11 Repairs You Can Do Yourself Instead of Calling in an Expert

You know that home repair you've http://www.ehow.com/how_2313157_repair-garage-doors.html been putting off for weeks because you think it'll cost you an arm and a leg to fix? Well, think again! We've collected the best handyman hacks for those annoying household problems, and you're about to discover it's easier than you thought! So, roll up your sleeves and figure out which wrench is your monkey wrench, because you can do all of these home repairs this weekend!

8. Re-Attach a Cabinet Latch

Time: 10 minutes

Cost: $20


Sounce: Home Repair Tutor on Hometalk

Instead of replacing your whole garage door (yikes!), you can probably solve the stuck or noisy garage door problem by just replacing its rollers. This handy DIY can certainly save you from a hefty repairman bill, but only if you follow Jeff's preliminary safety tips! Trust us, you do not want to end up having to buy an entirely new garage door because you forgot to cut the power off.



3. Caulk The Bathtub

Time: 2-4 hours (for drying time)


Removing wallpaper can be the bane of a new homeowner's existence, so much so that many of us have wondered who else but a professional is even capable of accomplishing the task! Thankfully, HomeSpot HQ has the tricks you need to get the job done fast, and for a fraction of the price! For this DIY repair, you'll just need a steamer or gel wallpaper removal agent, a broad knife and a perforator.

We're not going to ask how it got there, we're just going to help you make it seem like it never happened. Sidestep the cost and explanation to a repairman and go grab a drywall patch from the store! Great news is, you'll finally get to see what's behind your wall (haven't you always wondered?). You'll be on the path to smooth walls and a fatter wallet with Jeff's How-To guide.

To successfully execute this project, follow the step by step instructions shared by home improvement guru Jeff, aka The Home Repair Tutor. Pay particular attention when it comes to drilling holes in the tile, before smashing it to pieces.

There's no way around it, that old cracked tile just has to go. As motivation to tackle this project, just think of how much you'll enjoy breaking up the old tile to make way for a new piece (how often are you allowed to break things?).


There is no way around it, a slightly ajar cabinet makes the whole room look disheveled. Whip your bathroom or kitchen back into shape with this easy, do it yourself repair. Just de-gunk and then reattach that pesky latch plate (or buy a replacement if the plate is MIA) with ultra strong, outdoor double sided tape. If you follow John the AZ DIY Guy's steps this will only set you back $20 and 10 minutes!

10. Replace Those Garage Door Rollers

Time: 1 hour

Cost: $8

A leaky washer machine repair can easily set you back almost $300. Luckily, Jeff paid the price so you don't have to! He studied his plumber to learn his repairman secrets. This is a do-able DIY- just follow Jeff's instructions and you'll be back to doing the laundry in no time, which is what you wanted all along, wasn't it?

5. Seal Your Windows

Time: 1 hour per window

Cost: $60

6. Fix a Stripped Hole in Wood

Time: Cost: $10


Is your shower looking a little dingy and gunky? Have you been avoiding looking at the corners for a while now? Let's face it, it's time to re-caulk. Do it yourself, and it'll be over before you know and will cost less than $30! So take a deep breath and peel off what's left of the old, discolored caulk and follow this absolutely fool-proof guide by Ann.

7. Fix That Leaking Faucet

Time: 15 minutes

Cost: $12


1. Fix a Cracked Floor Tile

Time: 2-3 hours

Cost: $50

4. Fix Holes in the Wall

Time: 3-4 hours

Cost: $10


Well there you have it, the best kept repair secrets of experienced handymen. There's no need to live with ugly, dirty wallpaper or a broken garage door -- you can fix it all yourself! You can find even more home maintenance and repair How-To's and projects on Hometalk.

We've all been there. Depending on the crack, you can fix this one of two ways, but you can fix it yourself, you weekend warrior you! If it's a minor crack, some poly foam caulk saver and concrete crack filler, as per Jeff's instructions, ought to do the trick. If you suspect that an entire section is weak, or you see a whole slew of cracks, you'll need to slice out that area and pour in new concrete. Before doing so, ensure you have a properly compacted soil and a gravel based underneath.


11. Remove Old Wallpaper

Time: 1-2 hours

Cost: $30

9. Fix a Leaking Washer Machine

Time: ~1 hour

Cost: $60

2. Repair Driveway Cracks

Time: 20 minutes

Cost: $1


It's hard to say what drives you crazier, the slow "drip, drip, drip" of a leaky faucet, or the idea of your hard earned money disappearing down the drain. Well, the buck stops here!

You don't need to call a plumber for this one- you've got this! If a quick tightening job on the handles doesn't work, you'll just need to replace your cartridges. Not sure what a faucet cartridge is? That's ok, Jeff does, and his instructions include plenty of informative pictures!

How-To Fix a Leaky Faucet

A stripped hole is probably one of the most annoying home problems there is! Before you do something rash, like call a $50 an hour handyman, just grab a bottle of carpenter's glue and a sturdy golf tee. Thanks to HomeSpot HQ's tutorial, you can kiss your stripped hole woes goodbye!


Energy bill costs are a common, and understandable, gripe amongst homeowners. If you live in an older home, there's a good chance you can significantly trim down your heating and cooling costs by making sure your windows are airtight. You can knock out this home improvement project for just $60 and an hour per window! The Old Houses' Kevin O'Connor has got your back with these 9 steps to locking down your airflow.




Watching the community bloom at Holding Court

First up at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, is Lucy Hardiman, a nationally known garden designer. She will be discussing how to grow plants vertically.

From beach trips to bowling to ballgames, the social club, which is open to anyone 21 and older, is all about fun. The group has even gone ziplining. Activity ideas are generated by club members.

And dont forget to wear your bonniest bonnet for the hat contest at 3:45 p.m. No chapeau? No worries. If you do not have a hat, there will be plenty to borrow. Gloves are also encouraged.

The students have been fundraising frenetically for months, and thanks to those efforts and the generosity of the North High community, plane tickets have been purchased for the delegation.

Catherine Webber, recently returned from presenting at the International Research Society for Public Management in Hong Kong, stopped by Holding Court to put in a call for volunteers and support.

The first fundraiser is aMexican dinner that will begin at 6 p.m. April 30 at the Fraternal Order of Eagles lodge,371 SPacific Highway,Woodburn, OR 97071. The cost is $6 for any item on the fundraiser menu.

