I've been reading http://orgjunkie.com/ for a couple of months now. I've been completely inspired. I really do need all the help I can get with getting my life organized. Every month is a focus in one area of the house and this month is the entry area.
I found my inspiration and dug in. I made my kids a backpack station!!!! I didn't take before pictures, but I had coats on the hanger, a big basket of gloves and beanies on top, a binder full of warranties and information for my house on top, leaf for the table, bags, and the vacuum cleaner. No shelving, no hooks. The above picture is how it looks now. I put in a small 2 cubbie shelf, a shoe shelf on top of that, 3 hooks for the backpacks and jackets for 3 kids. In the cloth cubbie I have the hats and gloves for the winter. On top I have extra bags and a basket for something I don't know yet. Oh, I almost forgot. In the empy cubbie on bottom is where I put my purse.
Stop by and tell me what you think.
