Making your home work for you: Entryway

Welcome to the next tip for making your home WORK for you.

Today, we're looking at simple ways to work your entryway ... especially if you don't actually have a real entryway and your front door opens straight into the living room, like ours does. (You can see the whole of our entryway area here.)

(P.S I have shared a version of this at Live Simple by Annie, but I want to share it here too :)

Simple, right?

1. Coat hooks.
It doesn't get much simpler, but these hooks have changed our lives and I want to riddle the entire house with them. I never knew how handy they could be. (We have virtually the exact same set-up at the top of the stairs, where the scarves are replaced with 'bum clothes' for home-days, and the shoes are replaced with slippers. I recommend it!)

2.  Two bowls.
Yes two. In our case, a key bowl for keys and cards, and a tiny bowl for cuff-links and small-change. In reality they are both overflowing (we could use even more bowls I guess?!), but I tidied for you.

3. A shoe rack
Ours was horribly cheap and it does tend to flop to one side, but whatever, it works!
