Decluttering doesn't mean you have to get rid of all of your belongings. Even if you did, clutter would return as you began collecting stuff again. Decluttering is more about becoming organized. If your belongings don't have a permanent storage place they are always returned to when you finish with them, you will leave them laying around or stash them in drawers never to be seen again. Next time you need a tool, you won't be able to find it. You'll have a whole house full of stuff yet you won't know where anything is because you have one big unorganized mess. It is nearly impossible to have a smooth flowing carefree life when you live with clutter.
The design styles, dimensions and construction types differ among these Hope Chests which shows that the craftsmen did not copy each others work. The foot design changes from Dower Chest to Dower Chest with a large variety of bracket feet, rounded ball feet or no feet at all. Some Hope Chests had two or three drawers along the bottom, while others had none. Many Blanket Chests had inlay designs or special painted designs.
Many wood workers back then,as now, understood the importance of quality workmanship, which does include the use of the best wood available. Most hope chests made in America during the 1700's and 1800's were constructed with the hardwoods found growing in the surrounding areas of their towns. Walnut, Cherry and Oak were the prime choices along with an Eastern Pine which was also a hardwood type. Along the Eastern Seaboard, some wood artisans also used hardwoods imported from South America know for their beautiful 'inner glow' quality finish such as Mahogany.

Most people tend to have one drawer in the kitchen that turns into a catch-all draw that is filled with all kinds of odds and ends. Some of the things are a complete mystery as to their purpose or function. Do you have just one of these junk drawers or are all of your drawers disorganized?
