Whether you are self-employed or telecommute for a company, working from home can be a dream situation. You might set your own schedule, work at your own pace and possibly earn money in your PJs. Of course, people who work from home also deal with more distractions - like easy access to TV. With a television set in close proximity, there’s temptation to catch up on daytime programs instead of focusing on work, which can put you behind schedule. Rather than let TV decrease your productivity and your paycheck, here are a few tips to help you stop watching TV when you work from home. 1. Remove the TV from your home office. Putting a TV in your home office is one of the biggest mistakes you can make, especially if you’re somewhat of a TV addict. Having a TV in this room can provide background noise or background action, helping you feel less isolated. But you’re asking for trouble with a TV only a few feet away. Even if you hit the mute button, something might catch your eye. And… Read more

You might hate being cooped up in the house on the weekends. But at the same time, going out to eat, seeing a movie or doing other activities may put a strain on your budget. So if you’re trying to save money and reach financial goals, you have to get creative when it comes  to your entertainment. The good news is you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a great time. As long as you have a TV in your home, there’s the opportunity to invite a few friends over and all have a great time together. Host your own party next time you're feeling lonely or starved for entertainment - you might just enjoy it more than you think! 1. Know your audience. For a fun movie night, pick a movie everyone can enjoy. The movie you select should be determined by your guest list. If some of your friends prefer action flicks, group these people together for a night of action movies. On the other hand, another group of friends may prefer a romantic comedy.… Read more

Moving day is here! While you might be excited to pack up and head to your new space, you might also have anxiety about safely transporting your belongings in a moving truck. If you’re hiring a professional moving company for the job, this company will likely have the skills and supplies to safely move your items without any breaks. But if you’re moving yourself, you have to figure out packing and moving on your own. Among your top concerns: how to safely move your TV. The bigger your TV, the more difficult it’ll be to transport. But you don’t have to be a professional mover to get your TV from one place to another in one piece. Here are a few tips to make it work. 1. Get a box for the TV. Boxes are essential when packing and moving, but this doesn’t mean that any ordinary box should be used to move your TV. You need a box that’s specifically designed to hold a television during a move. You can purchase these from any moving store, or maybe you… Read more

Nowadays, you can buy just about anything used. Secondhand shopping is perfect if you’re always on the hunt for a deal and you don’t mind a few imperfections. So if you’re in the market for a television, you might consider going the used route. While this approach can save money, there are a few things you should keep in mind in order to avoid getting a raw deal. 1. Do ask the reason for selling the TV. You might feel uncomfortable asking the seller personal questions, such as their reasons for selling the TV. Keep in mind that you’re giving this person hundreds of dollars, so you have a right to know. Some people sell a TV because they’ve upgraded to a larger screen and no longer need the older one. Meanwhile, others upgrade for different reasons, such as poor picture quality or limited features. Granted, some sellers won’t be open and upfront. If you feel they’re hiding something, walk away. And if you do come across a candid seller, seriously consider this reason when determining whether this is the right TV… Read more

Between work, caring for your family and taking care of a home, you might have little time for TV during the day. So what if your favorite nightly routine includes curling up in the bed with the remote before you shut your eyes! Relax any way you can and enjoy those few minutes before you drift off. But - wait a second. If you’re a night owl and your partner is an early bird, watching TV in bed can create problems. The good news is you don’t have to leave the room to enjoy a little TV time! Want to keep late night TV on without disrupting your significant other? No worries! We've got a few strategies you can use to keep the tube on without bothering your partner. 1. Dim the TV brightness. Maybe it’s not the sound of the TV that disturbs your partner, but the brightness coming from the TV screen. Even with their eyes closed, they might detect light, which can make it harder for them to sleep. To strike a compromise, agree to dim the brightness… Read more
