The front porch: it's where house meets world--and where visitors get their first impressions.
What does your front porch say about your home? Realtors call this factor "curb appeal": that flash of first impression of any home.

Does clutter-cutting ebb and flow according to your frustration level? Pull the sting: add regular declutter sessions to your calendar. Approaching problem areas in a calm frame of mind boosts decision-making energies.
