If you want to visit the Philadelphia Home Show this weekend or next, please email me ASAP. I’m speaking this Sunday at 3 PM on 7 Strategies for Clutter-Free Living. If you are spending Valentine’s Day at the home show, you are my kind of people! Be sure to check out some cool new features, such as a Make and Take Station, glammed up sheds, and furniture styling challenges from Ballard Designs and Ikea. Much of this has been masterminded my my friend, the talented and super-nice Denise Sabia of The Painted Home.

If you are just tired of winter, like I am, and want a 60-second way to make your mudroom go from crazy to organized, then I have the best tip for ya.

Weird but true, rehang everything on the bottom hooks of a double-hook row, and your stuff looks more organized instantly.

Also, the rest of your family now has a much better shot at actually hanging their stuff, because suddenly it looks like there is room where there didn’t appear to be any before. The below shots have EXACTLY the same amount of stuff hanging, but see how much more room there is?

I hope you have something lovely, yummy, or snuggly planned this weekend. Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!
