Hi Tim, if the front door is wood then taking a wood plane
to the sides will fix what you're describing, and a plane
can be obtained at the local hardware store for a few bucks.
However, before you do anything first make sure that it's
wood, second make sure that the door jam is not out of
alignment, then third look to see where it's binding. The
areas where it's binding are the ONLY areas that you want to
plane. The best method to determine how much to plane off is
with the door open pull it toward the jam (don't close it) and
measure the areas that come in contact with the jam. Sometimes
you can use a pencil (if room permits) to trace the offending
areas. Good luck, and I hope this helps!
