“Let’s talk about memory”

Wade is also a master carpenter on HGTV’s Curb Appeal: The Block. He said the RYOBI LINK Modular Storage System is worth a look for storage needs around the home.

The moving parts interlock and are waterproof.

Sturdy wall shelves can help reduce garage clutter, “holds 75 pounds each [linear] foot,” he said.

He said the system offers versatility, portability and accessibility.

The best part? “These are made right here in the US,” Wade said.

For larger structural projects like swings and decks, he suggested trying SPAX screws (no more pre-drilling in wood). These work not only on wood, but also on masonry, concrete, metal and even plastic.

Get lean and clean

Wade also suggested making cleaning a breeze with the VacuVorteX. The product attaches directly to the outlet of a wet-dry vacuum cleaner. “It will save you time,” he emphasized.

According to the VacuVorteX website, it dampens the noise of the wet-dry vacuum cleaner by a few decibels.

Upgrade the towel bar

Shivering after a bath or shower? Wade suggested upgrading the bathroom towel rail to a heated towel rail using Amba products. The stand can hold a single luxury towel or two standard size towels.

Plus, there are options for three or more towels for a warmer experience, he noted.

The “towel rails use about as much energy as a couple of lightbulbs,” the Amba website points out.

Wade even recommended using racks to warm kid’s blankets to keep little ones “nice and cozy” on chilly winter mornings. Some models can also be plugged into an outlet.
