Valpak® Empowers Consumers to Take Some Stress Out of Spring-Related Home Projects

Money-Saving Brand Partners with Home and Lifestyle Expert, Laura Dellutri, to Help Save Time and Money with Spring Cleaning Tips this Season

LARGO, Fla., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring is (almost) here and homeowners know what that means…a house full of projects.  This season, Valpak encourages individuals to lessen the stress and hire a professional for the heavy-duty work, allowing more opportunities to focus on family.

For more than 45 years, Valpak has provided local savings on goods and services, including home services. This year, the coupon company teams with home and lifestyle expert Laura Dellutri, to empower consumers to "get their spring back."  With the help of a convenient mobile app, Valpak.com and its recognizable Blue Envelope®, Valpak makes it easier than ever to save money, time and a little sanity this spring.

"Spring is a great time to get re-organized and assess all your home and personal needs," said Dellutri. "Unfortunately there are only so many hours in the day to prioritize what is most important. Staying organized can help check those home-related tasks off the list, creating more opportunities to be with friends and family, and save lots of money along the way."

For many homeowners, spring is a common time to complete tasks that have lingered for months, but in actuality, are much better suited for professionals. Consumers looking to save money may spend more in the long-run by handling a job they're not qualified to tackle, whether it's carpet cleaning, landscaping or installing a new garage door or windows.

"During spring, many local business offer great savings on an array of home-related services, making it easier than ever to save money," said Michael Vivio, President of Cox Target Media, provider of Valpak. "When consumers take advantage of these types of deals, they've got more time to do the things they enjoy." 

Inspired by the many money-saving offers, Dellutri designed a series of "spring renewal" tips to help people feel refreshed and accomplished this season:  

Take the Work Out of Spring Cleaning

  • Whether it's maid service, carpet cleaning, closet design, or painting indoors or outside, let the professionals do the heavy lifting. By taking advantage of a great Valpak offer in your local area, you can save money, time and a little sanity this spring.

Turn Your Bedroom in to a Sanctuary

  • We spend more time in our bedroom than any other room in the home – about 1/3 every day. Call a professional to clean the carpets and drapes. Enjoy a bit of "update shopping" and opt for a new bedspread, comfy pillows and accent decor to help you revamp one of our favorite spaces. 

Explore a New Hobby

  • Spring is a great time to try something new and many local business offer great deals on outdoor activities like boot camps, yoga and more. Get outdoors and enjoy the weather.

Make Time for Moi

  • By calling a professional for spring-related services, you ultimately make time for yourself – because we all need a little TLC! Check the Valpak app on your phone for convenient offers and deals at local spas, hair and nail salons, and more. Consider taking a friend along to join in the savings and spend time quality together.

Identify the "Real" Household Needs

  • Determine which home care projects and updates are most important and what can be put on the backburner. By use of a white board and help from the family, determine what the necessities are (i.e. plumbing or foundational needs), versus cosmetic "wants" (i.e. new granite countertops, or stainless steel appliances).

Often the combination of work, kids, errands and the daily issues we face can be overwhelming, so taking time for you should not be a guilt-fest," added Dellutri. "A combination of home, family and 'me,' creates a healthy balance to keep you focused, feeling great and smiling, even when those spring showers come along."
