WegoWise's Top 5 Links for Summer Projects

by ‐ Tags: green living

Whether you want to be a more informed citizen or just want to kill some time before 5 on a Friday afternoon, WegoWise has got you covered. It's the best time of year to take a stay-cation and work on some of the things you have been putting off for years. If your deck doesn't have stairs, that might be the best place to start, Dad. But if you are looking for a great project to pour some time into, look no further. So peruse our best links, give us some feedback and be sure to share some of the info you just gleaned with other interested parties at the parties you are hopefully attending this weekend.
