Create a household journal. What do you need? Yearn for? What works and what doesn't work?
Entryway: it is a room. Need space for coats, shoes and bags. Surfaces should be free of clutter. Try a large mirror.
Hallway could be a gallery of photos. If so, you need good lighting. Try displaying children's art.
Record food preferences and gift ideas in your house journal.
Gift wrapping - brown kraft paper, glossy finish white paper and a matte (or shiny) silver paper. Stock up on interesting ribbons, raffia, skinny silk cords and other pretty ties.
Add an attractive topping to the present (i.e. baby hat for a shower; paint brushes tied with twine for child; green satin ribbon and red Christmas tree balls with white glossy paper).
Storage - use coloured tape on rubbermaid containers. Ex. green and red for Christmas.
Holidays - instead of a wreath, try a flat backed basket with holiday trimmings.
