Labor Day Weekend is Coming Up!

Labor Day Weekend is coming up! It’s not only a time to take a break; it’s also a time to reflect on the social and economic achievements of the hard working Americans in the past and present. So relax, clear your mind, and have some fun!

Riverside, California offers plenty to do for the outdoor lovers, like heading out to the Hidden Valley Nature Center! There’s access to 25 miles of alluring hiking and equestrian trails. It’s great for those who want and need to get away from the lights and sounds of the city. There’s also the Riverside Art Museum, which is always something fun and educational for the family. There are interactive exhibits as well for the kiddos! Sometimes though, you just need to make a staycation out of your weekend and stay at home! Pull the grill out, invite some family and friends over, and enjoy a good meal together.

Regardless of what you choose to do with your holiday, have a very safe and fun weekend!

How To Throw An Academy Awards Party

The Oscars are this Sunday, February 28th at 5:30pm PST and if you have been waiting since Titanic for Leonardo DiCaprio to win his Academy Award for Best Actor, 2016 may finally be the year. If you are planning to host a party of get together with friends, here are a few tips for throwing a great event.

 

 

Champagne: you can never go wrong with a nice glass of champagne. So even though its late on a Sunday, and most people have work the next day, serve the bubbly to a bit of extra class to your event.

 

Name that movie: everyone loves to test their movie knowledge, so play a fun game before the ceremony even begins. Write a quote from each nominated movie on an index card and challenge your guest to “Name that Movie”

 

Fantasy Oscars: take the fantasy football craze and turn it on its side with fantasy Oscars. Let each person “draft” movies until most of the nominated films are off the board. Each film receives a point for every award they win. Add up all the points at the end of the night and see who comes out on top.

Know the rules: every city has a various set of regulations for construction crews working in residential area. The most common of which is work cannot be done before 7am and after 5pm. Visit your local city has and find out other regulations.

 

Create a quiet room: sometimes construction work follows every regulation in the book, but the noise is still unbearable. If that is the case, try to create a quiet room by hanging heavy curtains, or cover your window with a foam bed topper—anything to reduce the noise.

Security Deposits: How to get them back

Once you move out of an apartment getting your security deposit back can be a nice financial addition that you weren’t necessarily expecting.

Here are a few tips.

Clean, clean, clean: once you are ready to move, get out the mop and bucket and a little elbow grease and give everting a detailed cleaning. However, do not worry about normal wear and tear on the carpet, walls or anywhere else. Renters will not be dinged for that.

 

Take trash: many apartments will charge a disposal fee for any large items left in the apartment. So check the balcony, patio and closets to make sure you are not leaving anything behind.

 

Know your rights: if you do not get your deposit back, landlords are supposed to provide a detailed letter in writing by law. So be sure to get one if they are withholding any bit of your deposit.
