With Clipix you can save web content, pictures, Excel files, Word documents or PDFs on to private or public Clipboards and share things you really care about. By going to the Clipix website and dragging a “clip” button onto their browser bar, you can click whenever you find an item you want to reference later.
Here are five ways Clipix can help organize your home renovations and improvements:
1. HIRING CONTRACTORS
Clipboards can be created to include the contractors you speak with in the preliminary stages of renovations;
2. SAVE MONEY ON TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT WITH PRICE DROP ALERT FEATURE
If you decide to do a renovation project by yourself, chances are you’ll need to purchase tools and supplies. Keep a Clipboard with different items--by using the Clipix Price Drop Alert, you will be notified when the price of the product that you clip falls below a certain price or percentage. All you need to do is clip the product, set a price and Clipix will do the rest. When the clipped item reaches the target price, there is a notification on your Clipix page; in addition, you will receive an email informing you of the current price. The Price Drop Alert can also be used for chairs, tables or any product you add to a Clipboard.
3. KEEP ALL ESTIMATES AND INVOICES IN ONE PLACE
Keep a Clipboard for all estimates and invoices that you receive from vendors and/or contractors. How many times have you misplaced receipts or invoices that need to be paid? Clipix lets you add copies of these misplaced items so you will have them in one location and never have to search—they’
Once you know exactly what the project entails and the supplies that go with it, you can keep an ongoing budget on a Clipboard and refer back to it with actual numbers. You can also add bank loan information to this Clipboard and add it to the line items on the budget Excel sheet.
5. USE PHOTOS FOR INCREASE IN PROPERTY VALUE
Renovations and home improvements almost always increase property value. Create a Clipboard with photos of the area(s) you will be renovating. Before starting the project take “before” photos and add them to the Clipboard; when the project is complete, place the before and after photos side by side. Use this Clipboard when appraising the new property value.
