Learning to negotiate with a builder on a newly built home in Las Vegas

My wife and I signed to buy a house 12 hours ago and I’m wide awake at 3:30am tossing and turning not with buyers remorse but with negotiators remorse. I say that because I learned a ton doing this transaction that I wish I had known before our negotiation yesterday, and though I got a pretty […]

Removing Moen Bathtub Valve with a Broken Stem

My wife and I both work full time, and with a 2 year old, we don't have time to clean our house ourselves anymore.  So we hired a local Las Vegas cleaning service (review to come soon) that comes every two weeks to clean our house.  The cleaners love to break things and then balance […]

D-Link DCS-5020L Cloud Wireless IP Camera Review

Trying to save some money a while back, I set up an old iPhone on a mini-tripod for use as a baby video monitor. It worked fairly well but crashed just about every night, making it useless to monitor the baby in the morning before getting out of bed. Plus it didn't work at night […]

Hooks for basket when shopping with baby stroller makes shopping easier

We live a few blocks from the grocery store, and often take the baby for a walk to get food for lunch or dinner.  When  I take the baby by myself, the problem is that it is too difficult to push a cart or carry a basket and push the stroller at the same time. So I went […]

The Cost of Driving to the Store VS Paying for Online Shipping

We all see the price of gas and love to complain about the cost of filling up our tanks.  What's funny though, is that we all detest paying for shipping when ordering online, but will readily drive to the store to buy something. Driving back and forth to the store is in itself a shipping cost. […]

iFixIt iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Kit Review

I recently replaced the battery on my iPhone 5 as my phone would quickly lose power during the day.  When I first got my phone, I could go pretty much a whole day without needing to charge.  And that included taking lots of pictures and video as well as spending time texting and using social […]
