One of the biggest challenges sellers face when prepping their home for sale is the “D” word - Decluttering. It’s an intimidating project, and it can sometimes be paralyzing and overwhelming. Not only is it a perfect time to purge years of accumulated items, but it’s also necessary for staging your home for show. Prospective buyers like to envision themselves living in your space, and a de-cluttered home allows for that imagination.

So, where do you start? What do you keep? What do you toss? What sparks joy? Thanks to tidying sensation Marie Kondo, you can compartmentalize the project one bite at a time. Kondo, a bestselling author, star of Netflix’s hit show, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo,” and founder of KonMari Media, Inc., offers six simple

The world’s largest free hot-air balloon festival makes its return to the Rancho San Rafael Regional Park this weekend.

In 1982, just 20 hot-air balloons took flight at the Great Reno Balloon Race. Now, close to 100 balloons will lift off on September 7 – 9. Spectators are clad in pajamas, wrapped in blankets and clutching hot beverages as they gaze into the sky for the Glow Show that takes place at dawn. Shortly after, some will rise for Dawn Patrol and then the rest follow later at Mass Ascension. Skill and consistency are the keys to a victory and a piece of the $11,000 prize.

Five Reno startups were recognized by the city and state officials this month for raising funding and creating high-paying jobs.

From a company that caters to endurance athletes to one that specializes in the Internet of Things, Governor Brian Sandoval and Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve paid them a special recognition.
