    • Tax Refund? Spend It on Your Home

      According to CNN Money, about eight out of 10 people filing their taxes this year are getting a refund, with the average amount being about $2,800. While it may be tempting to put that money toward an island getaway, an even better way to spend your tax refund is by using it to grow one your biggest investments: your home.

      "While some people may choose a spontaneous purchase with their refund dollars, smart homeowners choose to pay down their debt or invest in a project with solid payback,” says Roger Murphy, president of Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company. “Using refund dollars to enhance your living experience in the kitchen or bath pays off every day. Whether it’s purchasing a much-needed appliance, fixing plumbing issues or replacing an old window, these are enhancements you’ll enjoy continually throughout the year.”

      While Murphy’s company specializes in decorative glass privacy windows, there are many improvements that instantly up your home’s value. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2018 Cost vs. Value Report, which measures the average cost of 21 popular remodeling projects and their average resale value one year later, garage door replacement has the highest ROI at 98.3 percent (up from 85 percent year-over-year). Backyard patio jobs garnered the lowest ROI, at 47.6 percent (down from 54.9 percent year-over-year).

      Nationally, when it comes to renovation ROI, curb appeal still wins. Here are the top five projects with the greatest ROI in the report's "midrange" cost category:

      Manufactured Stone Veneer (97.1 percent ROI)
      - Average Cost: $8,221
      - Average Resale Value: $7,986

      Entry Door Replacement (Steel) (91.3 percent ROI)
      - Average Cost: $1,471
      - Average Resale Value: $1,344

      Deck Addition (Wood) (82.8 percent ROI)
      - Average Cost: $10,950
      - Average Resale Value: $9,065

      Minor Kitchen Remodel (81.1 percent ROI)
      - Average Cost: $21,198
      - Average Resale Value: $17,193

      Siding Replacement (76.7 percent ROI)
      - Average Cost: $15,072
      - Average Resale Value: $11,554

      Before you go on that shopping spree with your check from Uncle Sam, think about how you might spend it on your home instead. You’ll be the beneficiary in the long-run!

    • Financial Stress? It May Be Time to Get Smarter About Money

      Money woes are a reality even for the gainfully employed, say the results of the 2018 Purchasing Power® Financial Stress Survey conducted by Harris Poll. According to the research, over 4 in 5 (87 percent) of those who are employed full-time or have a spouse employed full-time are at least somewhat stressed about their current finances.

      "Although the U.S. economy is healthy and the stock market continues to rise, employees are still stressed about their finances. Many struggle to pay their household bills because financially-fragile employees don't necessarily benefit from these trends," explains Purchasing Power President Scott Rosenberg.

      The survey also revealed that 39 percent of full-time employees feel that their financial stress level increased over the past 12 months; 46 percent said it stayed the same; and 16 percent report that it decreased.

      Of those who reported their stress level had declined in the past 12 months, 57 percent said an increase in their household income contributed to that decrease; 50 percent indicated they had decreased the amount of their expenses (such as paying off balances and eliminating unnecessary services/activities) and 20 percent revealed they had used financial tools to help better budget their money.

      For those experiencing financial stress, a lack of financial literacy and poor financial habits is often at the root of the problem. Check out the following survey results:

      Main Causes of Financial Stress

      • Household bills are the major reason cited for causing financial stress:
      • Household bills (e.g. mortgage/rent, utilities and transportation) - 47 percent
      • Lack of funds to cover unexpected expenses (e.g., car repair, home repair) - 43 percent
      • Retirement planning (e.g., little or no retirement savings, no post-employment plan) - 37 percent
      • Healthcare expenses (e.g., deductibles, prescription costs, medical bills) - 34 percent
      • High credit balance - 30 percent
      • Accumulating credit card debt - 29 percent
      • Lifestyle changes (e.g., loss of/decrease in household income, family addition, increase in household occupants, elderly care) - 25 percent
      • Education (e.g., tuition, daycare fees, student loan payments) - 21 percent 
      Unexpected Expenses
      Respondents also pointed to stress caused by unexpected expenses in the past 12 months. Some of the most common ones included:
      • Vehicle repair/replacement - 57 percent
      • Medical - 43 percent
      • Home repairs (such as roof, boiler, siding) - 40 percent
      • Replacing/upgrading major home appliance that stopped working - 29 percent
      • Travel (funeral, visit sick relative, unexpected move) - 18 percent 
      These employees were also asked how they paid for the unexpected expense they incurred in the past 12 months. They reported using the following methods:
      • Credit card - 49 percent
      • Emergency savings - 31 percent
      • Money they planned to use for other household bills - 30 percent
      • Cash - 23 percent
      • Borrowed from family/friends - 13 percent
      • Took out a loan (payday, title, home equity) - 13 percent
      • Debit card - 13 percent
      • Sold something (jewelry, electronics, car) - 9 percent
      • Borrowed from retirement savings (401K, IRA) - 7 percent
      Of course, one of the best ways to start reducing financial stress is to start or increase your savings, no matter how small. Talk to a financial advisor to come up with a plan for reducing expenses and adding a nest egg to help alleviate the pressure.