According to the American Red Cross, although an estimated 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood at any given time, less than 10 percent of that population actually does. This is an alarming statistic because blood cannot be manufactured,it can only come from human donation.

Wolcott said the 30 applicants were then whittled to the eight, and several criteria beyond GPA were considered for the cut.

The society's emergency services fund is being tapped heavily these days. Itis currently serving 800 families from our community monthly with food supplies and rent and utility assistance. Crawford said the society is getting at least 10 requests daily with these life essentials.

The next meeting before the group breaks for the summer (monthly meetings resume in September) will feature Maurice Horn, co-owner of Joy Creek Nursery and one-time board members of the International Clematis Society. Horn will speak at 7 p.m. at the Tuesday, May 24 meeting, also in the Anderson Room at the library.

Hours are 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday; 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 6 p.m. Tuesday; and 8:30 a.m. to noon Friday. Walk-in intake hours are 9 to 11 a.m. and 2 to 6 p.m. every Tuesday.

And in big news, Andreasaid Ag Fest will continue its annual tradition of horse-drawn wagon rides, but in an effort to minimize wait times, officials are adding a second wagon this year.

On June 18, a group of eight students and three teachers are traveling to Kawagoe through the Kawagoe Cultural Exchange program, which has been ongoing since 1987, Wolcott said.

For information, call 503-588-2410 or go to friendsofbushgardens.org.

Webber, a former state senator, is part of the Institute for Modern Government, a local nonprofit organization that analyzes issues and problems facing government and collaborates on solutions. The organization is looking to recruit volunteers to assist with its website and content. Additionally, it is seeking fundraising support.

The gallery is also seeking submissions for its next show, which takes place May 4 through 28. The theme, Textiles from art to apparel, includes felt, fabric, knitting, crocheting, lace making, basketry, weaving and any other textile art form that is artistically employed. Entry fee is $10 for one item or $25 for three. Drop off your goods 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30.

Shari Crawford, executive director of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Council of the Mid-Willamette Valley, came by with a plea.

Join a club

Michele Vanderyacht of southeast Salem'sEpic Fitness wants to do more and give more back to the community, so starting May 6, she's hosting a Red Cross blood drive at the gym and then she'll repeat the event every 56 days -- the minimum amount of time allowed between blood donations.

Gould andDeatherage said they hope the entire Salem community will come out to support the effort to send a delegation to Salem's sister city.

Hats off to both for their staying power, and our heartiest congratulations, Marlene and crew.

Carly Gould and Chris Deatherage, students at North Salem High School, stopped by with French teacher Ben Wolcott to promote three upcoming fundraisers that will help a group of students preparing to take a trip to Salem's sister city in Kawagoe, Japan.

With much skittishness, 3-month-old lamb Sassy stayed close to her handler, 18-year-old Faith Wilson, who is a member ofthe Scio chapter of the National FFA Organization. The lamb and lass were joined by HannaKrahmer, 9, and hermini lop rabbit Martin, her brother, MasonKrahmer, 6, who had a carton of six newborn chicks,their mom, Oregon Ag Fest board member Andrea Krahmer, and Brandi Buxton, Ag Fest volunteer coordinator. The critters and crew in the alley next to the restaurant were hoping to attract attention for this weekend's 29th annualAg Fest at the Oregon State Fairgrounds.

Best of all, the Ag Fest, April 23-24,is free to children 12 and younger; parking is free and general admission for everyone else is $9, but a coupon on the Ag Fest website, oragfest.com/attend/, knocks $2 off the adult admission price. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Originally from the Bay Area, Scott moved to Salem about a year ago after living in Portland for a few years. I had a hard time connecting in Portland, but an easy time here. Its more accessible, he said. Its a wonderful place. Everything here is making me want to paint and paint and paint.

She wants to remind the public that every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, and that approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed daily in the U.S.

Sister-city love

"But they need to eat and sleep while they're there, and we need to prepare for a reception we give to the Japanese students when they arrive next fall, to extend to them the same courtesies they give us, which is why we're having these fundraisers," Wolcott said.

Court Street Dairy Lunch owner Marlene Blanchard returned from her vacation to find the restaurant had been given celebrity status. Alert the media. Oh wait; we are the media.

The MCMG Association is part of the Oregon State University Extension Service. For more information, call 503-588-5301. The library is at 585 Liberty St. SE.

Rain or shine, the Ag Fest brings together urban families to teach them about the importance of agriculture in the state. This year, it's expected that more than 18,000 people will learn through more than 60 free activities how important agricultures economic impact is to the state, Andrea Krahmer said.

Get your greens

The state fairgrounds are at 2330 17th St. NE, Salem, 97301.

The sale offers really well grown, good quality plants at good prices, Carnaby said, noting that funds raised support local growers - there are15 of them involved this year - as well as the friends who work in Bushs Pasture Park.

More than 800 volunteers are marshaled to help put on the event, including farmers, ranchers and students from throughout the state. There will be a trade show, too.

Art awaits


So roll up your sleeve. The O blood type is especially needed since it is the universal blood type that can transfused with A, B, or AB blood types.

Hear themusic, help the community

The organization has been presented with a variety of opportunities, said Webber, but lacks the financial backing to take action.

More than 30 critters will be onhand to show children where the food they eat comes from, how sheep are raised for their wool to make clothing, and the importance of forests for Oregon's ecology and the health of the state's residents.

The office merged with Legal Aid Services of Oregon about 10 years ago, said Angelica Vega, and decided the move was a good time to update the name.

To help replenish the fund, St. Vincent de Paul is hosting a folk concert with Massachusetts singer and guitarist David Roth, who is known for combiningsong, spirit and speech in person and on CD.

Additionally, there will be pony rides, the ever-popular digging for potatoes exhibit, minipedal-tractor rides,firtree seedlings to take home, an opportunity to meet Nosey the cow,and an opportunity to watch chicks hatch.

We are excited about being downtown, right across from the courthouse, Vega said.

Anyone who stops by to donate will be given an all-access one-week pass to Epic Fitness, she said. The pass is good for all of the gym's facilities and classes.

"This is perfect for people who have small spaces or who want to cover a wall," Beth said.

On the same night as the artist reception, there will be a spring/Mothers Day themed Make-N-Take card event hosted by the gallery and Runaway Arts & Craft Studio. All ages are welcome. Materials will be provided and Christy from Runaway will be there with ideas and offering assistance.

