Whether you're new to iPhone or you're on your third or fourth model, I'm willing to wager that there are still plenty of tricks you've yet to learn. It turns out those brains over at Apple have thought up and built a few simple tools and shortcuts to make the things you do every day on your phone a little easier.
This is a “get off my lawn” type of post, when I curmudgeonly grouse about how much things cost, and how we’re being swindled by young punks who don’t know how easy they've got it in today's world. My pet peeve of the day is products that are very inexpensive (or in some cases free) at the outset, but require expensive refills or supplies to keep them item working.
We regularly ask readers to share how much money or time they spend on their home projects. We hope this collective information proves helpful to anyone needing to get a basic sense of how much things costs, how much you can expect to pay for a service, or how often you should be doing something.
As you run a household for a decent length of time, there are certain things that become automatic. Like the shopping list—stuff runs out, you buy it again. But what if you didn't? Could life go on just fine without a few of those things you're always buying at the store? And could you save a little money in the meantime?
Some people prefer hyper-minimal spaces, where vast expanses of concrete and glass are only interrupted by the occasional vase or black and white photography book. But those of your who prefer to have a few extra things around may be excited to hear about the rise of what I call 'good clutter': a look that involves leaving a out (a modicum of) interesting things around your house. The look we're going for is a bit more 'cabinet of curiosities' than 'yard sale'. Here's a little inspiration.
As a houseguest, how much tidying up do you need to do before you leave? I was just looking around on the internet, and one site said to strip your bed, stuff the linens into a pillowcase, and leave it all at the foot of the bed. Really? Then your host has to pull all that back out of the pillowcase in order to stick it into the washer. Should I come downstairs with an armful of sheets? Should I ask for the vacuum so I can suck up every last stray hair in the guest bathroom?
For better or worse, marrying someone also means marrying their style. To see how this commonly plays out, just go shopping with a couple registering for their first bedroom together. (She has a throw pillow addiction, he wants to cut her off at two.) On the other hand, the bedroom-design-dilemma presents the perfect opportunity to put aside your differences and build a shared style. With a little planning, you can co-create a beautiful bedroom that's a space to share your hopes, hash out your problems and dream up your future.
Inspired by the idea that your shared bedroom should be a love story, the Apartment Therapy team made this video, showing how combining styles doesn't have to be a compromise. Watch now, and check out our tips below for building the perfect shared bedroom.
