Organizing the entry- 7 ways


The next area we are looking at in this series of organzing is the entry way or command centers. (Check out kitchens here and baths here.)  If everyone has a designated place for those things they bring in and out- keys, bags, phones, work, homework- getting out the door on time can be so much easier.


1. Hang some shelves and a rail with hooks and add pretty features.
 
 
 
2. Hang a wall organizer for paper clutter and a pretty cork board.
 
 
 
3. Turn a closet into an entryway nook.
 
 
 
4. Use small bookcases and wall cubbies if you are short on space in the entry.
 
 
 
5. No real entry? or no room? Go to the corner and set up a command center with clipboards and hooks.
 
 
 
6. Create a catch-all corner with hooks, zippered clutches and baskets.
 
 
 
7. Add hooks to a shelf and utilize personalized tote bags to hold each family members "in and out stuff".  Add a chalkboard for lists or reminders.

  2. Entryways can easily become a Dump Zone if we're not careful. It helps to have beautiful spaces like the ones you've pictures to inspire us to stay organized!