    • Wise Ways to Water Your Yard

      Whether you’re in a community with watering restrictions or not, it’s common sense to look for ways to maximize efficiency when watering your lawn and gardens. Rain Bird, a supplier of irrigation products for residential, commercial, golf, and agricultural applications, offers these steps to help you use water wisely:

      • Understand your soil. The soil type in your yard will greatly affect your watering schedule and influence the type of sprinkler you choose.
      • Determine your water pressure. Water pressures vary greatly. If you have high pressure, make sure you install products equipped with pressure-regulating devices, which can save you up to one gallon per minute, per sprinkler.
      • Design a smart landscape. Use drought-tolerant plants when possible. Reserve your use of grass for areas with high value, visual prominence or frequent physical use.
      • Divide your yard into separate zones so groundcover, shrubs and trees can be watered separately and less frequently.
      • Use a rain sensor to automatically shut off your sprinkler system when it rains.
      • Maximize performance by regulating water pressure. Pressure regulation can save up to one gallon per minute, per sprinkler, by delivering the right amount of water to get the job done, without any waste.
      • Prevent puddles. Use sprinklers with pre-installed check valves and low precipitation rates to prevent soggy areas, which can kill landscape or encourage fungus to grow.
      • Use drip irrigation for flower beds and shrubs to deliver the water directly to the base of plants, saving up to 80 percent over watering with traditional sprinklers. Drip irrigation also prevents weeds and encourages healthier plants by watering each plant's root zone, eliminating overspray and evaporation.
      • Use mulch. Applying mulch helps drainage, encourages root development and improves soil by making nutrients more available to plants, while conserving water.
      • Water between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. when the sun is low, winds are calm and temperatures are cool. This minimizes water loss due to evaporation and windy conditions, and helps avoid fungus growth on leaves. Check with your local water provider to see what days and times you’re allowed to water.
      • Break up watering times into shorter segments. Applying more water than the ground can absorb leads to excess runoff.
      • Water less frequently. Deep, infrequent watering will train the plants' roots to grow deeper and more robust.
      • Water only when your plants demand it. If your plant leaves are beginning to curl and your footprints are staying longer than usual, it's time to water. 
      • When in doubt, consult with a landscape professional to come up with the right plan for a water-efficient yard and garden that will stay green and colorful all season long.

    • Taking on a DIY Home Improvement Project? Read This First!

      From painting the den to remodeling the bathroom, many an ambitious homeowner will be embarking on a DIY home improvement project in the coming months. In fact, according to the recently released Coinstar® Do It Yourself (DIY) Home Improvement Survey, 65 percent are tackling a home improvement project on their own in order to save money, and nearly three in five respondents believe it will increase the value of their home.
       
      Projects homeowners plan to take on range from painting a room to a major remodel of a bathroom or kitchen. Regardless of the type and magnitude of the project, nearly nine out of 10 homeowners agree that they feel a sense of pride when completing a DIY activity, and three in four see their home as an extension of their personality. What’s more, nearly half said fulfillment in doing it themselves was the main motivating factor in initiating the project.

      If you’re among the ranks taking on a project yourself, follow the example of the majority of survey respondents, 70 percent of whom will create a budget and use cash on hand to pay for projects, as opposed to the 30 percent who say they've left a project incomplete due to running out of money. According to the survey, 61 percent of respondents plan to spend $500 or more on a home-improvement project this year.

      More than two-thirds of homeowners typically perform DIY projects with someone else in the household, like a family member or significant other. If you’re also teaming up with a partner, beware—65 percent of respondents say they got into a disagreement related to the project.

      Maybe those disagreements arise over how to get the job done—more than one quarter of homeowners surveyed consider themselves unskilled or under-skilled when it comes to home improvement projects. Regardless of skill level, the majority of DIYers learn how to tackle a project by learning online through YouTube videos and using search engines to locate how-to answers. Nearly half (45 percent) report they teach themselves through trial and error, and owner's manuals are still a viable tool with nearly 60 percent of homeowners saying they always read the manual.

      Before you embark on your home improvement project, make sure you’ve budgeted correctly and you’re well prepared on the ins and outs of your project.
