This is the year of organizing in my house. I really want to take my time and figure out what needs to stay, what needs to go, and what organization tools are going to work for my family and I. Since I really want to find sustainable and efficient organization for my house. I am taking it slow and conquering space by space. This month I tackled the back entryway.
Our back entryway is a pretty open space with only a dresser against a wall for storage. As time wore on I noticed that things would start to pile against the walls, pile on top of the dresser, and pile on the floor into forever growing piles. To prevent this chaotic mess from happening again and again. I first laid down a rug that would hopefully catch a lot of the dirt on peoples shoes preventing them from dragging it through the house. I then placed a fair sized bench along the wall with baskets undernth. The baskets are used as storage bins for all sorts of shoes. The last addition that I made was adding in a wall mount with hooks. This way all of the coats, scarfs, leashes, and hats had a home that would be a lot more visually pleasing than the floor.
Through this process of building permeant homes for such things like raincoats and dog leashes. I did make sure to really evaluate if things needed to stay in my home or if it was best to toss them. It may have taken me a whole day to get under control, but I am extremely proud of how it turned out. I also have high hopes that my family and I will be able to keep our back entryway nice and organized all year round.
