Often the start of a New Year means finding a place to put away all of the shiny new Christmas presents. Which consequently starts the ball rolling to move old stuff to a different spot of ‘less importance’ or stack it on the donation pile. In countries Great Britain and Australia, they actually have a holiday the day immediately following Christmas called ‘Boxing Day’ for this very phenomenon.
One solution is to make every piece of furniture in your home a workhorse in itself. Stash toys in storage ottomans, tuck magazines in coffee tables with extra drawers and shelves or get a bed that has drawers built into the frame.

We know, it sounds crazy. Collin Cook, sales manager of our Idaho Falls location, ranks as the most knowledgeable sleep expert in the nation; the geek part we already knew about.
Seriously, in a recent Furniture Today article, Cook was anointed as Leggett & Platt's "Geek Overlord", by managing to win 18 of 100 days of questions about mattresses, foundations and the mattress industry in general. Leggett & Platt is a mattress industry insider who wants to become more known publicly and among peers as a mattress company. If you've ever pulled out a sleeper sofa, you've probably seen the Leggett & Platt name on the frame mechanism and the plush mattress that hides inside.
Cook won a big pot of money, but it's already spent. They say timing is everything, and it just so happens that Cook's wife Alysia needed to have an expensive procedure to repair a recently discovered hole in her heart. Guess it's good to have the nation's #1 Sleep Geek around the house.
If you've been experiencing symptoms of poor sleep, like tingling arms or restlessness, come check in with the nation's #1 Sleep Geek and get the answers you've been looking for to a a better night's sleep. Blacker's carries the latest in traditional, memory foam and latex mattress designs by Serta, Simmons, Tempur-pedic, and Englander.

Look at this gorgeous pot of fall gourds, leaves and branches spotted on the porch of a little log cabin in Jackson Hole this past weekend.
Blacker's suggests bringing fall's bursts of color indoors as well by creating an easy centerpiece of branches.
Use a simple glass vase filled with water and a bouquet trimmed from your favorite maple, dogwood or bush with the brightest hues. Just fill it with water and let the architectural shape of the branches combined with the richly colored leaves take center stage.
Whatever you do with your fall decor, make it personal and show your own true style.
Pumpkins are another simple way to embrace fall. Blacker's is inspired by Southern Living's article on 5 Easy Ways to Decorate Pumpkins, check it out if you need help getting started.
Another easy way to cozy up your home for fall is with a plush new occasional chair; Blacker's Fall Savings Event is happening now and the store is packed with chairs in rich chenilles, velvets and patterned upholstery for every room.