Gould, a fourth-year Japanese student, said about 30 students applied for the exchange, which sends North Salem High students to Japan every other year. During the off year, Japanese students visit Salem. The students stay first with host families and then in youth hostels.

The weather was a perfect 80 degrees outside and passers-by squinted into the sunas they stepped lightly along the sidewalk. Inside the Court Street Dairy Lunch, it was just as nice aseverything was coming up roses. Andblueberriesandclematis andpotatoes andDoug fir seedlings.Also there was Statesman Journal entertainment reporter Carlee Wright, who stepped in for Michael Davis this week.

Adorned in their fancy hats, event organizers Cindy Nielsen and Mary Knutsen were bubbling over with news of the sweet and savory delights attendees can expect from the second annual tea, which conveniently falls near Mothers Day. A variety of mini sandwiches, scones and Devonshire cream, plus a couple of gluten-free optionsare just a few of the treats to be relished. There will also be a fashion show featuring childrens attire, sponsored by Mother Goose Resale, and adult wear, sponsored by Rags to Riches, beginning at 3 p.m. And a talk about brewing proper tea.

Well-deserved recognition

There are currently 24 appointment spots open between 1 to 6 p.m.May 6.

For information, call 503-798-9973 or go to redravengallery.com.

The Red Cross also now allows blood donors to save time by completing a RapidPass on the day of their donation. Answering questions prior to arrival reduces the process. The blood draw typically takes about 12 minutes, Vanderyacht said, but the process can take about an hour and 15 minutes because all donors must provide a medical history and are given a mini physical and have their temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin checked.

Clematis is perennial buttercup-family plant that has brightly colored flowers of varying size and form.

The group meets at 6 p.m. on the first Monday of every month at Center 50+, 2615 Portland Road NE. Its a social time for members to meet, visit and have the opportunity to sign up for future events. Dessert is served and coffee is available.

"After you donate, they give out great cookies," Vanderyacht said. "So workout before you give blood to work them off and remember no heavy lifting afterward."

According to volunteer Gretchen Carnaby, the sale has the "most incredible" organically grown tomato plants and the "widest selection" of herbs available, plus an unusual selection of perennials, shrubs and trees.

We are always looking for new people. New people bring new ideas and new activities, member John Jost said.

An appointment is "strongly recommended," she said because last time, several people without them arrived close to quitting time and they were turned away.

"We send a delegation that best represents our student community; not all are in Japanese classes," Wolcott said.

Farouk and Beth Husseini stopped by to saythe next two speakers for the series, sponsored by the association and held in the Anderson Room of the Salem Public Library, will be offering fun and informative talks applicable to all types of gardeners.

Call 503-585-1479 or 503-363-3458 to reserve your spot.

We think we can make Oregon the capital of modern government, she said. We are doing stuff no one else is doing.

The beauty of the club is that any member can come up with an idea, John said.

Both speakers offer question and answer time after their discussions, and as always, the Marion County Master Gardeners provide light refreshments and door prizes to anyone interested in gardening.

Navy radio might be crippling Conn. garage doors

HARTFORD, Conn. A radio signal being transmitted out of a submarine base is likely behind reports of garage doors failing to open and close in southeastern Connecticut, the U.S. Navy said Monday.

The signal is part of the Enterprise Land Mobile Radio system, which is used by the military to coordinate responses with civil emergency workers, said Chris Zendan, a spokesman for submarine base in Groton.

The problem, first reported by The Day of New London, is that the same frequency is used at very low levels by the manufacturers of garage door openers. The signals from remote controls to open or close the doors are blocked by the signal from the base.

Overhead Door Co. of Norwich Inc. told the newspaper it has been receiving complaints from several towns near the base and has found no problem with its equipment. The Associated Press left messages with the company Monday.

Sondra Tuchman, of Montville, told the newspaper she has to get out of her car, stand in front of the door and press the remote for the opener to work. She said an installation company told her she would have to pay about $300 to change her system to another frequency.

The garage-door companies do not need to be licensed to use the frequency because the remote controls transmit at such low levels, Zendan said. But the homeland security needs for the signal take precedence, he said.

"Because garage door openers are unlicensed devices, they are not offered any protection from interference by licensed users in the same frequency band, and in fact are required by federal law to accept interference from licensed users," Zendan said. "Base commanding officers do not have the authority to change those systems, and unfortunately we cannot offer compensation to the unlicensed users."

Dave Osso, brand manager for The Genie Co., a Mt. Hope, Ohio, manufacturer of garage door opening systems, said the problem dates to the 1990s, when the military began using the same frequency used for door openers. The company sells dual-frequency openers that switch to a different frequency if interference is a factor, he said.

"For the most part, people over the years figured it out," Osso said.

For decades, the military has held a portion of the radio spectrum, from 138 to 450 megahertz, in reserve. But that range came back into use after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when officials discovered they needed a new system to allow civil and military first responders to communicate.

The ELMR system, which uses radio frequencies between 380 and 399.9 megahertz, was developed. It began operating at the sub base last summer but is not unique to the state.

In 2006, residents around an Air Force facility in Colorado Springs, Colo., saw their garage-door remotes stop working when the 21st Space Wing began testing a frequency for use during homeland http://www.yellowpages.com/milwaukee-wi/garage-door-repair security emergencies or threats. In 2005, testing of a similar system in Fort Detrick in Maryland resulted in similar problems.

In May, Overhead Door Co. said it would offer free installation and parts to change the signal on remote garage door openers near a naval base in Newport, R.I.



3-year-old killed by garage door: Young girl pinned and does not survive

Sadly, a 3-year-old was killed by a garage door in Waldorf, Md. on Friday. The accident happened around 4 p.m. and WTOP reported the details about the tragic accident on April 5.


There were people inside the house when the accident happened, and an adult heard the door close and went to check on the girl within minutes. The 3-year-old killed by the garage door was pinned with the door on her back, and she was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The name of the little girl http://www.ehow.com/how_2313157_repair-garage-doors.html has not been released. Authorities say that she was playing with the garage door opener Friday afternoon when the door closed on her. The door did have sensors, but clearly they did not prevent the young girl from being crushed.

The Washington Post says that preliminary details indicate the girl may have died from asphyxiation, but an autopsy is schedule. Investigators are not sure how she ended up under the door, but they believe she may have pushed the control button and tried to run out under the door.

Regardless of how the young girl came to be under the door, or why the sensors did not manage to stop the door from pinning her, a family is surely devastated. The investigation into the details that led to the 3-year-old being killed by the garage door continues.

