Geek Etiquette: Maintain Your Home

You most likely don’t want to be known as the creepy house with overgrown weeds. If kids run away screaming from your lawn, and refuse to get baseballs that land in your backyard, then you may have a problem.

Brightnest solves that problem in a tech-savvy way. Sign up for the service, and they’ll post home-maintenance reminders as they apply to you. You’ll be reminded to do things like purchase a fire extinguisher, clean out your microwave, or weed your lawn. The reminders come with an estimated timeframe for the activity, and you can assign tasks to other members of your home. Brightnest also allows you to store information like paint chips, user manuals, and important phone numbers so they’re all in one place and don’t end up cluttering a drawer.

I love that the tips are often things I just don’t even think about. It sets me up to become a great homeowner/apartment-renter!
