6 creative drop spots for the foyer-challenged

    I have made a key rack from a bottom Lego plate and MDF board. As my hubby is a Star Wars nerd, we have Star Wars Lego key chains on almost all our keys. Looks pretty neat with the entire saga hanging upside down on the blue bottom plate. In addition to the Lego plate, the key rack has a little shelf including hooks underneath it for miscellaneous items that aren’t attached to a Lego figure. Now I also have a small bag hanging there for items that I don’t need everyday which helps the construction swallow a wast amount of stuff, and all I need is still easily accessible in the morning. We call it the launch pad…

    Cubbies and baskets work for us. Everyone in the family has a cubbie with a basket in it for their work/school gear that HAS to be in their hands the next morning.  We are working on getting everyone in the habit of making sure their stuff is in the cubbie the night before (backpacks, sports uniforms, etc). It will take some reminders before it becomes habit (and some role modeling from the parents).

    An idea that I’ve used for many clients are Expedit Cabinets from Ikea…you can use the “4” square single unit or put them together as a base and have bins for the whole family great for winter hats, mittens, the pets and the kids school “stuff” of which there is plenty!  I have found these units work wonders in many rooms of the house – even the laundry room…
