Super Bowl Sunday… Are You Ready?

January 28, 2015 l Topics:Blogs l By K&N Sales Staff

You face a difficult task this weekend: host an off-the-charts Super Bowl party and keep your New Year’s resolution to eat healthy.  Before the Patriots and Seahawks take the field on Sunday, here are a few tips to help you accomplish both goals.


Invite a few close friends over early to help you set up for the event


Just like the game itself, your party can have its own pre-game show.  It won’t take a big crowd to move a few tables and make sure decorations are in their proper place.  The pre-game show is also a chance to visit with some people before the big game gets started.  Take some time before the party to figure out how best to use your remodeled kitchen.  If time allows, let your guests preview some of your healthy party snacks, like white bean dip.


Don’t hesitate to make the event a potluck


Add some variety to the party by asking guests to bring a special treat from their own kitchen.  Feel free to set a theme. Consider having guests bring items specific to various NFL cities.  Share ideas for healthy snack ideas, like zucchini fries, with your guests.


Keep it simple and low key


Be careful not to set expectations for the party.  Pressure to have “The Party of the Year” can lead to a letdown for everyone.  Just invite some friends over to enjoy the game and some healthy snacks with you.

The Super Bowl is a great event to share with your friends.  Take the time to keep it stress free and healthy, and you and your guests will be the big winners this Sunday.  Contact K&N Sales for assistance in getting your home ready for many super parties and super living.

Consider Downsizing to Increase the Efficiency of Your Storage

January 14, 2015 l Topics:Blogs l By K&N Sales Staff

Your customized cabinetry gives you more space than ever to store your possessions, including those items that you received during the holiday season.  However, you may decide that you are going to kick off the new year by getting organized and using your storage space more efficiently.  If you are considering downsizing, here a few questions to ask yourself as you decide which items you can live without.


When is the last time I used this item?


If you haven’t used an item in over six months, you most likely can live without it.  Make a pile of these items that need to be purged and leave it overnight. If you are still ready to part with the pile the next morning, rest assured that it is expendable.


Do I like it?


Although it is simple, this is a useful question to ask.  If you don’t like something, let it go.  Save the valuable space that you have available for things you actually like.


How much is it worth today?


It is difficult to let go of items that you paid a high price for in the past. If you aren’t getting any value out of such items (tangible or intangible), consider getting rid of them.  The extra space you gain will make it worth it.


What do I do with it?


Items that you don’t have room or need for might be useful to someone else.  Various charities in the area are always looking for useful items for their clients.  A few examples are Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and Houston Children’s Charities.  Also, there may be a local organization that serves your community with a donation-driven thrift store.


Start off the year with a more efficient storage plan.  Look for ways to part with those items that you don’t need any more.  Contact K&N Sales for assistance with your storage needs.
