Bargain Hunter’s Heaven

Way Classy Consignment store provides a way to sell clothes and accessories for you. Selling clothes this way can help you clear out your closet and make a profit.

Staci Way’s success story began when she was in her teens. Way, the owner of Way Classy Consignment on Spring Hill Drive, said she was just 15 years old, in High School, and determined, “I would not have to get a summer job.”

“Instead, my High School summers were spent making happy memories with me and my mom browsing yard sales and thrift store shelves for 25 and 50 cent clothing and collectibles.”

Dreams turn into reality

For the majority of us, our dream kitchen is usually imagined as a glittering showplace, filled with granite islands stretching toward a faraway horizon and sparkling appliances that instantly make you a Michelin chef.

Truth is, unless you’re rich enough to be able to buy your home complete with these dream kitchens and bathrooms, remodeling is the affordable option.

This is where the experts come into play and the more expert help you can get to help you imagine your new dream spaces, the better your options will be on choices and cost control.

When an elderly parent dies, their children are often left to ponder the future of the remaining parent and the parents’ lifelong family home — a typical three bedroom, two bathroom property — common in subdivisions found throughout Florida.

One probably envisages a tidy, well-kept property but often there’s an overgrown garden and peeling paintwork. Inside, though, is a different story. There could be a treasure trove of belongings the couple has gathered throughout their longterm marriage.

Sue Simone started volunteering over 30 years ago providing helpful care to homebound seniors who needed help in the house in varying degrees.
“It was a powerful experience and gave me a tremendous sense of purpose to serve others,” she said.

But then her husband was diagnosed with a rare form of dementia called “frontotemporal dementia” and their life together was plunged into a world of uncertainty. His prognosis was not good.
