News from CBS Local:

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — We’ve got a little bit of a different Get Movin’ Monday for you this week. The holidays are pretty much over, you’re cleaning up from parties and perhaps starting to think about some projects around the house.

This week, we have six different tricks you can use to make life a little easier. Sometimes you don’t have all you need around the house to do a home improvement. We talked with Spike Carlsen of Family Handyman Magazine to get you moving on six awesome “Life Hacks.”

Carlsen is a contributor to Eagan-based Family Handyman Magazine, where every month they print reader-submitted life hacks, like the “Cash Money Tape Measure.”

“Reach in your billfold, you have a six-inch tape measure right there,” Carlsen said.

If you’re taking a bunch of measurements: Keep them sticky. Carlsen says take a piece of masking tape, stick it to tape and write the number of the measurement down.

Carlsen says readers of the magazine are very proud of the tips the provide to stay handy around your home.

TRENTON — Nearly three dozen home improvement contractors have been cited for violations including not complete work on jobs that had been paid for in advance and failing to refund deposits requested by customers, state authorities announced today.

The notices of violation, issued to 35 firms during the past three months, seek $ 438,176 in customer restitution and $ 129,500 in civil penalties, the state Attorney General’s Office said. In total in 2014, state authorities cited 130 contractors seeking more than $ 2.1 million.

The latest round of citations issued accuse each of the contractors of various violations of the state Contractor’s Registration Act, including failing to provide customers with detailed, written contracts on projects costing more than $ 500, authorities said.

Twenty-two of the companies were also cited for operating without being registered with the state as contractors.
