The Dower Chest, better known as a Hope Chest or Blanket Chest in present time, is referred to by the Pennsylvania Dutch as Ausschteier Kischt. This piece of furniture is the most cherished and most representative of the Germanic Immigrants who came to live in Pennsylvania during the late 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries.Young girls between the ages of eight to ten were given Hope Chests inscribed with their names and usually the date of presentation. This storage chest was filled with household items that the girl made, was given or purchased in anticipation of her future marriage. On her wedding day, this completely filled Hope Chest was proudly placed in the "Wedding Wagon" to be taken to her new home. Items would have included blankets, bed linens, baby clothes, quilts and some family heirlooms.

When it comes time to declutter, organize, and tidy things up, you'll find that storage systems are a great help. Even if you don't have the budget to buy expensive organizers, you can still set up a system using boxes. The goal is to organize your possessions in a logical and orderly way and then keep them like that so they don't get out of hand in your storage system. You can use boxes, storage bins, peg boards, and all kinds of gadgets to help you keep your stuff separated and easy to locate.
