Home Window Security Tips

June 8, 2017

Most home owners go to great lengths to secure their homes, building walls, installing CCTV cameras, investing in expensive locks, and so on so forth. However, they forget to secure their windows! 90% of the times a burglar breaks into your home, he or she uses the main door, or the window! As such, thinking about how secure your window is goes a long way in tying any loose ends the intruder may take advantage of. There are a few things you can do in order to ensure that your window plays its role of not just letting in fresh air and light, but also ensures your safety when asleep or away. Let’s start from outside, before coming inside the house;

  • Tip number one is to always ensure that any bushes or hedges around your bedroom are trimmed. Keeping such short will ensure that no intruder can hide there or take advantage to sneak in to your home. Besides, most burglars will jump over perimeter walls and head straight to any overgrown hedge or bush around your compound for cover.
  • Secondly, keep away any bulky items near your window that an intruder can use to pile up and step on, so as to access the window latch. Stones, broken furniture and other junk; keep that far from your windows.
  • Reinforced glass; there are various options for anyone looking for reinforced windows. This includes using laminated glass that’s slightly different from the normal glass. Reinforced glass means that for an intruder to break it, he’d have to keep hitting the same spot over and over; which will create much noise. No burglar wants that.
  • Window bars; using bars on your windows also acts to reinforce them. Even when a burglar has managed to break the glass, the metal grills or bars act as a stopper.
  • Close windows when away; some home owners assume that simply because they have locked the gate and there’s a secure perimeter wall, that’s enough. However, go ahead and lock the windows when going out to work or wherever. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Besides, an open window may attract a burglar who would never consider breaking into your home.
  • Locksmith check; lastly, it makes sense to have locksmiths come over and check all your window locks and latches to ensure that they’re fully functional. Where you need to replace or repair a faulty lock, they’ll advice you.

How To Make A Home Made Studio

0
June 8, 2017

When working on a small or tight budget, there are times you’ll be pressed on getting a studio to work with. Some of the best studios charge an arm and a leg to use their space, even when you have the equipment with you. But that shouldn’t worry you; you can make a temporary home studio to take care of business, at least before you can afford something more permanent. Most graphic designers, advertizing firms and companies; most started small before they could afford the spacious, well equipped studios that they not have. In this article, we’ll guide you on how to put up a homemade studio without digging so deep into your pocket.

There are a few items you’ll require

  1. Your camera (hopefully one with manual settings) and camera tripod
  2. You’ll also need a table top, and a lamp for lighting. You can rely on artificial lighting filtering inside the room, but it’s always safe to have backup artificial lighting.
  3. You’ll also need a smart background either in form of a plain sheet, seamless paper, or a poster board.
  4. Lastly, some office supplies like paper clips, tape, lint roller, etc

With the above items in place, you’re halfway there; not there fully. Ask yourself several questions chief among them, what do you want to shoot? For instance, it could be a photo shoot for models, or a product that you wish to help market; whatever the subject you’re shooting, you’ll need to know in advance so that you set up a proper studio. The good thing is that a homemade Photo studio doesn’t have to be so big. Even a small room measuring 6×6 is good to go; if larger, still no problem. Now, you’re always advised to have the home made studio close to or near a window. This is because you want to take advantage of as much natural light as possible.

Also, leave room for your to and fro movements when holding the camera. Try and have the studio located in a room that won’t inconvenience other home users like your kids or pets. Mind you, the subject may include a serious client or professional models, and clearly, you don’t want to displace your family simply because you wish to have a homemade studio.

A homemade studio won’t just come in handy when you’re on a tight budget; it can also be fun having to work and process your images right from the comfort of your home.

Mumbooks Review

When you have children, you very quickly come to realise what an important role reward systems can play, Mumbucks allows your children to ‘earn’ rewards for good behaviour and trade them in for treats and favourite things. Here at Nursery Trader we have been taking a closer look.

 

“Easy system to use, can be adapted to suit your family, teaches children the value of earning and saving”

“Younger children may find it difficult to understand and take care of”

Nursery Product Review

Mumbucks was created by a mum of 2 young children, who believes in children having clear goals and boundaries. She found that traditional reward systems were effective, but only for a short period of time before the children lost motivation. And so Mumbucks was born. The system teaches children the value of saving and earning, and the reward sheet shows them exactly what is expected of them. Find out more in our Mumbucks review:-

What’s in the box?

Each Mumbucks set contains 82 Mumbucks notes of different denominations, a card wallet and a family reward sheet for you to personalise.

Price

The RRP of Mumbucks is £14.99

Mumbucks – How does it work?

Mumbucks is a simple system to use. It is based around a selection of Mumbucks notes – these come in a variety of values from 1 up to 50. Simply fill in the reward sheet – it states that ‘In this house we earn Mumbucks for’ – then a space for you to write your own list. So, in this house we earn Mumbucks for making beds, getting dressed for school, brushing teeth, being kind to each other, eating all our dinner, sharing toys and saying please and thank you. You can personalise the reward chart to suit your own family – you can sneak in any things that you would like your child to be better at. The Mumbucks can then be saved, and once you have enough you can trade them in for treats or favourite things – think TV time, staying up late, days out or something as simple as a chocolate treat. Whatever works for you and your family. The reward chart can be changed and adapted as your family grows – as the children get older you could consider adding in more household chores – maybe hovering, helping with washing or loading the dishwasher? (Or any other jobs you would like a break from yourself!) The rewards can also be adapted – computer time or a phone call to a friend for older ones? The notes are made of paper, so after a while they may begin to rip or look a bit tatty, so handle with a little bit of care.

 

Mumbucks – Out and about

The beauty of Mumbucks is how simple they are to use anywhere. The card wallet allows you to carry the Mumbucks when you are out of the house, and your children can earn even when they are not at home. Younger children could get a reward for walking beside you, older children could help carry the shopping. The possibilities are endless, and so flexible – whatever works for you. Very young children may not understand this system – they may well get bored before they have ‘saved’ enough for a treat, but the possibility to adapt it may work for you.

 

Mumbucks Conclusion

Mumbucks are a very clever little idea – every parent knows the value of a reward system when it comes to motivating children towards good behaviour. I often mean to make more exciting reward charts and systems for my children, but it is one of those things that goes on the to-do list underneath a million other things. This system takes that stress away – it is always there and can be used anywhere and anytime. My children (aged 5 and 7) are old enough to understand the concept of saving and exchanging for rewards – although I think toddlers and very young children may not understand the system and lose interest quickly, and may rip or tear the Mumbucks. I like how Mumbucks can be personalised to suit any family, and I am fairly sure that most children will be keen to give this reward system a try.
