Create an Entryway Drop-Zone
In your home create a drop-zone to land your stuff when you first walk through the door after a long day of work, play, or errands. It doesn't have to be big and fancy like we often see in the magazines. It can be as simple as a small table and a hook for your purse and coat. The important element is to make sure it's organized with a place to put things like mail, keys, receipts, sunglasses, cell phone, shoes and shopping bags. Having a drop-zone will help stop clutter from accumulating in other areas of your home. If you live with others, create a place for everyone to drop their things and get all on board to help keep it maintained and messy-free.
