Member AssistThis is a sponsored post. I am a Shop Your Way blogger and all opinions are my own.

I feel like I’m constantly on the go. When I need to shop, it’s usually online because of time constraints. I do love being able to go into the store and touch and feel things before buying, but my schedule doesn’t always allow that.

I recently downloaded the new Sears Shop Your Way mobile app onto my Android phone to see if it could help with any of my shopping conundrums. This app enables you to connect directly with your local Sears store right from your phone. You can even get in touch with the associate you have worked with through the app. That would be so convenient for those moments when you remember a question you wanted to ask after you left the store. This feature would have been pretty cool when I worked at Sears during college.

You can even provide photos of a product you recently purchased and ask questions about it to your associate. They can respond to your questions, saving you the time and hassle of having to go back to the store or call and wait on hold.

Composted materials are the best source of food and nutrients for plants so by building your own pile you can always feed your plants.

If you want to begin composting but are unsure of how to begin building the pile, use these steps to create a pile that will provide for and support all your garden beds.

Establish a Compost Site

Establishing a composting site is the first and most important part of the process. You want to be sure that you can easily access your compost pile in order to add to it, easily maintain it and then be able to pull soil from it once the pile is ready. Other factors you need to take into consideration include its proximity to your home, because of the smell, and whether or not this is going to be an open or closed compost pile.
