One thing that has helped us tremendously with a certain 'hot spot' in our home is the great little invention called the stair basket! Our stairs tend to be a hot spot which accumulates all the things that somehow make it down the stairs but never quite make it back up. All these things tend to gather themselves along the bottom two or three steps which is not only unsightly but also is a bit of a hazard for those of us going up and down the steps.
The solution to this problem was our stair basket. It sits at the bottom of the steps and anything that needs to go upstairs is put in the basket. Then twice a day, it is Cindy Lou's job to carry the basket of goodies upstairs and put them all in the owner's bedroom. First of all, it's cute! Secondly, the stair basket eliminates the hazard and unsightly mess that used to dominate the bottom of our steps! It works for us!
