TECH RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE INSIDE OF THE HOME
You can update your home by installing a smart thermostat. I recommend ecobee’s Smart Thermostat with voice control. It seamlessly regulates your home's temperature while reducing its energy consumption, helping you save money while keeping you cool and comfortable during the hot summer months. Easy to install and even easier to enjoy, ecobee learns and adapts to your routine for comfort when you’re home, and reduced energy use when you’re away. It can save consumers up to 23% on cooling costs, which is something we can all appreciate. The ecobee Smart Thermostat costs just under $250. For more infomation, visit www.ecobee.com

ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR HANDY PRODUCTS
My wife and I are always moving pictures around and redecorating our space, but man, I hate feeling like the nails wont up the heavy items.  I just found the 3M ™CLAW Drywall Picture hanger. It goes into drywall with no tools or studs, and hangs items up to 45 pounds. It’s been a great solution to all of my problems because it makes hanging those heavy art projects easy. It only takes a simple push of your thumbs, so you can do it by yourself. Ditch your measuring tape and level and use the Spot Marker to get the right placement with ease.  A little new décor can go a long way to freshen up a space.
