Tip: Keep it together

When you're planning to decorate or remodel a room keep everything involved in the project in one place - a notebook for magazine pages with ideas, a crate in the car for wallpaper books, tile and flooring samples, and a folder in your PDF for contact information for contractors and links to Web sites with information you want.
