“Let’s talk about storage”

Wade is also a master carpenter on HGTV’s “Curb Appeal: The Block.” He said for storage needs around the house, the RYOBI LINK Modular Storage System is worth a look.

Moving parts fit together and are waterproof.

Heavy-duty wall brackets can help reduce clutter in the garage, “holding 75 pounds per [linear] foot,” he said.

Kids’ sports equipment, rakes, shovels and more can go in these racks, Wade said.

Where do you store your children's or grandchildren's sports equipment?  Chip Wade offered some smart suggestions for storage and organization.

He said the system offers versatility, portability and accessibility.

The best part? “These are made here in the United States,” Wade said.

For larger structural projects like swing sets and decks, he suggested trying SPAX screws (no more pre-drilling into wood). These not only work on wood, but also on masonry, concrete, metal and even plastic.

Become slim and clean

Wade also suggested making cleaning easier with the VacuVorteX. The product attaches directly to the exhaust port of a wet dry vacuum cleaner. “It will save you time,” he said.

It reduces the noise of the wet-dry vacuum cleaner by a few decibels, underlines the VacuVorteX site.

Upgrade the towel rack

Chilly after a bath or shower? Wade suggested turning the bathroom towel rack into a heated towel rack using Amba products. Rack can hold a single deluxe towel or two standard size towels.

A heated towel rack can help warm kids (or adults) after a bath or shower, Chip Wade pointed out in a “Fox and Friends Weekend” segment.

Additionally, there are options for three or more towels for a warmer experience, he noted.

The “towel racks consume about the same amount of energy as a few light bulbs,” Amba’s website points out.

Wade even recommended using racks to warm children’s blankets to keep toddlers “nice and cozy” on cold winter mornings. In addition, some models can be plugged into a wall outlet.


Atlanta native Chip Wade represents several national brands as a spokesperson. He is the owner of Wade Works Creative LLC, which offers residential and commercial design services, as well as architecture.

Many of the products he mentioned are available at big box retailers and building outlets.
