Minimalism is a trend that has sweeping through the country with people tossing out their old cd albums and that guitar they haven't touched in 2 years. Want to make a little money while "clearing out" your house. Decluttr gives you a place to make some money for the stuff you'd throw in the dumpster.

7. Blue Apron
I, like many, have 3 go-to meals that I have been cooking for 20 years! Having watched 2,000 episodes of cooking shows, I wanted to broaden my culinary horizons. I came across Blue Apron after hearing about it on a podcast. A rotating, international menu comes to your front once a week with 3 simple 30 minute meals!
For those of you who couldn't bother making your own meals and don't want greasy pizza to arrive at your front door. You have options. Apps like grubhub allow you to choose from dozens of various, local establishments with a small delivery fee! Plus no dishes to clean!
Rushing out for the weekend with friends and family? Hotel is booked. Car Rental is set up. Tickets to the big show are downloaded. But Fido is wagging his tail a you. DogVacay has you covered here! Pet-loving experts will take care of your 4 (or 2) legged friends while your out of town!
Who wants to get commute across town next time you have an achy back. Avoid this by booking your very own personal, professional masseuse with zeel at a reasonable price(tip included!) Give it a try next time you need to unwind from work (and traffic)!

Thank you all for your help!
Colleen, Paul and Elena,
Thank you for all of your help in selling my brother’s house at 1008 Becker. Penny Farrall told me she had located a good realtor for me and she was so on target.
It is hard selling a piece of property that isn’t yours, is filled with stuff and is 2,000 miles away. You all made it so much easier.
Paul – you were spot on with the sales price and marketing. There were so many offers to choose from.
Elena – I appreciated all of your communication with me throughout the process as well as checking on the vacant house from time to time.
Colleen – we had the most interaction with each other over the last several months. I so appreciated your calm, knowledgeable approach as you guided me through the various legs of the journey.
Paul and Colleen Tosello have exceeded our expectations of realtors in every way - in fact, over the course of our experience with them they served as so much more!
We relocated to Keller on a job transfer and chose Paul and Colleen after being referred through the Ramsey network. Almost immediately, we received a call from Paul. He spent 45 minutes on the phone with us genuinely investing in getting to know us and learning what our needs were. We were blown away by how kind and professional he was and committed to them.
We briefly explored the existing home market but ended up building. They expertly guided us through the process, gave us sound advice and made sure the build was a good investment for our family. Over the last year, Colleen has been a tireless advocate in dealing with the builder and our mortgage company.
Colleen did all that while also giving us great advice on many different questions we had about the area and other services (schools, churches, contractors, childcare, etc.). We are incredibly thankful for their professionalism and guidance - we couldn’t have done it without them!
Hands down the best realtor experience we’ve ever had in our 10 (yes, 10) moves! Highly recommend!!
Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
Paul and Colleen were absolutely wonderful. We started our home buying process while living across the country. They both met with us numerous times when we would fly in, over zoom meetings, as well as with our builder. Colleen and Paul know the area inside and out and have helped us (and still are!!) with getting us involved in the community. Absolutely wonderful team. We highly recommend them. We consider them dear to our hearts. Thank you for everything.
