    Spring has arrived early and summer is coming - along with its heat and

    humidity. Summer suns UV rays fade carpets and furniture, and heat

    penetrates through the poorest insulated part of your home your windows.

    As you contemplate air-conditioning usage over the next three months

    and rising energy costs you know steps are needed to keep your home

    comfortable year round at minimal costs.

    Recent surveys among 30 to 64-year-old homeowners show that 96 percent

    of participants said that reducing energy consumption would influence their

    decision to purchase a product. Living Green now makes more sense than

    ever, not only for the environment, but for the impact on your wallet!

    Eclipse Shutters are constructed with cellular louvers and frames, reducing

    the transfer of heat/cold air through windows. (R-value = 3.4 with Dual

    Glazed Low-E window.) Eclipse Shutters will never fade or turn yellow due

    to ultra-violet light or exposure - guaranteed.

    Transform ordinary windows into inspiring new highlights of the home with

    Eclipse Shutters. Choose from a variety of options including three louver

    sizes, five frame styles, four fashionable colours.

    Energy Efficient Easy to Clean 25 Year Warranty

    Did you know? You might be losing 25-50 percent of the energy you put into cooling your home through the windows! Eclipse Shutters are the perfect solution.

    Get organized this springand rev up for summerIts time to freshen up your home, spring clean and conquer clutter. In my neighbourhood, this includes the disposal of your Fraser Fir from Christmas. I noticed several were curbside this week awaiting garbage pickup yikes!

    Now that were warming up to the idea of spring, even if it isnt exactly warm outside, its time to unleash the power of de-cluttering, cleaning and general maintenance around your home. Cleaning and de-cluttering is serious business. Once you get into cleaning mode, it can be a motivating force to start other projects especially now that you have that extra space cleared.

    For those looking to get in the mood to purge, weve filled this issue with great tips, including five simple steps from professional organizer Rachael Kalinsky that will help you create a calmer home and let the positive energy flow back into the spaces. And dont miss Sara Ducks monumental feature which showcases some of the newest and best products available to help fulfill your innermost organizational desires youll want to have them all!

    Also in this issue a Top 10 list to keep it clean and Green at home year-round from renovator, artist and environmentalist Gordie Wornoff, as well as tips for a Green renovation from Peter Khatami, our fab reno go-to guy. We hope you enjoy this issue and that it gets you up and at em this spring and remember to take down those Christmas lights!
