Five Ways to Stop Clothing Clutter At The Door

by Tina ~ August 31st, 2010.
  1. Provide each family member with a roomy “drop” basket to contain items such as backpacks, books, mittens, school projects, etc. This will ensure that little ends up on the floor or is trailed through the house. (No excuses for misplaced items either!).
  2. Bowl for keysHide or group the clutter. Store footwear under an entry bench; hang coats on wall racks.
  3. Designate a decorative bowl near your front or back door for all car and house keys.
  4. Peg and 3M removable hooks are an underused clutter buster. Keep kids’ gear in order. In a mud room, hang pegs about 3 feet high so little ones can hang up coats and backpacks as soon as they step inside. Have hooks at adult height or a coat rack for guests.
  5. In your coat closet, hang a shoe organizer on the back of the door. The pockets are perfect for storing hats, scarves, and gloves.
