Great article, I'm sorry this happened to you but thanks for the writing this. Our area was devastated with fires in a drought in 2011. End of story is our neighborhood ended up ok. But when the fires got close, we got ready to evacuate. I spent 30 minutes and opened every cabinet door and took photos (don't forget all the tools in the shed/garage) and uploaded to Flickr. One box got filled with handmade quilts and photos to go with us and it was weird but we were mentally ready to let our house go.

Thank you to audreyhg for reminding everyone of the importance of a public adjuster. I have been a PA for 6 years and take great pride in being able to represent the property owner. Most of my clients would not have been able to make full repairs with the settlements offered by the insurance company. I was able to get them the full amount they needed to bring their property back to pre loss condition. However, everything being written about creating an inventory, taking pictures, scanning or keeping receipts, etc. gives the PA the backup needed to process the claim. A loss in a home is devastating - fighting the insurance company just adds to the aggravation. Take all the advice that's been given !

Have you ever boiled a pan or coffee pot dry and ended up with water marks you can't remove? How about glassware or vintage glass items with hard water stains? Vinegar and baking soda takes it right off! Depending on the size of what you're trying to clean, a stove top Pyrex kettle that holds 1.5 quarts of water takes 1 cup of vinegar and 1 tablespoon of baking soda. Clean with this solution over the sink, it bubbles up.

I have curly hair, which is naturally on the dry side. For that reason, I do not shampoo my hair. When my scalp needs a good cleansing, I mix a bit of baking soda with my conditioner and rinse. Then I use a leave in conditioner - bc baking soda REALLY cleans. :)

I love waking up with the light, but I hate going to bed with the neighbor's porch light. I can't seem to have it both ways. I do have liners on the back of my shades. However, little slivers of light come in the sides, so I know when it's morning.

Yeah, I am anxious to see how the shades work. I assume there will still be a perimeter of light around them anyway... if it's bad I am certainly not opposed to buying curtains for added coverage!

I have blockout curtains but only to keep the warmth in. I much prefer waking up to the sunlight, and certainly don't mind moonlight either. Usually I'll wake up briefly because of it, then roll over and go back to the land of nod.
