Your Checklist for Moving to a New State

Are you moving from one state to another? My name is Laura, and I am a real estate expert. I work in multiple states and find that many of my clients don't know that each state has different laws about moving. For example, some states require you to get a new drivers license and car registration immediately while others give you a significant grace period. Some states require you to pay a fee for property you register while others do not. I will provide a checklist of things you need to consider before moving from one state to another. I hope you will learn a lot that can make your move easier.

Locking Up the Good Paper: How to Prevent Office Thefts

by Lester Herrera

On occasion, you might take a pen home from work unintentionally. Some employers might consider that office theft, but it was an honest mistake. Accidentally taking a pen home is quite different from stealing reams of paper and boxes of pens and other supplies. If your office seems to be experiencing thefts of supplies, there are a few ways you can stop it and prevent the thefts from happening.

Locked Supply Closets and a Single Key

Some businesses are fortunate enough to have a large, walk-in closet that they can use in which to store office supplies. If you have such a closet at work, but it does not have a lock on it, now may be the time to put a locking handle or security keypad on the door. Additionally, if you are the only person to be responsible for the key, or another manager is responsible for the key, then only the managers can retrieve supplies and thefts would be limited to one person each shift.

Heavy Duty Storage Cabinets

Heavy duty storage cabinets are an acceptable substitute for non-existent supply closets. If you have a little space along one wall at work where these cabinets can sit, then you can erect as many of these cabinets as you need. They are very difficult to break into and almost all cabinets of this sort lock with a key. Because they are so heavy they are nearly impossible to lift and/or carry, so you never have to worry about after-hours thefts of an entire cabinet. Again, it may be a good idea to have one person on each shift be responsible for the keys to these cabinets so that employees have to ask for supplies rather than walk up and take them. If you're thinking of investing in some heavy duty storage cabinets, consider looking into local suppliers, such as Quantum Storage.

Big and Tall Floor Safes

If you want to be sure that absolutely nothing is ever stolen again, you can buy several floor-to-ceiling, wide floor safes. In these, you can lock up the most expensive copy paper, fountain pens, cash drawers, etc..It may be a little extreme, but these safes often cost about the same as a heavy duty storage cabinet and keep things just as safe, if not safer. Since you would not need a key to these safes, you would not have to worry about someone getting the keys and using them to open the safes. Instead, there are safes with coded key pads or traditional locks with dials and tumblers that you can use.