How to Lubricate a Garage Door

Garage doors, whether they are manually operated or have a garage door opener attached, need to have periodic maintenance to keep them operating efficiently. One of the most common problems with a garage door is a lack of lubrication. This is usually what causes the squeaking you hear and it can lead to breakdowns requiring a garage door repair. Fortunately, door lubrication can easily be done by the average home owner. While you are lubricating the door, inspect the door for any loose screws and tighten them as you go. Also look for any frayed or damaged cables, broken springs, misaligned track, or loose chain if the opener is chain driven. Basically, inspect all of the doors moving parts whenever you lubricate the door and replace garage door parts as necessary.

Step 1Garage doors should be closed prior to you lubricating and inspecting the door. The first step is to inspect the track to see in there is any grease or dirt buildup. If there is wipe or vacuum away any buildup in the tracks and on the rollers and roller pins before lubricating the door. Grease combines with sand and grit to form a sludge that acts as an abrasive and can interfere with the smooth operation of the door.

Step 2You should never attempt to replace or adjust cables or springs. The doors springs are under a great deal of tension and this makes them dangerous to adjust. You should always call a professional if they break or you think they need adjustment. That being said, you should be able to safely lubricate them. Apply lubricant to where the cables connect to the bottom roller mount brackets. This is also a good time to check the cable for wear. Next run a line of oil along the top of the torsion spring. The oil will eventually work into the spring and help prevent corrosion and increase the life of the spring because it will reduce the rubbing of the spring against itself.


Things You Will NeedSilicone or Teflon based penetrating spray lubricant, Dry powdered graphite

Tips & WarningsContrary to popular belief, WD-40 is not a lubricant. It is great for a cleaner to remove rust, grease, and other substances but if used as a lubricant it will not last and you will have to the re-lubricate the door sooner. It is however a good "quick fix" until you can lubricate the door properly.

Always unplug an electric opener before servicing the door. The springs, cables and bottom brackets http://searsgaragedoors.com/ are under extreme tension and can break without notice.

Whenever working with tools or chemicals such as lubricants, safety glasses are recommended

Step 3Lubricate the roller bearings, door hinges and pulleys with the penetrating spray. In addition, tracks should be lubricated using the same lubricant spray or powdered graphite.

Garage doors, whether they are manually operated or have a garage door opener attached, need to have periodic maintenance to keep them operating efficiently. Take a few minutes to lubricate and inspect your garage door and help prevent costly repairs.

How to Replace Garage Door Rollers

Garage door roller broken? Come out of its track? Garage doors need to periodically have parts repaired or replaced. Door hardware including the rollers can rust and wear out making the operation of the door difficult and in extreme cases they can break and jam in the door support tracks. Sometimes the rollers wear out completely and other times they may just come out of the track. In either case the hinge that holds the roller from the door panels must be removed to make the necessary door repair. It is almost impossible to replace a garage door roller without unbolting the hinge. This article will take you through the steps to safely remove the hinge and roller assembly and replace the roller.

Things You Will NeedSocket wrench and sockets are recommended but open end or box wrenches will work, replacement roller, C-clamps, 2x4 inch board cut to proper length, Silicone or Teflon based penetrating spray lubricant,

Step 1Garage doors should be opened prior to working on the hinge and roller assembly. This will help reduce the pressure on the spring and cable. Next install C-clamps under the bottom rollers on each side of the door on the garage door tracks. You can also use a long board wedged under the door to secure it in the up position. If you have a garage opener, unplug it to prevent anyone from accidentally activating it while you are working on the door.

Step 2When the hinge is loosened the door will have a tendency to sag. The door will need to be braced to prevent it from sagging and potentially breaking. This is where a helper can come in handy to hold the panels in place, or if working alone, a 2x4 cut to the proper length can be used as a brace to hold the door panels up. If a board is used, I recommend attaching two other pieces of 2x4x18 inches across each end forming a "I" shape. This will help hold the two door panels in place and act to stabilize the brace to help keep it from slipping while you are working.

Step 3The next step is to remove the bolts holding the hinge in place. Tip the hinge outward from the door to disengage the roller from the track. The roller will now slip out of the hinge. Sometimes a little force with a hammer may be necessary to free it. If the hinge shows wear it would be a good time to replace both the hinge and the roller. Take the old hinge and roller to the hardware store or home center to make sure you get an acceptable replacement. Most hardware http://www.garagedoorsva.com/fix-garage-door.php stores carry an assortment of different sizes and manufacturers. You can also find the necessary parts on-line. If you have to order the parts, logic would dictate that you order the parts prior to beginning the removal/replacement process.

Step 4The installation of the new roller is the reverse of the removal process. Slip the end of the roller into the hinge in the correct hole, tip the roller into the track, and attach the hinge to the garage door panels with the bolts that you removed earlier. Lubricate the roller and hinge, remove the support braces and the C-clamps. If you have a garage door opener, disengage it. Next test the door manually a few times. The panels may not align properly and a minor adjustment to reposition the hinge slightly may be needed. Make sure the bolts are tight and reengage the door opener. Plug in the opener and test the door again to see if it operates properly.

Garage doors need to periodically have parts repaired or replaced. Follow the steps in this article and you will be able to safely remove the hinge and roller assembly and replace the roller.

Tips & WarningsOne of the most common problems with garage doors is a lack of lubrication. This can lead to breakdowns. Lubricate the moving parts every six to twelve months depending on the environmental conditions where you live. Also, while you are lubricating the door, inspect the door for any loose screws and tighten them as you go. In addition, look for any frayed or damaged cables, broken springs, misaligned track, or loose chain if the opener is chain driven. Basically, inspect all of the doors moving parts whenever you lubricate the door.

Always unplug an electric opener before servicing the door.

The springs, cables and bottom brackets are under extreme tension and can break without notice. You should never attempt to replace or adjust cables or springs. You should always call a professional if they break or you think they need adjustment.

Auto insurers accused of skimping on repairs

The issue is a nationwide one, said John Eaves, the lead attorney for the body shops involved in the lawsuit.

Headlights held together by glue, dented rims and a new hood that's already coming apart are among the kinds of parts allegedly being pushed to go into cars as part of the repairs, according to some repair shops and attorneys general.

"This came wrapped up, out of this box, like it was supposed to be a new part," he said.

"The practice of steering involves jeopardy to the consumer because of the concern about parts," said Blumenthal, referring to the practice of steering customers towards certain preferred service centers.

