The “drop zone”

Every house has a “drop zone” where everyone just “drops” their stuff as they come in. Take a look and see what gets dropped then figure out how to organize it! For us, it was the kitchen. Everything from mail, newspapers, dog leashes, coats, backpacks….. Since we come in from the garage through the laundry room, we hung up a coat rack (it holds the dog leashes, too) and a key rack. Now everything gets dropped in a specific spot and no more “Where’s my keys???”
