Enter at Your Own Risk
Very often the entrance of a home is a dumping ground for shoes, boots, coats, and backpacks. Janine Adams, professional organizer and owner at a Peace of Mind Organizing in St. Louis, Missouri recommends, “Have a designated place for everything.”
- Hang a key rack by the door so you place your keys there every time . This completely eliminates the lost keys, and wasted time.
- For families with children, create a space for footwear, coats, and backpacks . Stacked cube shelves hold shoes or boots, along with hats and gloves. Be sure to place a label for each child’s space. And have hooks at the children’s heights for their backpacks and coats so they’re readily accessible.
- Keep only what you need at the door . Adams suggests keeping only the daily footwear at the entrance. “Other shoes might logically go in the bedroom,” she said.
