### Useful Conversions

This month we have Useful Conversions! If you’ve ever wondered how many teaspoons of sugar go into a cup or a quick way to convert pounds to kilograms, I’ve Got Your Six!

You may want to bookmark this post for future use. You can also print the photo to stick onto the fridge or keep it handy in your favorite cookbook. If you plan to laminate this information or want a higher-quality print, drop me an email. I’m happy to email a PDF version of this conversion chart.

Conversions include weight (mass), dry measurements (weight), dry measurements (volume), liquid measurements (volume), minimum safe internal temps, metric conversions, temperature conversions, kitchen abbreviations, static temperatures, and miscellaneous measurements.

Common U.S. liquids:
1 cup = 8 fl oz = 16 tbsp = 48 tsp
1 gal = 4 qts = 8 pints = 16 cups

Metric conversions:
Convert         Calculation
°F to °C = (°F-32) / 1.8
°C to °F = (°C x 1.8) + 32
cm =         in x 2.54
inch =         cm x .3937
ml =                 fl oz x 29.57
ml =                 cup x 236.6
fl oz =         ml x .0338
gram =         dry oz x 28.35
dry oz =         grams x .035
liter =         gal x 3.7854
gallon =         liter x .264
pound =         kilogram x 2.205
kilogram = pound x .454
yard =         meter x 1.09
meter =         yard x .914
kilometer = mile x 1.61
mile =         kilometer x .62

Ounces
Dry Ounces = Weight
Fluid Ounces = Volume

Static Temperatures
Water boils at 212°F / 100°C
Water freezes at 32°F / 0°C
Keep fridge at 40°F / 5°C or below

Please read Want To Buy A New-Built House? and New Build Home Basics to see if a new home is ideal for you.

If you’re ready to investigate a new-build purchase, it's vital that you DON'T REGISTER WITH THE BUILDER WITHOUT A REALTOR.

If you register without a REALTOR, you often waive your ability to have a no-cost, professional REALTOR on your side. You have accepted the builder's agent and will be treated like a customer. Instead, let the REALTOR register for you. This ensures you have an agent with you - at no cost to you - through the process. DON'T PAY FOR SERVICES THAT YOU DON'T GET!

I share comparative market analyses with my clients as well as information about builders, community amenities, school districts, homeowners' associations (HOA), utility districts (MUDs, SUDs, PIDs, etc.) and more.

I can help you if you’re ready to move forward. I can contact the builders on your behalf, negotiate favorable deals and leverage our large brokerage to your advantage because I work for you.
