Stainless appliance package

The most popular in appliance package are the Stainless which refers to the expensive STEEL appliances. Not to be confused with the “faux” stainless look. This can easily be tested by placing a magnet on the product if it sticks or not. For refrigerators these days most are larger than the refrigerators years ago. Plan on about $1,000 for this item. Some can be purchases for less, say for instance you are buying them as a package or price comparing.  A 30″ range will be $650.00 and up. I have seen some as high as $1,400 for a confectioner style with all the bells and whistles. $600.00 and up for Dishwasher and count on $300.00 or more for the microwave.

Allot of this depends on basic or all the “bells and whistles” models.

Washer and dryers are ever changing, personally I use 2 or 3 settings so paying for more seems and expense that may not be needed. A steam option in the dryer would be nice, I would pay more for the dryer.

Remember to recycle or donate the old items. As a donation, most churches will come and pick up your item and you get a tax deduction.

Action is Power: Tips for Getting Started

It may be true that knowledge is power, but knowledge without action is not very powerful at all. In fact, it is very common to see talent wasted because no action is taken to produce results. The following are a few tips for taking action, which is perhaps the single biggest key to success, in business and in life.

Don’t over-analyze tasks. Sure you need to think things through, but you can over-think them too. If you worry too much about getting it perfect before implementation, you can lose momentum, lose your window of opportunity, or worst of all…never do it at all.

A good strategy is to be sure your idea is ethical and legal. Then, if you think your chances of success are at least 70%, implement your idea. Successful people tend to make decisions quickly and change them slowly, where many unsuccessful people make decisions slowly and change them quickly. Be a part of the first group and implement your ideas.

Break a large project in to bite-size pieces – your action steps. If a project or plan that you know will improve your business just seems too large or overwhelming, break the plan down into manageable steps. Determine what action needs to be taken first, then go ahead and do it. After all, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. And the same concept should apply for large projects.

Don’t procrastinate. Easier said than done, right? But the truth is, the longer you wait to do something, the less the chance you will ever do it. Rather than putting it on your endless list of “to-dos,” do it right away – right now if possible. You will impress your clients – they will love it! Don’t you love it when you are the customer and you get service right away? You may even impress yourself and start getting into the habit of “doing it right now.”

Believe in yourself and the power of taking action. Did you ever think of a great idea at night, only to talk yourself out of it in the morning? Worse yet, have others talked you out of it, ultimately denying you your dream? Believe in yourself…take chances…go for it. Sometimes we spend so much time thinking about the task that it becomes daunting. Don’t think about it. Go ahead and get started. Just do it!

It doesn’t matter how many great ideas you hear or see. It doesn’t matter how many great plans you come up with for yourself, your business, or your life. What matters is how many of these ideas, plans and dreams you actually put into action and make a reality. Do you have something that’s been on your to-do list for months? Do you have a great idea you’ve been kicking around? Do you know the next push you need to move forward in your career or your life? Grab it right now – don’t wait another day. Take a step, make a decision, put your plans into motion and enjoy the rewarding feeling of having taken action! Information provided by Steve Florio.

Ready For Summer in Cedar City

Get out and take advantage of the warmer weather and sunshine. Here are some ideas on how to keep your new home cool and comfortable, and make the outdoors just as inviting as the indoors. Maybe roll up area rugs will open up and lighten the rooms.  I like to can replace heavy comforters with lighter weight bedspreads in cooler colors to really welcome the summer.  Because it is the season for  ceiling fans and air conditioners make sure those are working.

Also check to see if screen doors are in good shape. Spring and summer are the perfect times for painting or remodeling since you can let the fresh air right in. Bright colors for pillows,  table cloths, candles, pictures, dishware or other accessories. You may also want to consider adding some new outdoor furniture to give your new home a fresh look for the summer. I’m sure you’ll plan on doing a lot more outdoor living, cooking and entertaining. Smaller spaces are not a problem – you can simply use colorful potted plants to create a beautiful outdoor living space in a small garden or courtyard. If you have a deck, you may want to give it a fresh coat of paint or stain, and if you have a pool, you’ll want to remember about maintenance so you can enjoy it all summer long.