"The insurance company wants us to put this stuff on their cars. If we refuse to use the part, then they label us as a shop not willing to go along with their program, and then they try to steer our business away from us.

Major insurers deny the claims of impropriety.

He said he fears thousands of Americans could be driving round in vehicles repaired with what he calls junkyard parts after seeking repairs from body shops recommended by their auto insurance companies who took their premiums and picked up the bill.

He declined to comment on recycled parts -- such as the broken headlight CNN saw -- saying he did not know the circumstances.

Alldredge said he did not believe "steering" was happening. He said a benefit of a preferred-shop program came for customers getting repairs done quickly, but it was always a customer's choice.

State Farm told CNN to talk to Neil Alldredge, of the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies, for more specifics.


'This is junk'

In Parker Auto Body shop in Monroe, Louisiana, Matt Parker has plenty of examples. He takes a replacement Toyota Tacoma headlight out of its wrapping. It's clearly been damaged and later glued and screwed back together.

Watch Anderson Cooper 360 weeknights 8pm ET. For the latest from AC360 click here.

"It is just not in the economic interest of the insurer to have a car go in and out of an auto body shop three or four times to get it right," said Alldredge. "And so the notion that somehow this is meant to ... do shoddy work or to encourage the idea that we have to get it done quickly and move on to the next one really isn't in the insurance company's economic interest."

When asked why insurance companies would require or recommend used parts, fixed parts, or aftermarket parts, he said: "Most companies don't require this. Most companies offer a choice to consumer. Any sort of aftermarket part that you might hear about are usually cosmetic parts. So they're nothing related to the safety, the mechanical parts of the operation of the vehicle. ... In many cases these parts are no different. They're made in the same factories. One just comes out with an auto manufacturer's name on it."

"Safety concerns are raised by this practice of steering because often it involves the use of parts that may be salvaged or inferior or even counterfeit and that is a real urgent and imminent safety concern for the consumer who may have no idea what the origin of the parts are, who made them, or even whether they're installed properly."

"The insurance industry has set up networks of shops, direct repair programs," he said. "And the way these shops' performance are measured is by the amount that it cost to repair cars at that particular shop. ... Just get the car in, make it look like it's fixed and get it out the door."

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who used to be Connecticut's attorney general, says not only is there a potential for small businesses to be hurt, but he, too, believes cars repaired through insurance company's preferred service centers pose a safety risk. He has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate.

"It involves people from Maine to Mississippi to California. Every state in the Union has experienced the same sort of struggle here between the body shops trying to do the work the right way, and the insurance companies trying to cut corners and force them to use unsafe parts and unsafe methods on their cars," he said.

"The insurance company may provide a list of auto body shops, and the customer can say, 'No. I wanna http://www.garagedoorsvc.com/ go to Joe's Body Shop around the corner.' And that's their choice. The issue of steering is already something that's not consistent with state law and not something that insurance companies do," he said.

John Mosley, an auto body shop owner in Clinton, Mississippi, explained how he saw insurance companies pushing consumers to "preferred" shops where repairs are done faster, cheaper, and at times unsafely.

"I have been concerned for years about it and why I think the Department of Justice should be investigating," he said.

"I believe strongly that federal watchdog agencies have a role in protecting consumers because serious safety concerns are raised by this practice of steering often involving the use of inferior or even salvaged or counterfeit parts," Blumenthal said.

Insurance companies can cut costs by approving recycled parts or those not made by the original car manufacturer.

More than 500 garages from 36 states are joining in a lawsuit against the top insurance companies, and states like Louisiana, Mississippi and Oklahoma are also getting involved.

State Farm would not grant an interview, but said in a statement: "Our customers choose where their vehicles are going to be repaired. We provide information about our Select Service program while at the same time making it clear they can select which shop will do the work."

Parker pointed to a crack in the lens that he says will fill with water the first time it rains.

Owners say the insurance companies steer their policy holders toward body shops that follow their rules, providing a vital source of business. And they add, if a body shop refuses to make the suggested repairs because of quality issues, the insurers steer their clients elsewhere.

"This is refurbished junk is what it is," he said. "This is junk."

"You can see right here where this bracket was knocked off from a previous accident," Parker told CNN. "It's got a hole in it here, and you can see where they screwed this bracket back on the vehicle. You can see here where all these parts were knocked off and glued back together."

In legal filings, the company denies all the allegations, including that it insists on using aftermarket parts.

Louisiana Attorney General Caldwell said he chose to sue State Farm Insurance because State Farm is the biggest insurer in his state.

Risky business for shops, customers

Buddy Caldwell, attorney general of Louisiana, has filed suit against State Farm insurance, saying its low-cost repair program could be dangerous for customers who get back on the road in vehicles that are not roadworthy.

Austria To Seize Hitler’s Birth House, Turn It Into Something That Will Keep Neo-Nazis Away

Outside a rather ordinary house in Braunau, Austria, there is a memorial stone with a curious inscription: "For Peace, Freedom and Democracy/Never Again Fascism/Millions of Dead Warn."

"Given the unique nature of the building, its historic significance and the public interest, we've decided to begin discussions seeking to http://a1garagedoorrepairutah.com/ lay the legal groundwork for the seizure."

The interior ministry hasn't disclosed any plans. Historians want it to be the site of the exhibit on peace, which would keep any neo-Nazis away.

However, it was owned by the Pommer family at the time. They had reportedly been the rightful owners since 1912 and in 1952, they bought it back. Descendent Gerlinde Pommer inherited it in 1977 and she's been the Austrian government's primary hurdle as they try to stop Hitler's birth house from becoming a place of pilgrimage once again.

In 1972, the Pommer's signed a lease with the government to use the building as a center for the disabled. That lease ended in 2011 because Gerlinde refused to renovate the decaying building to accommodate the disabled.

According to local media reports, Austria's Interior Ministry has come out to say that it's dead-set on preventing Hitler's birth house from becoming "an affirming memory of National Socialism." A ministry spokesman, Karl-Heinz Grundb?ck, said a draft law will head to Parliament this summer to facilitate the seizure and a commission of experts will determine its fate.

Austria wants to seize

Hitler's birth house, which sits empty and draws Nazi sympathizershttps://t.co/v33RaSqkps pic.twitter.com/GjJTHSclTG

At the end of World War II, American troops actually saved Hitler's birth house from destruction. The Nazis tried to destroy it and G.I.'s stopped them.

