Simple St. Patrick’s Day Safety Tips

St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to go out and have a few drinks with friends. But if you will be spending a few hours in a bar on the holiday, be sure to think about safety before anything else. St. Paddy’s Day falls on a Thursday (March 17) this year, so before the big day arrives, here are a few safety tips for celebrating the holiday.


Transportation: figure out how you will be getting to and from the bar on St. Paddy’s day. Do not wait until the last second to figure this one out. Get a designated driver, walk, get an Uber, just know how you will be getting home without driving that night.


Be prepared: the line between buzzed and flat out drunk can be crossed very quickly, so instead of winging it, prepare your body. Have dinner before going out and be sure to match a cup of water for every two beers you drink.


Stop drinking: don’t’ start chugging drinks during last call, and instead wind down during the last hour before the bar closes. Be sure to drink some water and check on your friends.


Tip For Dealing With a Noisy Neighbor

Having a noisy neighbor can be a stressful and difficult situation to handle, and that noise can turn an otherwise great apartment into a bad one. Here are a few tips for dealing with a noisy neighbor.


Contact your manager: the first step is to contact your manager and let them try to fix the situation. Be sure to keep notes and document the times when your neighbors are being loud.


Respond with a polite note: if the situation continues, write a polite note explaining when and how they were being loud. This personal response could be enough to stop the behavior in its tracks.


Get proactive: if a shared wall is the issue, try decorating with fabric, cork or any other sound proofing materials.

Security Deposit Tips and Help

Here are a few tips and help for getting your security deposit back once you move out. The process is typically simple, if you have done an adequate amount of cleaning, but sometimes disputes can arise.


Explanation: if your landlord withholds any portion of your deposit, they are required by law to provide a written account of the deduction details.


Communicate: landlords are not evil people out to get you, so before you move out, ask the landlord to do a quick walk through to be sure you are leaving the apartment in the correct order.


Stains: managers can only deduct deposits for damages, and they are responsible for items that are normal wear and tear. However, wall and carpet stains are not considered normal wear and tear so be sure to clean those areas.
