By now, I'm pretty good at seeing our home through a potential buyer's eyes and then decluttering, depersonalizing, and pumping up the dream factor. Having said that, we've brought in a stager every time and I would continue to do it. They have a professional design eye, as well as a creative approach to solving problems I'd stopped seeing...even if it's just a matter of optimizing how a room looks. I'll happily put my attachment and ego to the side and take every advantage we can get in this competitive market!

My boss says that used coffee grounds around her potatoes keep the potato bugs off of them. She also uses stove ashes as a sort of fertilizer. She plants everything according to date/moon/Farmer's Almanac every year and her results are usually really good. I've also heard that human hair clippings around a garden will keep the deer away. I've known people to ask a hairdresser to collect a day or two's worth in a bag for them.

Hair is best if it's not freshly washed. When I was young (we had a garden in the country among our farm crops) we used marigolds planted at the end of each row and human hair collected from brushed over the course of the year and kept in a baggie until use...the point is to keep human smell near the plants even when you're not around. Time for me to dig up all those garden memories though as we're attempting our first in-ground planting this year (fingers crossed).
