Gifts in a Jar

Shabbos gifts are a great way to thank your hostess for feeding you a great meal, and for getting a bedroom ready for you should you be sleeping over. There are a wide variety of gift ideas available to show your appreciation. One of the ones I like is to give a “Gift in a Jar.” You can also give this as a holiday gift...

Color Trends and How to Read Them

I recently had the opportunity to attend a “color trend forecast” by a leading paint manufacturer. The company provided “color” into the ever-changing window of design.

Organization is the key to any home. When you get rid of clutter, it is like a burden lifted. Traveling also entails a lot of organization. I just came back from a trip and I felt as though my trip revolved around all my wires and chargers. If you don’t have them, you truly cannot function in these days.

You just have to label the cups with what you are putting inside and store them all in a small plastic tote or basket. You can get several cups for just a few dollars and you just need a holder for all of them. This helps to keep cords from tangling and ensures that you always...
