Tips For Saving Money On Keeping Your House Warm

Your 2016 years earning plan: STEP -BY-STEP

The fact that it is difficult to keep a house warm without spending loads of money is one of the biggest problems people can deal with during the winter - and while it is, of course, important for you to have a house that is comfortable to be in, it is also important that you are able to make your house comfortable without going broke; for this reason, it is extremely useful to know a few of the things you can do to save money on keeping your house warm.

The fact that the heat people pour into their house ends up rushing outside is one reason why many people spend a lot more money than they should have to on keeping their house warm, being replaced by cold air. If you want to get the most out of the heat you are paying for, take the time to seal off the edges of your windows during the winter, and even consider sealing off your back door during the winter if you do not use it often.

Putting your heater on a schedule is another great way to save money on heating your house during the winter, so that you are not always paying so much to heat the house when you are not even home; for instance, if you feel that 70 degrees is the perfect temperature for your house, set your thermostat so that it keeps the house at about 65 degrees when you are gone during the day, and so that it only jumps up to 70 a bit before you are due to return home!

And consider picking up a few room heaters that you can use, in order to really keep your heating bills down; this will not work if you live in a large house, as you will spend more on electricity for these heaters than you would on heating your house normally, but if you have a smaller house (or if you spend the majority of your time in one room when you are at home), pick up a room heater, and watch as your heating bill starts to drop!

How To Stay Safe On A Road Trip

Your 2016 years earning plan: STEP -BY-STEP

In addition to being plenty of fun, a road trip can also be more dangerous than many people imagine; most people think of a road trip as being no more dangerous than driving from one side of town to the other, but because of the manner in which your focus can slip and your mind can drift, it is important to know exactly what you should do in order to keep yourself safe on a road trip. Of course, each person will find that there are different things that work for them - keeping them focused, awake, and alert - but as you fiddle with a few things that will work for you, here are some things that will be helpful for you to keep in mind.

Plenty of road trippers try to drive from gas stop to gas stop, and this is the only time they get out of the car and walk around; they do this because they assume this speeds the trip along, but you should actually plan to stop at least once every two hours so you can get out and walk around, as this will keep you awake - which is far more important!

Also, you ought to consider stopping for short naps whenever you get tired, instead of just loading up on more caffeine; you can usually nap safely at rest stops during the day, and you can nap safely at most well-lit travel stops at any time of day or night.

And one often-neglected area of road tripping is the prudence of slowing down at nighttime; when you are on a long road trip, the last thing you want to do is hit a deer or another animal and injure your car and yourself - so slow down at night, and keep your eyes peeled!

When you are going to be driving long distances, keep your eyes open for things you can do to keep yourself awake and alert, and as you uncover the things that work for you, keep these three things in mind as well!

Gaining New Readers As A Writer

Your 2016 years earning plan: STEP -BY-STEP

When you are trying to find success for yourself as a writer, one of the most important things for you to do (in fact, one of the most essential things for you to do!) is to be able to build a readership – finding people who will be loyal to you as a writer, and who will both purchase your book and tell others to purchase your book whenever it comes out. Back before the expansion of technology, writers had to rely on old-fashioned word of mouth in order to get the word out about their book, but nowadays, word of mouth can spread through a lot of different avenues, and making inroads in these avenues will be a big part of finding success as a writer.

Twitter is an excellent tool for you if you are wanting to connect and "interact" with readers; if you set up a Twitter account that focuses on writing (and writing-related issues and ideas), you will be able to connect with many others who have similar interests, and many of these same people may become loyal followers of yours.

Running a blog takes a little bit more time than using Twitter, but if you take the time and effort to put together a good blog – something that is informative, engaging, and entertaining – it will also be more effective than if you were to simply use Twitter.

Using Goodreads is another wonderful way to start building a bit of an audience with your writing; Goodreads is a social networking site with books at the center, and as you connect with other readers whose interests are similar to yours, you will also begin to stumble upon readers who are interested in reading your work.

If you take these steps toward building a readership long before you ever have a book that you are trying to sell, you will already have the readers in place when it comes time to release your book to the world – and you will reap the benefits of these seeds you have sown, as it will be much easier for you to land a publishing deal, and it will be much easier to sell copies of your book as well!

How To Deal With A Disobedient Cat

Your 2016 years earning plan: STEP -BY-STEP

One of the toughest things for many peopl to do is get their cat to obey - after all, dogs tend to be extremely compliant as long as you get started training them early on, but cats are a whole different animal (both literally and figuratively!), as they tend to want to do things their own way; while it certainly is true that cats are more difficult to train than dogs, however, it is not true that they are impossible to train, as you simply need to know a few specific things in order to get your cat to obey!

