Year after year, study after study, good market, down market the story is always the same…owning a home is a good investment. Not only does it build wealth but it also provides many psychological benefits too.

A survey released earlier this year by the magazine Better Homes and Gardens found that eight in 10 respondents said homeownership is still a good investment and believe owning a home is a smart financial move and a source of pride.

Here are some results of the 2,500 people surveyed online:

  • 86% of home owners still feel owning a home is a good investment.
  • 85% feel “owning a home is one of their proudest accomplishments.”
  • 69% of Americans who don’t currently own a home agree with the statement, “No matter what happens in the U.S. housing market, owning a home is still an important goal in my life.”
  • 68% of Americans plan to spend money on their homes in the next six months, with roughly half (49%) expecting to pay up to $1,000.

Do you have clogged drains? All of us will experience a backed up drain at some point in our life. Store bought drain cleaners have harsh chemicals and can be expensive. Homemade drain cleaners can be an effective alternative to the store bought ones, and you probably have everything you need in your home already.

Here is how to clear your drain the natural way in just a few minutes:

1. Pour ½ cup baking soda into the drain.

2. Pour ½ cup of vinegar into the drain.

3. The ingredients will start bubbling and fizzing.

4. When the bubbling and fizzing has stopped pour boiling water into the drain.

5. Flush the drain with hot water.

You may have to do this a few times, but soon your drain should be as good as new.
