Holiday Decor Storage - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

From October through December, the joys of the holidays are abundant. Unfortunately, so is the cleanup afterward. If your storage area is a nightmare full of boxes and bags, it's time to roll up your sleeves and organize so that all of your beautiful decorations are out of your way and ready for next year. But where should you begin? Our real estate agents have a few tips to help you get started.

  • Invest in matching storage containers
    This is not to make your garage look pretty, although it will be far nicer to look at than a pile of sagging, dirty boxes. Matching containers mean that you can stack them high to utilize all the vertical space available without creating a huge footprint. While you're at it, buy plenty of labels so that each container can be marked with its contents. That way, you won't have to search through Thanksgiving linens to look for the Halloween skeletons. Cardboard invites pests to investigate the contents, so opt for plastic containers. This is one time that biodegradable is not the best choice.

Fall Home Decor Ideas - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

Fall is one of our real estate agents' favorite times of the year. With apple cider donuts, spooky themes, and pumpkin spice lattes, we can't help but feel excited about all things fall. And while nature's magic is happening outside, it's time to dress your home with colors and materials that make your space look and feel as cozy and homey as possible. The interior décor trends we're seeing for fall 2021 revolve around comfort, color, and convenience. Here are the biggest fall home décor trends of 2021.

  • Heirloom Furniture and Décor
    Bespoke furnishings and vintage décor are all the rage for fall 2021. This trend centers on taking accessories and furniture often seen in grandma's house and pairing them with modern ones to create a mashup style. This, for instance, could mean displaying an heirloom vase on a simple, modern dining table or dusting off old picture frames. This fall is the perfect time to display your flea market finds, grannie's heirloom pieces, and travel mementos.

Closet Turned Office - Wichita, KS - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

Have you found yourself working from home a little more frequently this past year? You're not alone if you have, and you're not likely to return to the office anytime soon. Most Americans have indicated they would prefer to work from home rather than return to the cubicle. However, many Americans have discovered that working from home daily requires finding creative ways to transform areas into ad hoc offices. If you're looking for a fast and easy way to find space and close up the office at the end of the day, our real estate agents recommend taking a closer look at your cluttered closets. 

Clutter Can Go

Closets are catch-alls for clutter. They are filled with old sporting equipment, packing materials, shopping bags, old shoes, items for Goodwill, and more. While that little voice in the back of your head says, "You'll use this someday," that little voice is blowing smoke. You'll never need it. You'll never use it. And, you'll never miss it. So, clear it out and toss or donate it. With spring cleaning in high gear, now is the perfect time to motivate yourself to create a cloffice you will use week after week, year after year.

Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters' annual For Kids' Sake Campaign has been a tradition for over thirty years and accounts for about one-third of the KSBBBS overall revenue budget. Weigand became directly involved as an organization in 2019, forming fundraising teams and raising $8,200 in its first year to support the youth served by KSBBBS. When the pandemic hit, it was apparent that the 2020 fundraising efforts and bowling parties would have to be canceled, resulting in a significant loss of funds for the organization.

 

As a result, Johnathan Weigand and Josh Turner stepped into action with other ways to help. Weigand employees came together and collected food items for the grocery care packages that were distributed to the KSBBS youth and their families. Then, the idea was formed to host a golf tournament in the fall to provide additional financial support.

 

On Friday, October 9, 2020, the 1st Annual J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc. Charity Golf Classic was held at Terradyne Country Club. Twenty-one sponsors and teams raised more than $15k to support the nearly 800 Big/Little matches in Sedgwick County.


"Weigand is proud to partner with Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters to support our local youth," said Johnathan Weigand, BBBS Community Leadership Council member. We were pleased to be able to provide assistance to their well-deserving program when it was much needed, and we look forward to continuing our partnership in the future."

 

 

Recruiting volunteers for youth waiting for a Big Brother or Sister is an ever-present need. And, during these times, our youth need us more than ever. You are encouraged to join the thousands of mentors across Kansas who are making a difference, including Weigand's very own Big Sister, Kelly Watkins.
