Easy Come, Easy Go: Entryway Essentials

December 30, 2011

Having an organized mudroom or entry is crucial to having an organized home. This area is where all the rushing typically happens; grabbing of keys and outer garments, and sloffing off items when you come home. If you’re not careful, it can easily become a dumping ground for keys, coats, gloves, hats, shoes, and so on.

On the other hand, serving as the entrance into your space, it can be a gateway towards order.

The ideal entryway contains the following elements:

– A place to hang coats

– Shoe storage

– A receptacle for winter items

– A permanent place for the essential items like keys, wallets, etc.

This mudroom gets my seal of approval because of the personalized cubbies with hanging clipboards.  What a perfect way to keep your children organized on things such as chores, homework, and other reminders.
