      • Depending on where you live the month of March can be more of the same snow and ice and cold temperatures or the first inkling of Spring with tulips and crocus peaking out of the soil and buds sprouting on bushes. Use this month to think about your house and making it as comfortable and convenient as you can.
    These 9 items concentrate on making sure the systems of your home are in good working order and keeping them in that condition. Inside jobs involve getting rid of things you don’t use and cleaning and freshening things that you do. If weather permits you can go outdoors and prim and trim tree branches that may have fallen and prune away any dead or broken limbs.