Showing your cat who is boss is one of the big things for training a cat, as cats tend to get it in their heads that they are in charge of everything; when a cat is a kitten, their mother will carry them around by the scruff of the neck, and although you may not feel comfortable picking your cat up this way, holding onto the scruff of their neck (even when you are simply petting them every once in a while) can go a long way in letting them know that they are not the one in charge.

Just as you would do with a dog (or even with a young child), you will want to make sure the cat realizes they are "in trouble" when they indulge in bad behavior; there are several ways to do this (and it can be different for different cats), but the main thing is for you to find something that your cat dislikes - such as being sprayed with water, or having some sort of noise-maker shaken in front of them - and to do this to your cat when they are doing something they are not supposed to be doing.


And also in the same way you would handle a dog (or even a young child), you will want to reward your cat for good behavior as well; this can be a bit more difficult to do, as it can be tough to find a treat that your cat likes, but once you have found one, use this to reward your cat for good behavior! As you do these things more often, your cat will start doing the things you want them to do more and more often - until this good behavior eventually becomes habit for your cat!

Working On A Long-Term Project

Your 2016 years earning plan: STEP -BY-STEP

For many people, one of the most difficult things in school or at work is knowing how to tackle a long-term project; of course, most people approach a long-term project thinking that they will work on it a little bit at a time each day until the project is complete, but this plan often evaporates, until the deadline for the project is right around the corner and they have not worked on it at all - and it is for this exact reason that understanding how to properly conquer a long-term project is so important!

When faced with a long-term project, the first thing you should do is break the project down into sections, and then separate these sections into even smaller pieces; take a bit of time to estimate exactly how long each of these smaller pieces will likely take to complete, as this will give you a good feel for how much time you will need to spend on the project as a whole (and make sure you are overestimating rather than underestimating, as it is better to have some extra time left over than to not have enough!).

With the project broken down into sections in this way, you will be able to set a deadline for when you should have each section completed; once you have "due dates" set for each section, you will be able to take a closer look at your calendar and decide when you will work on the smaller pieces that will build up to the completion of the section.

And at this point, one problem a lot of people face is that they fail to look at their self-set deadlines as if they are real deadlines; while you are certainly not required to turn in your work at these self-created deadlines, you need to realize that these deadlines are important to you if you hope to complete the project on time - so as you work toward these deadlines, treat them as if they were assigned for the project itself, as this will encourage you to keep up with them and complete the project on time.

As you apply this approach more often, you will become better and better at taking care of long-term projects - and there is no better time to get started on this approach than the next time a long-term project comes your way!

Tips For Making A Great Sandwich

Your 2016 years earning plan: STEP -BY-STEP

Some people go through years of their life thinking they do not like sandwiches, simply because they have yet to experience a truly great sandwich. Sandwiches are easy to make, easy to bring with you, and relatively inexpensive, which makes them great for anyone who adores them. Sandwiches are great for lunch, for snacks, and - if you know how to make a really mean sandwich - they're great for dinner as well! If you thought that there is nothing more to the sandwich than just throwing some meat on some bread, it is time for you to think again.

The most important foundational block of a sandwich is the quality of the materials you use to make it. You will spend a bit of extra money shopping at a store such as Whole Foods for your sandwich materials, but this bit of extra money will make a big difference in taste. Organic bread and organic meats taste much fresher and fuller than anything you can buy that has been overprocessed and underpriced. The taste of your sandwich will also be much improved if you go with organically grown vegetables when you construct your daily masterpiece.

Sandwiches can sometimes be dry, which means that it is also important to consider what you are using to moisten your sandwich. A good sandwich goes down easy instead of sticking to the inside of your mouth; whether you use something as simple as mayo or salad dressing or something more complex, figure out the way you prefer to moisten your sandwich.

And of course, it is important for you to know exactly what flavors go well together if you want to construct a great sandwich. It might seem silly to buy a sandwich cookbook, but once you delve into the treasure chest of a book such as 'wichcraft: Craft a Sandwich into a Meal--And a Meal into a Sandwich, you will surely understand.

Regardless of whether you use sandwiches for lunch, snacks, or even for dinner, they can be a great addition to your eating pleasures; first, however, you have to learn and understand what it takes to make a great sandwich!
