How much space do you have in your home? Is it cramped with your things reaching up to the ceiling in stacks? Or are you struggling to find things to do with space you are not using? Both of these are legitimate problems (Though having not enough space is probably the bigger of the two) and have vastly different solutions. If you do not have enough space, the answer is simple. You may consider buying a bigger place to live. The road to accomplishing that solution can be a lot more complex than the solution itself, but the concept is pretty straightforward. However, if you live in a home that has a lot of extra space and you have no idea what to do with it, the solution can be a little more difficult. Luckily, you have the luxury of time to find the

When people think of Idaho, they probably are not thinking about great cities with massive populations and lots of traffic problems. That is something that New York and California have going for them, though people associate Idaho with wide open spaces and a lot of nature, plus the potato. While this is probably one of the biggest draws for Idaho, it is not the only thing going on in the state. There may have been a time where Idaho was just one big empty space with a few towns sprinkled around, but that has not been the case for a while and the state is quickly moving faster and faster towards something else. Boise, Idaho, the capital of the state, is a flourishing and continually growing metropolis with a relatively large population and a lot of

One of the things Americans dream of most is to start their own business. To create something from the ground up, working in a field you understand and love, be your own boss, and potentially rake in a whole lot of money are all very enticing propositions, and it is understandable why so many people would be drawn to entrepreneurship. Unfortunately, starting a business is very hard. There are hundreds of things to consider and it is possible to do everything right in the starting of your business and still fail. People try many times to get the right business idea off the ground and some of them fail every time, eventually giving up on the dream. These failures happen for any number of reasons. Maybe it was not the right time. Maybe there was too

Idaho is so cold! Or, at least that’s the reputation it holds with many who maybe aren’t as familiar with the state. This isn’t much of a surprise, as the state happens to have low temperatures and is covered with large amounts of snow for a reasonable part of the year. This isn’t to say that Idahoans just stay inside and keep to themselves all winter though, quite the contrary in fact.

There are a lot of ways to get around when you need to be somewhere. Sometimes in a city (Say for an example, the city of Boise) the best and most economical way of getting around is by riding a bike. For most of the state of Idaho, a bicycle is not going to get you far. There is a lot of space between things that you might want to get to and it is far enough that you are only going to try and make that on a bike if you are a cross-country cyclist betting ready for a major tournament. That is probably not most people, though I suppose there is always a chance. This is not the case for a city like Boise. The area is more spread out than other cities, but things are still pretty close together and you can consider getting from place to place on a bike
