Mainstreet team member, Tyler in Thailand – Travelogue (Part 2)

One of the things I love about Thailand is how easy it is to get around and how incredibly inexpensive it is at the same time. Whether it’s getting around by plane, train, boat, or bus, you can buy transit on almost any street corner for cheap. After spending our first few days in Bangkok we took an overnight bus north to Chiang Mai, which isn’t a bad way to travel. We boarded the bus around 7pm, had a stop around midnight for a meal (included in the ticket cost) and woke up the next morning in Chiang Mai (not bad for $20). Read More...

Storage hacks for apartment living

Until I came to Canada, I never fully understood why storage was such an issue – in this part of the world. It is only after I had settled into my own apartment that I finally understood how space and extra storage is actually a big deal.

I also realized that as I change my wardrobe accordingly due to the very different seasons (bear in mind I am coming from 2 seasons – 5 degree minimum winter and a 40 degree maximum summer only) I needed, as do most Albertans enough storage to keep my “out of season” clothing and most of my library.

Car-less in Calgary, it’s possible and surprisingly easy

You might think of Calgary as a city where you need a car to get around and it’s the only option for transportation. I’m here to tell you about a word that used to be dirty in Calgary but lately has picked up a lot of steam, that word is cycling.

Mainstreet buildings near the core (Inglewood, Bankview, Downtown, Beltline and more) are all very easy to navigate around and get to important things you need like grocery stores, local entertainment, shopping and evening and weekend events & festivals and more. There’s also the downtown cycle track project which just celebrated its first birthday and is a great way to navigate the core and take some stress out of riding your bike as you get your own lanes to comfortably ride in that allow easy access and traversing of the city center.  Read More...

Child proofing tips for your apartment

With a new addition to our family, I have come to the realization that each of our kids requires different child proofing techniques. Kyle, now 6 years old, was more of a TV stand guy, Avery who has just started crawling is more of an electrical outlets and kitchen explorer.

For Avery we have had to move furniture around so that she has no access to the electrical outlets, which I realize is a main attraction because we have more gargets in the house and she is seeing her family frequent these spots and feels she is missing out on all the fun. We have had to remove all extension cords, and make sure the laptop and TV cables are neatly tucked away so that she doesn’t pull on them. Read More...

What it is like to rent an apartment in Regina, Saskatchewan?

Regina emerges like an oasis in between the Canadian prairie desert. It is the capital city of the province of Saskatchewan with over 968,000 residents. The other real urban cities in the Canada that includes Calgary, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Red Deer and Lloydminster have their own attractions; but Regina appears to be strangely forested and green for a prairie city.It is sure that when purchasing a Regina apartment it is very easy to be distracted by the excellence of the city. That's why it is essential to contract a real estate agent who is local to the city with a specific end goal to locate the best fit for you. There are numerous attractions to moving to Regina, the capital city of Saskatchewan; however the beautiful lavish parks and green spaces have a tendency to allure all who encounter it. Before buying an apartment for rent in Regina Saskatchewan, one should be very much aware of all that the city brings to the table. Read More...

Apartment Design and Damage Deposit – Have Both

One of the biggest challenges of being a renter can be making an apartment feel like home, designing it the way you want, all while getting your deposit back should you decide to move out. After all, this isn’t college, posters of bands and some old movies just won’t cut it anymore.

Wall art, this is the most obvious one, I’m talking about the kind of art that has a frame. Scotch tape can peel paint off drywall ($$ off your deposit) and it isn’t impressing anyone. A box of nails, wire and picture hooks can be purchased for under $10 at your local hardware store and it’s super easy to wire, hang and mount a piece (takes about 10 minutes). Read More...

Trick’n Out The Apartment For A Halloween Treat

As a kid, don’t you think the biggest treat would be an apartment building for them to go door to door to? In this post I’ll outline some helpful apartment tips to provide the ultimate treat for the little ghosts, ghouls, princesses, and pirates.

WHY IT’S THE ULTIMATE TREAT?

  1. It’s safer: Think back to your trick-or-treating days, recklessly and blindly running from house to house, street to street, chasing the best candy, trying to fill your pillowcase. Your parents trailing behind, constantly reminding you to look both ways, watch out for ice, and slow down. All of this can be avoided in the safety of an apartment building. No busy streets, hazardous conditions, or fear of losing sight of one another.

Working out in your apartment

posted by mainstreetbiz 4 months ago
tags: Rental Apartment Apartment Renting

Want to get in better shape but don’t want to pay for a gym membership? Why not work out in your apartment: you get the privacy you want, and there are lots of ways to get a great workout, no matter your level.

The first thing you need is a foam workout mat. I like the Connect-A-Mat from Walmart, it comes in different colours, and is easy to put together and then hide when done or people come over. This softens the noise for your neighbours, plus your ground workouts are much softer.

The second thing you need is some weights. Again, head to Walmart to buy two different sets. I recommend both a 3 pound and 5 pound set of rubber or neoprene dumbbells if you are just starting out. Read More...
