Space Organization

In and Out Zone:

Alejandra Castillo made a video about this topic. I absolutely agree 100 % that this a necessary area. I believe everyone needs a “In & Out ” area.Check out her video here.

  • Returns to the store
  • Borrowed items from friends or family
  • Items I need to take back to work etc…
  • Packages to mail
  • Donations to drop off

Anything that will not be stored in your home permanently.  These are usually the items that end up landing on the back of a chair, the door knob or floor if there is no other place to place things. I usually advise for this area to live in the garage or closest to the door you enter & exit through.

 

If you enter your garage I recommend something like this to catch everything:

But if you enter through the front door I recommend function over aesthetics. This means you will want lots of matching Bins for things like scarves, gloves, hats etc….
