Home office upgrades

Being a complete nerd causes some storage issues. I find myself having to house two laptops, two desktops, an ipod touch and a tablet! I know no one needs this much stuff but it just does not pay to get rid of your older systerms and sadly with the way things are upgraded now you can really get a new system of some sorts every two to three years or else you fall behind in the times. Doing work that requires fast paced, memory hog programs for graphics and photography really requires you stay on top of the game. My computer room is a mass of stuff from desks to chairs to laptop bags. I would really like to find a good laptop storage option to make my laptop both accessible and convenient.

My desk tops each have large desks that take up too much space. The thought of shoving a large laptop cart in the mix makes me cringe. Something small and movable with wheels would serve me best. I tend to move around alot in my work station space so having a portable cart would prove useful. Lets also face it having a chair with wheels keeps you moving from side of the room to side of the room so why not take your laptop with you! I also am a bit of a snob and like the options of different looks so it all congeals together in the room. I conduct a little bit of business in there and do not want it to look a mess when people see it.

I am looking at two laptop carts to solve my storage and usability issues that I currently am facing in my home office. Som ething in a light wood and glass would really fit into the space.

Spring time is almost here

Well it seems spring is fast approaching. I like to start getting ideas for how i want to do my spring cleaning in advance. This year I find myself in need of a new shed to get the process going. I have this tiny little shed that came pre built with my home but it barely holds anything more than my lawn mower so I decided it was time to upgrade. Having a larger shed will help me declutter my house and put the outdoor items right where they belong! I started to look around for some design ideas and found Arrow Sheds is a good match for the type of structure I desire.

When looking for the perfect storage shed I wanted to go with something sturdy and durable. My backyard suffers from standing water when we have any kind of substantial rain so I needed a shed that wcould with stand this. A nice looking yet functional shed was really my goal. I also needed one that would match my current exterior color scheme as I do reside in an assiciation that will not tolerate mismatched colors.

After careful consideration I decided a steel shed would meet not only my price range but also the size and durability I would like. Back in the day we thought of steel sheds to be unattractive but with design changes they haveblown this issue out of the water. Versatile and roomy a steel shed can be a welcome addition to your backyard. I am really excited to have mine up and running so that I can get a start on the spring cleaning of my home. Without the addition of the storage space that a new larger shed spring cleaning would just be alot of frustration trying to find place for the items that currently have no place to call their own.

The world of apps

I have to admit having a droid smart phone has really changed my life. I can not imagine living without one now from all of the apps and connectivity that you get at your finger tips with the phone not to mention it comes in handy in emergencies! Remember the day when calling meant a pay phone Having to drive in circles because you did not have GPS or not knowing what a recipe calls fopr while you are in the grocery store. Well the answer to all of this is they have an app for it! We now have apps for everything from a flashlight, a budget app, heck even an app to remind you of your fertility times of the month. So I am always on the look out for some good app web sites to see what is new out there to keep my life either better organized or filled with more entertainment. Some of the apps can get quite pricey so having a reliable site to find good priced apps helps take the guess out of searching.

The ability to take entertainment in the palm of your hands has really changed so much in the world. I love watching a good movie or tv show while I am waiting for my doctor's appointment to keep my mind occupied. I have found this to really bring a sense of calm to me in even the most stressful situations. Or to veg out to music while I ride in a taxi cab makes it all go by so much faster. I was one of those people that said I never want to be a slave to my cell phone but now I find my phone to be my friend allowing my world to be expanded even when I do not have the time to do it from the comfort of my home.

I keep up with the app sites and have found a great place to save on apps, movies and more. I reccomend always staying up to date on the newest developements as you never know what might come into the world of apps and help make the every day grind a little more enjoyable. To me that is worth all the time in the world!
