Handybook on the Streets- Greenwich Avenue Festival

One of our favorite parts of New York City are the colorful street fairs that turn the blur of everyday traffic into streets filled with beautiful artwork, delicious food from all over the world, and amazing people every weekend. Handybook was lucky enough to be one of over 40 vendors at the Greenwich Avenue Festival last Saturday, April 20. We had a fantastic time enjoying the beautiful warm April weather and talking to some of our favorite people in the world- you! Our fellow festival- goers and street wanderers shared some of their favorite Handybook experiences and went home with Handybook discounts, free swag, and balloons! Lets be honest though, all anyone really wants from a street fair on a sunny Saturday is free balloons, right??

After spending an afternoon connecting with new friends and old, learning about your experiences and stories, we know how unbelievably lucky we are to have the opportunity to work with such kind and inspirational people every day!

So thank you Handybookers, for making us love our jobs so much! We never stop working to help make your life easier and stress-free so that you have time to enjoy everything that your amazing city has to offer, from street festivals and art shows to live music and farmers markets. We live in such an amazing city, go out and experience it, and be sure to stop by and say hello if you happen to see us on the streets!

Fresh New Idea: Host a Spring Cleaning Party!

Friends toasting

The weather is finally starting to warm up again and we all know what that means- the glorious season of Spring cleaning! Ok, so maybe it’s not our absolute favorite part of Spring (I am SO ready to ditch my winter coat and go shopping) but Handybook is here to help make it easier!

So here’s a fun idea to conquer that huge to-do list of things that need to be scrubbed and polished in half the time and twice the fun; host a Spring cleaning party!

treeInvite over your girlfriends, mix up some cocktails (which you can find some delicious, low-cal recipes for here), break out the hors d’oeuvres  turn up the music, and get cleaning! By de-cluttering with your friends the work will go much faster, plus it’s a great excuse to have some much-needed girl time. And a great bonus? Your friends will have great ideas that you never even thought of for organizing your home and beautifying it for the warmer months ahead. Just make sure you return the favor, or even better- gift them a Handybook cleaning with our Spring discount package, and have that girl’s day out you’ve been meaning to do!

Are You Ready for Spring Cleaning?

It’s that time of year again, as the frost finally begins to thaw and the tulip buds just start peeking through the ground, we can finally see the dawn of the warmer seasons ahead. But March also means that its time for spring-cleaning, a chance to open the blinds to let in some light and de-clutter our lives. So are you ready to tackle your spring projects? The hardest part is starting, and Handybook is here to help! With cleaning and organizational tips, DIY project ideas, and readymade to- do lists, spring cleaning this year will be easier than ever.

Having trouble deciding which clothes to give away? Try this quick tip- turn all of the hangers in your closet the opposite way, and each time you wear a piece of clothing turn it back. At the end of the year donate the clothes on any hangers still facing outward. If you haven’t worn it in a year, statistics show that you probably won’t wear it again.