This stone gives a hint about its role in world history as the birth place of Adolf Hitler. And after decades spent trying to buy it from the owner, the Austrian government is taking steps to seize it, The New York Times reported.

Hitler was born in April, 1889 in an apartment in that building, located above a tavern at the time. In his youth, he left his hometown for Vienna (to fail as an artist) and then Munich. There, he orchestrated a failed coup before rising as the head of the Nazi party and then German chancellor. He committed suicide in 1945 as Allied troops moved in on Berlin.

In the middle of the debate over Hitler's birth house are the 17,000 residents of Braunau. They are divided on what to do with the place. Some want it to become a refugee center, others a museum about Austria's liberation, while others want it wiped from the cityscape forever.

Hitler's birth house now sits empty, drawing Nazi sympathizers and protesters alike in front of plain edifice.

The spot has lured Nazi sympathizers over the years and the government wants to pre-empt this possibility by giving it another purpose, like some kind of exhibit inside that would promote peace.

Over the years, he didn't seem to care much about his birthplace, concentrating his grandiose plans to collect art and create a huge museum in another city, Linz.

Over the years, she's also refused buyouts from the interior ministry. The national government and City of Braunau continue to rent the building, to the tune of $5,700 a month. If they seized the building, Pommer would be compensated.

Trouble is, Hitler's birth house is in Braunau's historic city center, so tearing it down is not an option, Deutsche Welle added.

-- New York Times World (@nytimesworld) April 10, 2016

"We have seen over the past few years that expropriation is the only way to prevent the building from being a draw for pro-Nazi sympathizers," a government spokesperson told Reuters.


In the late 1930s, a high-ranking Nazi named Martin Bormann bought place and restored it. The Nazis also deemed that Hitler's birth house be preserved and it became a place of pilgrimage from 1938 to 1945.

Fate of an old Austrian tavern probably wouldn't matter, had Hitler not been born upstairs. https://t.co/NFDUVAGoy1 pic.twitter.com/4rTJZjPi7R

How to program your garage door remote control

&hl=en_US&fs=1&">&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241">

You should be able to program your garage door remote after reading this!

I will be talking about Liftmaster and Craftsman garage door openers. The Chamberlain Corporation makes Craftsman, Chamberlain, and Sears Craftsman garage door openers. Whether you have a chain drive, a screw drive, or, a belt drive opener, they all program the same. There is a "learn" button on the machine that holds the information from the remote control. The learn button may be located on the side of the opener but, most models have them on the rear of the machine. How you can locate the button easily is to find where all of the wires are running into the machine. The learn button is usually square, but, it can be round. The colors of the buttons can be white, yellow, green, red, or the new frequency is purple.

Look at the photo above and you can see the square (red) button located on the left side of the "Logic board". The logic board is the computer that tells the opener whatto do and when to do it. It is also usually the first thing that lightening will hit in a thunderstorm. I basically is a radio frequency receiver that picks up electrically transmitted signals. Lightening is an electrical signal, and a very powerful one. The little wire on the bottom right side of the logic board is the receivers antenna. DO NOT CUT IT OFF! I have have been to houses that the homeowners complained about the remote control only working when they get really close to the door. When you cut the wire you alter the frequency of the remote control, and have to replace the logic http://bit.ly/1oHl9iu board. The logic board can cost anywhere from 85.00 up to 100.00 depending on your area. Oh, the prices i just quoted didn't include labor.

Now, for the programing part you have been waiting for. Hold down the square or round learn button that is on your opener for about 20 seconds. This clears any other remote controls that may have been in the machine. NOTE: If you loose your remote control, or, if you are going thru a divorce, you need the clear the opener so that unwanted http://www.garagedoorrepairapplevalley-ca.us/ people can no longer have access to your house. Another tip..... when you go to have your car serviced make sure you keep your remote control with you!

The reason i say this, is not because i am saying car dealerships or repairmen are crooks, but, there are exceptions to every rule. When you go to get your vehicle repaired you give the people your name, address, and your remote control. I know of one problem where a customer dropped off her Mercedes to be worked on and the mechanic had her address, and took her remote control, and went to her house that night and stole her car. Just stick it into your pocket until you get your car back.

Ok, once cleared, you take each remote control, and go to the back of the opener where the learn button is. Hold the remote control button down, and push and release the learn button. You should hear a click, and the lights on the machine may come on for a split second. When this happens, the remote control is programmed. Continue this process until all remotes are programmed. Note: The opener will only hold five remote controls, or, four remote controls and one keyless entry.

I hope this helped. Keep checking my hubs, my next one will deal with programing your car remote control to the opener.

Remember: Its good luck to shake hands with a sweep!



Broken Garage Door Spring - What To Do?

Now that you know what type of spring you have, you need to purchase new ones.

Step 4 - Installation

Most people don't have the time or inclination to replace their broken garage door spring themselves. I myself have way too much to do elsewhere in my house than fiddle with something that could potentially maim me. That's why I called a chicago garage door repair company to come handle the job.

A torsion spring runs across a bar at the top of the inside of the garage door. The spring is wound and under immense tension. It's the tension of the torsion spring that lifts the weight of the garage door.

So your garage door spring is broken and you need to get to get to work or get the kids to school. Of all the luck, you think, this had to happen to you today. You may feel like your the first person this has happened to, but garage door springs are one of the most called on repairs in the garage door industry.

Extension springs are on either side of the door, perpendicular to it. These springs act like big, steel rubber bands, stretching as the garage door is lowered. The natural tendency of the stretched spring is to lift the door.

Where do you buy garage door springs? You can find them at your local hardware store such as Home Depot or Ace Hardware, or online. Prices will vary from a few dollars to over $150, depending on the type of spring, size, quality, coating, and cycles. The last three are important to consider as they will determine how soon your going to need to replace your springs again.

Step 2 - Identify Your Spring

First, you probably need to get your car out of the garage. Pull the red emergency release cord located above the door to enable you to manually lift the door. Be careful, the garage door will be heavier since the spring is what renders the door weight neutral. If it's too difficult to open yourself have a neighbor or a family member help you. If you accidentally drop the door while lifting it DO NOT try to stop the door with your foot. A 300 pound wall dropping on your foot is going to ruin your day.

Step 3 - Buy New Springs

Next identify which type of garage door spring you have: Extension or Torsion.

