Set up clutter collectors where items naturally tend to gather, like a bowl on a table for keys and loose change, a set of tiered baskets for mail and school paperwork, a coat tree or wall hooks for outerwear and backpacks. Place a basket or shoe rack near the door to hold shoes.
We would need one this big... Repurposed old door, headboard, kitchen cabinet door, door jamb, etc. into a hall tree. I just finished this one! Use promo code PINTEREST on my Etsy site to save off any order!
