Some household tips

Have a picnic in your backyard

You dont need fancy furniture to be able to take advantage of the weather .Make outdoor entertaining fun with a few easy ideas.Create a makeshift picnic table , even a wooden board placed on a few stones or wooden logs would do.Make sure that it is stable and cover it with an attractive table cloth and place the food on it.Use lightweight plastic chairs or stools for seating ,or spread a dhrrie on the grass ...

Let your child's creativity flow

Give them space and opportunity to do so.Get your carpenter to make a black board which you can put up on the wall at a convenient height.Now let your child scribble to her/his hearts content and as the children grow older they may use the space for sketching or writing messages,jot down thoughts and reminders about home work or school work...

Dont throw your child's Art work

Children are quite possessive about their work and feel happy when parents and others appreciate it . So, dont throw your children's art work,instead encourage them to preserve it , by sticking it on a cardboard and make colorful frame by using shells , pieces of colorful straws ,sticks or any other scrap material and display it on the walls in their room.

Get more out of your cupboard or wardrobe

When you live in a small house and have to make use of every little corner , you need to come up with some innovative ideas to make life easier and more comfortable .The outside of our cup board and wardrobe doors can hold a lot. Get a good carpenter to fix some hooks on which you can hang your handbags,belts and other knick knacks that you use frequently. Also get a cloth hold- all , made with multiple pockets that can be hung on the door.You can keep hand kerchiefs , scarves,socks..

Delight in Order

Most people feel that a home is a place where they can do what they want and that there is delight in disorder.But there is even more delight in an orderly home since it gives out positive energy.So, take an impartial look around and make sure that your home,office or garden is well organized and not neglected and an eye sore however much you may delight in it ..

Plan a study room for your children

Space constraint makes it impossible these days to have luxuries like an independent study, and many people use their dining table as their study table. However, with a bit of imagination and planning one can utilise any extra cupboard in the bedroom or hall to create a compact workspace . You can get your carpenter or if you are good at DIY jobs it is easy to create a few shelf and a set of drawers that can be placed according to your convenience to store your files,folders and reference books . You can place your computer laptop on the middle shelf, also have a space for a stool or a chair that can be pushed in while not in use.The best part about this is that you can literally shut out your work space when not in use.

For those who love stitching ,knitting and painting

When you are interested in creative art form, it is imperative to have a work space even if it is a small corner or just a drawer .Keep all your supplies well within your reach in one place, in separate boxes and plastic containers .Try to make use of all items that can be recycled from within your home and kitchen.