You'll want to replace all of your garage door springs at the same time. Why? Typically garage door springs are installed at the same time. Having undergone similar aging and weathering, one broken garage door spring is a sign that the second one will soon break too. Of course you could wait until the other spring breaks but then you'll need to go through the hassle of repairing a broken spring again. Additionally, having a new and old spring on your garage door throws off the balance of the door. You'll quickly burn out the motor on your garage door opener and have more problems.

It's early in the morning and you're fast asleep. Suddenly, a loud noise wakes you. Climbing out of bed you search for the source, but finding nothing wrong you return to your warm bed. It isn't until later that morning when, entering your garage to leave the house, you see it. The broken spring on your garage door.

If you do decide to tackle the job yourself, please be careful and do full research before starting. An extra hour of reading will more than make up for the frustration and pain if you make a mistake. Good luck!

Torsion and extension springs exert a force equal to the weight of your garage door. This counter balances the 200 to 300 pound garage door http://garages.about.com/od/garagemaintenance/a/Garage-Door-Repairs-And-Maintenance.htm rendering it weight neutral so it can be easily opened. If your garage door springs break you can still manually open the door, you just need to exert that much more force to open it.

Garage door springs support the entire weight of the garage door. The springs are wound or stretched under pressure, tightening and loosening as you close and open the garage door. It's the garage door springs, not the garage door opener, that supports and lifts the 300 plus pounds of weight of the garage door.

Like anything else under pressure, eventually your springs will break. Don't worry, you aren't the first person this has happened too. Garage door springs break all the time, and especially now that it's getting colder out

So what do you now? Read on!

Repairing Your Garage Door Springs - The 4 Step Processes

Step 1 - Get your car out of the garage

This is too complicated. I don't have time for this!


Installing your new garage door springs is not only a lengthy and complicated process, but potentially dangerous. Remember, garage door springs are wound and under tension. You need to make sure you have the right tools before you even begin the job. A few of them you'll need are:

two 10 inch vise gripsadjustable wrenchtwo 1/2" x 18" winding barsladderragrulersocket wrench and socketsgood lightingsafety glasses

Now the process of actually going about changing the springs is, as you'd imagine, very detailed. And as it's a serious job I don't want to summarize it here into bullet points. In a future post, I will go into explaining the actual steps, but for now a quick Google search will pull up some great step by step tutorials. Be warned, this job is very serious and requires a good deal of time and patience. These springs are wound under pressure, you don't want to rush through or do it haphazardly.

Philly warehouse fire hits Mummers Parade band

PHILADELPHIA A huge warehouse fire that erupted Monday might have destroyed elaborate floats and props slated for use in the city's annual New Year's Day parade, event participants said.

Several explosions were reported at the three-story industrial garage in a largely residential area of South Philadelphia, Fire Department Commissioner Lloyd Ayers said.

It took more than 100 firefighters almost four hours to get the four-alarm blaze under control, reports CBS Station KYW.

An elderly neighbor was taken to a hospital and was reported in stable condition.

The cause of the fire had not been determined.

KYW reports that the warehouse owner had previously been cited for operating an auto repair shop in the building, a violation of the zoning code, Department of Licenses and Inspections spokeswoman Maura Kennedy said.

Records also indicate owner Joe Sigismondi has several tax liens against him dating back to 1995.

Firefighters were still pouring water on the building at 2nd and Wharton Streets several hours after the first flames were reported, as members of the Fralinger String Band waited to survey the damage from the blaze.

The band is one of many clubs that participate in the Mummers Parade each January 1st - a century-old tradition often described as Philadelphia's Mardi Gras, with thousands of performers dressed in fancy costumes adorned with sequins and feathers.

Mummers rehearse the musical numbers for months and put thousands of hours of labor into their extravagant outfits, set and props - much of which, in Fralinger's http://ow.ly/10qsQH case, may have gone up in smoke.

Fralinger Chairman Steve Coper said the band, which has placed first several times in recent years, still plans to march on New Year's Day. "No question," he told KYW.

Other Mummers clubs have volunteered to help replace whatever has been lost, said Coper, and the band is collecting donations through its website.

"Replacing this is going to be very difficult for us in 21 days," Coper said. "We're very anxious to assess what's salvageable."

"We have our fingers crossed hoping http://www.abcgaragerepair.com/ that it's just minimum," said Thomas D'Amore, captain of the Fralinger String Band. "I'm sure there's some damage we're going to have to take care of."

D'Amore says once they find out what's left of their prized possessions, his organization plans to hold a fundraiser for those in the neighborhood who have lost much more.

The Next Giant Leap For Mankind


It's half full because NASA is returning to what Cernan calls the romance of space: dramatic human missions to other worlds.

"A lot of people don't understand. They say, 'Why can't we go to the moon, we've already been there.' Well, we can't really roll up the garage door and dust off the Saturn V rockets. That whole infrastructure was dismantled after the Apollo program," says Dr. Rick Gilbrech, NASA's exploration chief.

To make it scientific fact, the United States needs to first visit familiar terrain - the moon.

The decision to dismantle Apollo and to cancel possible future trips to places like Mars was made during the Nixon era. Dr. Mike Griffin, NASA's current director, says that was wrong. "It has to rank as one of the colossal mistakes in history," he says.

And that mistake, Griffin says, led to the Space Shuttle, which he believes doesn't generate as much excitement http://www.fortworthoverheaddoors.com/ because it never leaves the Earth's orbit. Griffin says Americans are bored by the space program because NASA has run a boring space program. The Space Shuttle will finally be retired in two years. In its place will be the new exploration program called "Constellation."

This segment was originally broadcast on April 6, 2008. It was updated on July 25, 2008.

NASA is serious, very serious, about launching the most difficult mission ever attempted by the human race: putting an astronaut on Mars. The voyage will cover hundreds of millions of miles and take two-and-a-half years for the roundtrip. It sounds like science fiction.

"When I came back from the moon in '72, [I] stood on my soapbox and said, 'We're not only going back to the moon, we're gonna be on our way to Mars by the turn of the century.' I believed it with my whole heart. But my glass has been half empty for the last 30 years. Now, it's half full."

From the mountains of Utah to the factory floors of Cleveland, from the space center in Houston to the marshes of Virginia, spacesuits are being tested, rockets are being fired, and capsules are being designed. The United States is once again aiming to launch astronauts to the moon and yes, even, to Mars.

"What's impossible? What can't we do if we wanna do it badly enough?" asks Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon. He calls his trip on Apollo 17 a visit to God's front porch. He says anything seemed achievable in those days.

