If you think playing the game is fun, then you better get the bingo party planning started. It is more fun that you think. So how does it all start? These steps might help you out!

  • First, talk about your plans with your family, friends and even coworkers. When they know you’ve got plans to throw a bingo party, they will show their interest. By then, you will have an idea how many people would want to attend your bingo night at home. The more people sign up, the more exciting the party will be. Plus, if it’s a game of money, more people will mean bigger pot and that’s going to make the party even more exciting.
  • Second, choose a night when most of the people who are interested can come. You don’t them coming late because then it would push the game further into the night. The day may fall on a weekend too. Choose one night within the week when most of them could come and that’s it. The date has been set.
  • Third, invite a good number of interested people on your bingo night. You may informally invite them by discussing the party plans in person or you can be more formal with an invitation at hand. Either way, those who are interested will surely come. If you want a little bit of exclusivity in the party, you may choose to limit the people you invite. However, if you are open to your guests bringing guests, that is also a good idea. It will be an opportunity for people to meet new friends.
  • Fourth, plan out your meals. Usually, a bingo party will entail a potluck system. People can bring foods they can share with others. It doesn’t have to be formal catering and all. Finger foods and chips would definitely be enough to much through the night. You may also assign someone to bring the drinks. From the sodas to the beer or perhaps even wine for those of age, you can serve all these drinks while people are busy looking at their numbers and hoping for a win!
  • Fifth, prepare the bingo cards and the chips that you will provide for every person for that night. You may opt to buy bingo cards online or you can invest time and effort in making them yourself. Personalizing those bingo cards are definitely a plus. Not only will you look forward to people coming to play, but you will be waiting for the good words they will say about the bingo cards you’ve made from scratch. Choose whichever suits your taste, your schedule and your budget as well.
  • Lastly, decide if the bingo party is all for fun or if it is something where people can have a good time and win some good money too. This decision will impact everything else about the party. If you decide that it’s just a game for fun minus the money, that’s all right. You can still get people excited not for the money but for the thrill of actually spending the night playing the game. If you decide that the game is all about the money, then you can charge each person and put all that money into a pot. Whoever wins the game shall take home the pot. This will definitely make the night something to remember.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
