When you come home, do you open the door to a tidy entryway or do you face a cluttered space that feels stressful and may make any guest feel unwelcome?

It’s time to organize your entryway or foyer!  This is the space in your home that, if organized well, can save you time when you rush out every morning.


Have a designated spot to collect items such as umbrellas and jackets. When choosing an umbrella stand, you can DIY it but make sure that the container is heavy enough to stand upright with several umbrellas in different sizes inside it.

Have another designated spot for things that you need to grab right before you leave every day.  You can use a bowl for spare change, a bin for receipts and several hooks for keys.

When hanging keys, make sure that each is labelled properly to save you time trying to guess which is which!

Say no to grimy shoes entering your home!  Keep rubber shoes or boots on a tray right by the door and a container of slippers to change into.  This way, you also feel relaxed right away the moment you come home.

I almost always forget to put perfume on.  So why not put perfume bottles on display on display the foyer table!  Not only does it make the space look attractive, you will also never leave the house again without any perfume on.

If you are an animal lover like me, then you will also need to designate a spot at the entryway for your pet’s leash, treats, dog bags and travel water bowl.
