Get Organized! Create a Drop Zone!
Every household needs a drop zone! A drop zone is an area, closest to the main entryway and exit for the family, designated to corral all things that come into the home and should leave the home again. Such items include school bags, shoes, mail, keys, briefcases, purses, sunglasses, etc. Without a drop zone, it’s easy to forget or lose an item that you need at a moment’s notice and it’s also easy for your home to become cluttered and disorganized by mail, papers, etc.
To create a drop zone, create a space next to the most used entryway and exit, that includes baskets, hooks, trays, and mailboxes. Take a cue from some of my favorite drop zones below. 🙂
