9. Don’t let office clutter creep into your living room. If you work from a living room, it’s amazing how quickly office clutter can sneak in. A file here, a stack of expense receipts there, and before you know it there are multiple work items out on display, which is the last thing you need when you’re trying to switch off at the end of the day. Keep a basket or box just for office bits and pieces and sweep everything into it at the end of the day, then put it somewhere out of sight until you need it again.
… simply keep extra blankets handy in rooms where you like to lounge. Fill a basket or trunk with a supply of soft wool and fleece throws. Everyone in the room will want one, especially if you’re keeping that thermostat low to save energy.
Painted-number basket. Give a plain wicker basket new life with the addition of a single large number. Use a premade stencil or create your own using a number printed onto card stock and then cut out. Spray paint is a quick way to apply paint to a bumpy surface, but the stenciling can also be done with liquid paint and a bit of patience.