There is no question Mars is the ultimate goal, but why return to the moon? Why not go straight to Mars?

What will propel the astronauts is the new Ares rockets, but they won't be ready until 2015.

It's been nearly 40 years since Neil Armstrong took one giant leap for mankind and almost as long since the American public was truly captivated by the space program. You may not know it, but as 60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon first reported this spring, the journey to send humans back to the moon and beyond has already begun.

Copyright 2008 CBS. All rights reserved.

"If we didn't have a moon, we would. And we could. But it would be much riskier," Griffin says.

3-year-old killed by garage door: ‘All it takes is a second’

While the girls father and mother are being comforted by friends and family, the reaction of neighbors range from You just have to trust in God to it should not have happened. It was a total accident.

The three-year-old girls mother who had heard the garage door but saw no one coming in rushed to the garage and found her little girl just after 4 p.m. on Friday. The little girl was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

As the World News reporter says, All it takes is a second.

The fact that a little three-year-old was killed by a garage door might be an important reminder for everyone http://dreamgaragedoorhouston.com/ to investigate ones garage door safety sensor and to see if it is placed and functioning properly. Dust on the sensor eye can be the simple cause for a malfunctioning sensor.

The three-year-old girl that was killed by the garage door while her mother was home, had wandered off, pushed the garage door button, and tried to crawl underneath the garage door while it was closing. When the garage door came down, it actually pinned the three-year-old girl and ended up asphyxiating her, reported NBC Washington on April 6, 2013.

Watch video below

YouTube, Tina Burgess

According to the World Wide News video report, investigators are trying to determine whether the garage door safety sensor was placed correctly and whether it was functioning properly.


Since the safety sensor did not save the life of the little three-year-old girl in the 2900 block of Eutaw Forest Drive in Waldorf in Maryland, authorities are investigating whether the garage door safety sensor caused the girls death or whether the little girl was small enough to crawl underneath the sensor and not activating it.

Garage door safety sensors are usually placed six to seven inches above the ground and, if working properly, should keep the garage door from coming down if someone or something is in the way.

How to Organize a Linen Closet - Linen Storage Ideas


Step 1 Figure out what needs to be in this space.

Next are those odd sheets, usually the fitted ones are worn out but maybe the top sheet is in good shape, but not part of a set anymore, if you do a lot of painting in your home or need quick coverage, these sheets can come in handy for drop sheets for any project. We keep old sheets in a plastic bin in the basement with painting supplies.

Free Standing Linen Storage

If you simply do not have a closet dedicated to sheets and towels, then consider purchasing a free standing unit that can house baskets for your supplies that can sit in the back of the bedroom closet or even on its own as a piece of furniture. If your space is small then something like this can be used for a storage unit for many other things as well, but you could dedicate each shelf/basket to separate items such as towels (roll them up for easier storage) sheet sets (if you dont have a large home then maybe you only need a spare set of sheets for one bed, so this will not take up much room in a basket)

Shelf Dividers

I find these to be a great way to stop piles of sheets and towels and other smaller items from falling over and becoming one big mess. If you have the width in your line closet or maybe you need to share a larger bedroom closet, then you can separate things out with these adjustable dividers. You could roll larger bath towels to make storing easier.

When we downsized and the kids moved out, I was left with a very full linen closet stuffed with sheets and towels and many odd pillow cases. This hall closet had been stuffed with many items that didnt even belong in there.

Do you need to keep towels and bed sheets as well as bathroom supplies? Once you have decided what needs to live in this spot, then you can decide the type of container you need. Below are some great linen storage ideas that may help you out.

If you have had piles of sheets and towels tumble out of your linen storage closet or space, then maybe it is time to get it organized. This will not only give you an idea of what you own but will stop you from purchasing too many more! I had unexpected guests one weekend, and couldnt find a set of matching sheets for the spare bed. I ended up with a pile on the floor while I looked through them. If this sounds familiar then maybe it is time for a bit of organizing.

You dont have to spend much but there are options you can get online that may work for you or maybe you have some containers around the house that will help keep like with like

Step 2 Haul it all out.

Every last piece and every last towel and then clean the shelves or cover them in MacTac or something similar to keep the shelves clean and smooth.

These dividers make it so that you can use the height of each shelf without fear of falling over so it actually makes the space more user friendly.

Hanging Organizer for the Closet

If you dont have shelves or a separate linen space, and you can spare some room in a closet, then you can make use of the vertical space by hanging a portable shelving unit. This doesnt take up much width but does have a few shelves that you can use for towels, and sheets and even bathroom supplies. This stops that pile from forming on your closet floor or shelf.

Shelving Unit to Organize a Shelf

This is a free standing unit but can be used to make use of the vertical space in your linen closet. It can be used anywhere, but if you have the width then you can sit this on a shelf and create instant storage or lots of items. You could roll up towels and keep sets of sheets all on one shelf. This is a fast way to create instant shelving as some hall closets do not have very many shelves installed. It looks good when you open the door as well which is a plus if you are selling your house, because, yes, people will open the doors!

Stacking Baskets

These are a great fall back item. They are perfect for anything that needs to be stored, but especially the smaller items. If you keep your toilet paper and soaps and other bathroom supplies in here as well then this is perfect leaving space for the towels and sheets, and this way you know what you have with just a glance. You can stack these to use the vertical space either on the shelves or even the floor of the linen storage closet.

Dollar Store

Dont forget to check out the dollar store for storage ideas. If you budget is very small you can find all kinds of cool containers that could be used to separate the items. The video above gives you some ideas for line storage ideas, but dont forget you dont have to spend a lot of money to keep this area clear. Just get creative with containers you own or check out the dollar store, or online as there is just so much to choose from.

I realized that it didnt really take too much effort to organize it, and what better time than when we first moved in. But even if you are not moving in the near future, this space can become cluttered so quickly as we hurriedly put clean towels and sheets on top of a pile on the shelves and then http://aagaragedoor.com/ slam the door shut, meaning to fix it later.

Put sets of sheets together in a pile for now, you can fold later as you put away, then make a pile for sheet sets that you dont need any more, maybe the kids beds are gone now, these can be donated.

When it came time to move I donated many items, but there was still too much clutter for my new hall linen closet in a much smaller older house. As I looked at the items, I realized I didnt even own the beds anymore that many of these sheets belonged too!

Step 3 Keep, Donate or Sentence to the Painting and Renovation Pile
