WHAT YOU'LL NEED

STEP 1

Hang two sets of hooks - one for the kids and one for the grown-ups

Place hooks in your entryway for coats and bags. If you’ve got small kids in the family, hang a second set at their level, to create extra storage and encourage independence.

Place a boot tray by the door

Whether it’s wet boots or muddy shoes, a boot tray by the door will keep your entryway clean, dry and clear of footwear.

STEP 3

Install clothing and equipment storage near the door

It’s time to leave for practice, but where’s the gear? Clothing and activity storage near the door is a perfect way to keep track of equipment bags.

STEP 4

Baskets can be placed on shelves for easy access

When it comes to organizing, give each family member their own basket to stash personal items. You can also use baskets for things like incoming mail, extra keys and garbage bag tags.

STEP 5

Use a chalk wall to stay organized

Leaving reminders for family on a chalk wall by the entryway can be helpful. It’s a great way for everyone to stay organized and on-track.

STEP 6

Always hang a mirror

A mirror in the entryway is a great addition. It not only gives you a chance for a last-minute check that you’re ready to face the day, but it also reflects light, making a potentially tight space feel bigger and brighter.
