A simple pasta with garlic and olive oil can blow you away. • Don’t forget the pizza crusts—take one out of the freezer and turn on the oven. By the time you figure out what to put on it, it will be ready to go and so will the oven. Appetizer or main, it works for both. 6. CLEAN AS YOU GO.

So while the water is boiling, clean the counter.

Electric leaf blowers are quieter and more environmentally friendly, and work just as well as gas-powered models. • Vacuum leaf shredders are great if you want to compost or bag the leaves and need to compress them into the smallest volume possible. • A proper rake can significantly reduce the amount of time you spend raking. Use a standard-width twenty-four-inch rake equipped with a soft grip.

Before the first open house, open all your windows for a full eight hours. No one wants to move into your bathroom, so freshen it with a new shower curtain and toilet seat, and buy some new towels.

Sometimes simply updating the cabinet knobs and drawer pulls makes all the difference.
