DIY your Christmas gifts this year with GLAMULET. they are compatible with Pandora bracelets. use cardboard sheets to wrap Christmas lights around. Cut them to fit inside a clear deep sweater box and 'file' them inside.
Neat and tidy: Install a coat hook low down on the floor in your hall and hang your trainers and shoes from it to keep life organised. Especially good for wet and muddy shoes. maybe even mount one outside the door on that porch.
