5 Ways to Keep Your Home Clean During a Remodel

(NewsUSA) - Maybe you're finally updating your 1970s kitchen to one that's more sleek and modern. Perhaps it's as simple as remodeling a bathroom. Whatever the room, home renovations can be pretty hectic and messy.

To get through your renovation, home organization is the key. The following tips should help you stay on top of the chaos.

* Have files for everything. Paperwork should be kept in one place. Inexpensive file folders that are portable can help you stay structured. Create a file for all receipts, and as you post them to a budget, move them to another file labeled "posted." Permits and papers from the city should be kept together. Just for fun, create a folder of design ideas and pictures from magazines to keep you inspired.

* Cover it up. One word: plastic. No, not credit cards. Use it to cover all heavy furniture that can't be moved from the room. This will prevent dust and debris from getting into the cracks and crevices and keep the finish on the furniture looking shiny.

* Keep a list. No matter how good your memory, things are going to fall through the cracks. Hanging a clipboard on a nail in the area you are working in will help you to stay on task about people you need to contact, or things you need to do or buy for the next day.

* Have a place for everything. If you're doing the remodel yourself, there is going to be a certain amount of chaos and upheaval. One thing that will help reduce your stress level is keeping your tools in one place. Create a space, such as a table, where all small tools are kept. The larger tools can sit on the floor under the table. Every time you're finished with a tool, put it back.

* Contain your stress. If you're a person who turns to cigarettes or smokeless tobacco in times of stress, try your best to keep things clean by going outside to smoke or by carrying a portable spittoon. After all, you don't want a fresh burn mark or stain from a spill to end up on your brand new floors. FLASR has created a one-of-a-kind pocket-sized spittoon that allows users to open and shut it with just one hand, making it an ideal solution for taking your snuff, dip or chew into any room that's being renovated. In addition, the Atlanta-based company's spittoon, has an advanced closing mechanism, ensuring that it stays securely closed when not in use, eliminating the risk of spill and leaks often seen with cups and bottles.

CLAREMORE, Okla. – Will Rogers Stampede PRCA Rodeo organizers aren’t settled on the past.

Sure, being named the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s 2014 Small Rodeo of the Year is quite an honor; now it’s time to look ahead.

“We didn’t want to rest on our past accomplishments, no matter how proud we are of them,” said David Petty, chairman of the volunteer committee that produces the annual rodeo. “We wanted to step it up a little more because our fans deserve it. We want to give them the best show, the best rodeo they’re going to find anywhere.”

That’s one of the reasons why the committee is bringing back John Harrison, one of the top entertainers in ProRodeo. In 2014, the Soper, Okla., man was honored as the Coors Man in the Can for his exploits as a rodeo barrelman and funnyman. He also won the PRCA’s Comedy Act of the Year.

“I love packing the barrel and being there for the cowboys,” Harrison said, pointing to his role as an in-arena protection for fallen bull riders.

But there’s so much more to Harrison’s tasks at each rodeo performance. He is one of many award-winning pieces to the Claremore rodeo’s puzzle. The rodeo is set for 7:45 p.m. Friday, May 22-Sunday, May 24, at Will Rogers Stampede Arena. Discounted tickets can be found on the rodeo’s website,; fans can also follow the rodeo on Facebook.

He will be joined by charro Tomas Garcilazo, a two-time winner of the PRCA’s Dress Act of the Year, and the championship livestock from Dallas-based Pete Carr Pro Rodeo. The Carr firm has been nominated as PRCA Stock Contractor of the Year each of the past two seasons; in 2014, it was named the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association’s Stock Contractor of the Year.

Harrison, though, adds the comedy to the event, helping add to the family friendly atmosphere that is the sport of rodeo.

“John is a true entertainer, and I love the fact that he’s from Oklahoma,” Petty said. “There aren’t many rodeos in Oklahoma that can boast of two great acts, but we can.

In addition to hysterical acts that showcase Harrison’s talent, the Oklahoma man serves as a valuable piece of the puzzle that helps make for a near-flawless performance each time he speaks.

“John is good, clean family fun,” said John Gwatney, Carr’s production supervisor. “It’s his rodeo background, because he grew up in this sport. For us, he helps us with the timing of our production. When you know what needs to be done and have someone that doesn’t have a big ego, then he’s willing to do work and willing to do that for the production.”

That’s the key reaching fans with a variety of entertaining items. Whether it’s a trick riding display that will leave fans in awe or his parody of rodeo queens, Harrison has a lot of ammunition.

“I do this for the love of the sport,” he said. “Growing up with it, you enjoy it. Now I can actually make a living at it, so that helps.”
