Hall Closet Project Done
The hall closet was out of control. We've restored a bit of sanity there. Sorry, the pictures were really hard to take since the closet is smack dab in the middle of a dark entryway. But hopefully you get the idea.
The idea is everyone has one two-prong hook, to hold one jacket, one coat. Everyone has two "cubbies", one with a bin for shoes, one cubby to put your bag, scarf, whatever. Backpacks go on the floor when the child comes home from school. And that's it.
The upper shelf is currently pretty bare, but I imagine it'll contain "ready-to-go" items like the summer swim bag. We'll see how well we can keep it up, but for now every one seems to be much, much, MUCH better about not leaving shoes/jackets/bags everywhere (and I'm totally guilty of this too).
