It is dreary and cold outside. You want new furniture but you are saving up for your dream vacation, a down payment or an addition to your house, next month's rent or college tuition. So why not rearrange it and get some strength training in too.
Moving the furniture around with your hubby, your housemates, or by yourself can give your home a little face lift. I like to use a little graph paper to sketch plans of the room, before I start lifting and moving. Sometimes, though I like to do it on the fly.
Remember to lift from your legs and not your back.
