It’s day twenty-one! Can you believe it? We have come so far together and we only have ten more days to go. Today we will organize your entryway with 20 frugal ideas. If you have missed any days in this challenge head on back to day one in Organize your Home in 31 days the Frugal Way.
Everyone has a different entryway to their home or apartment. We actually have three entryways in our 1903 farmhouse. The front door, which leads into the living room. The side door that leads directly to the basement and finally the back entryway that leads into the mudroom and then the kitchen. Our family only ever uses the back door when leaving or entering our home. The mudroom functions as a coat closet, shoe collector, pet paraphernalia receptacle and much much more. I am sure your main entryway is the same way. I find that the mudroom is continually the messiest room in the house!
When you see this list please don’t head to the store to purchase some fancy storage facility! First shop your home…you will be amazed at what you will find. For example, the hooks in my mudroom came out of an unused portion of my bedroom closet. My shoe storage is the top half or a vintage bookcase. My umbrella holder came from a garage sale and my mirror and baskets had been given to us at some point and we re-used them.
