take Earth for granted as we see troubling visuals of our planet without oceans and agriculture. We see the future of the alarming consequences of climate change and what would happen if we continued to allow Earth's atmosphere to remain in a vulnerable state. See how the story ends and read the 186-page adventure story for yourself. "Dry is out everywhere now and available worldwide at Barnes and NobleAmazon, and


About Stephon Stewart

Stephon Stewart is a director, writer, artist, and academic. The stories Stewart creates are metaphysical narratives and fantasy thrillers that implement Nostradamus themes. His concern for the future of humanity has inspired him to write a trilogy of scripts called DRY, WET, and ICE. Stewart’s original adventure fantasy script, DRY, was adapted into a 186-page graphic novel with art by David Cousens and lettering by Kuen Tang. DRY was acquired by one of the UK's leading publishers in the industry, Markosia, and is now available at TARGET, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Stewart’s artistic vision is to inspire humanity to remain hopeful and active in the clean energy transformation for Earth, while his passion has directed him toward exploration in both science and environmental ethics. This passion led him to paint on canvas depictions of what may happen to the Earth if we don’t take care of our planet. Today that art is on apparel with climate change messaging: Global Transfiguration. In between filmmaking and writing, Stewart has continued his studies in physics and has been published in the Open Journal for Biophysics, based on a theory he's developed with a neuroscientist to unblock blood vessels and clogged arteries, to extend life:
