Speaker: Hey! Clean House fans, here's our half minute tip from Go To Guy, Matt Iceman. Niecy Nash: Matty, what are some ways I can save energy around the house? Matt Iceman: Unplug your electronic devices. Niecy Nash: Really? Matt Iceman: Most people think, when they are off, they are not drawing any energy, not true. A computer, even in the off position can still draw as much current as a fridge. So, turn your devices off and unplug them, or get a power strip, flip the switch, you are saving energy, you are saving the earth. Niecy Nash: How about that? Speaker: Alright Clean House fans, here's your half minute tip, from Yard Sale diva, Trish Suhr. Niecy Nash: If I have a lot of books, that are going to be exposed, what's the best way to display them? Trish Suhr: Category specific is what matters the most. Being able to get to the things and known where they are at is 90% of the battle. And of course, make them fit on the shelf. So, be creative, lie them sideways, you even throw some nick nacks in there too, to keep them in place. But what's important, is being able to access what you need, when you need it.
