"In reality, this means that entryways are drop zones. Car keys, purses, grocery bags and backpacks — not to mention mail, cell phones, and shoes, coats and scarves — all end up being carried into in this space. Visitors are often squeezed in amid the many everyday items. Serving as a bridge between private and public spaces, a place to meet guests, and an area for controlling the clutter of everyday life is a lot to ask of one small space. Meeting all these needs without overwhelming either the room or the people in it takes careful planning."
What do you do with your jackets and accesories when you arrive home? Let´s find a place for everything so we can put everything in its place. :)
Day 1: handbags and backpacks. Do you have a place to hang your bag? We added a side table to the desk under the stairs for the kids backpacks. Don´t look too closely at the desk. ;) We´ll handle that next week.
Day 2: jackets and scarves. Do you have a place to hang your coat? What about the scarves? I usually wear lightweight ones so I wear them all day long and they go to their shelf at night. Nowadays more and more my scarves find their way to my daughter´s room. Lol!
Day 3: umbrellas Do you have a designated place for the family´s umbrellas? Do you have a place for wet ones? If you go back to day 1 and look at the side table you will see Tatiana´s umbrella and my own. Matias (17) has decided umbrellas are not cool and doesn´t use one and hubbie keeps his in the car.
Why this picture? you ask. Because that is the corner where our umbrella basket would have been if we had ever bought it! :D
Day 4: boots Picture this scene. muddy boots, wet shoes, nice clean floor. What do you do?
Day 7: take a day off. Rest and do something fun.
