Texas Still No.1 destination for those moving within U.S

As Texas continues to reign as America's No. 1 growth state, 2017 proved to be a big year for those making the move to the Lone Star State.

According to U-Haul, year-over-year arrivals of one-way trucks in Texas rose 1% in the last year while departures grew 3% compared to 2016. Despite a larger year-over-year increase in departures, arriving trucks still accounted for 50.3 percent of all one-way U-Haul traffic in Texas, allowing it to maintain its status as the top net-gain state.

In order to conduct this annual study, U-Haul calculates the net gain of one-way U-Haul truck rentals entering a state versus leaving a state in a calendar year. Data is then compiled from more than 1.7 million one-way annual U-Haul truck rentals. While migration trends do not correlate directly to population or economic...

Austin No. 9 In The Country For Keeping New Year's Resolutions

Austin is the ninth best city in America when it comes to keeping New Year's resolutions, according to a study by WalletHub. The study took several categories of holding resolutions and ranked 182 cities around the country.

The four categories WalletHub measured were health, school and work, finances and bad habits. Each city was ranked in each category, resulting in a final score. They measured rankings by exploring how easy it is to keep or break resolutions in each city.

If a city has very few gyms, for example, their score for holding true to health-related resolutions is lower. Austin did well in that category, coming in No. 28.

Austin came in No. 60 for ease of keeping financial resolutions, third in the school and work category and No. 57 in getting rid of those bad habits.

School and work played a big role in ...

2. Mixed Metallics

A few years back, mixing metals was a total no-no. But experts now agree that today’s homeowners want more than simple one or two copper or brass fixtures. To warm up the industrial feel of some metals, pair them with a natural stone like marble or limestone,...
