This week's tips:
Fall is here!

  • Before you buy new clothing for fall, clean closets and check what you need. You may be surprised by how much you own, especially if you alter or clean items.
  • Celebrate one new occasion in September, such as Grandparents' Day.
  • Convert a family room into a music room with soundproof walls using wool felt on the walls that are padded to muffle the sound. A handsome complement in the room might be leather floor tiles and a comfy chair in which to listen to your favorite tunes.
  • To add a bit of fun and cach√© to your entertaining, purchase a popcorn machine and build an entertainment room around it. Add a large screen television set, good sound system, a juke box in the corner and decorate with a theme.
  • Have a back-to-school party for parents, with children nowhere in sight. Serve favorite kid food such as hot dogs, fries, popcorn, ice cream sundaes and shiny red apples. Ask everyone to tell their favorite school horror story.
