Welcome to the Organize Now Challenge!
This week we are focusing on Week 20 in the book, Organize Now! a week-by-week guide to simplify your space and your life.
Organize Your Entryway and Mudroom
This week I am featuring Linda of Tapas Lifestyle
In the chapter, “Organize Your Entryway or Mudroom”, Jennifer contrasts a formal entryway that consists of a chandelier and a single table holding a vase of fresh flowers and the “real” entrance to a home where everything may seem to pile up and be cluttered. I found this week’s challenge, a little bit challenging due to the fact that we do not have a “real entryway/mudroom” because of the way our condo is setup. There is not much room around our entryways. We have two entrances, the front door, which we hardly ever use, and the back door, which is our main entry. Even though we do not have a formal entryway or mudroom, I was able to apply Jennifer’s tips in organizing the other areas/surfaces in our home, which were becoming our dumping grounds for everything we brought in from the outside.
I love a lot of family/friends pictures in our home. Due to spacial limits, I had to be creative in how I was to arrange pictures. We actually attached these wires into the walls, but if you live in a rental or do not want something so permanent, look at the following links for similar ideas…
