Does running out the door seem like more of a hassle than it is worth sometimes because you have too many things to manage? If so, then you may want to consider organizing your foyer to make it easier to walk out the door without missing anything. It could be a simple task of finding a shelving unit to hold all of your valuables, or it could be a little more involved if you have too many items in that small entryway. Here are a few ideas that may make getting out the door just a bit easier.
Make Your Entrance and Exit Point Consistent
It doesn’t matter if you come and go from the foyer by the front door or the mudroom in the back, you should make your routine as consistent as you can. This will help you develop a routine of what you need or don’t, and where it all goes. Make sure that you also have a home for everything you need on a daily basis. From your phone to your keys to your briefcase, make sure each item has a location it should be set in each time you come back home.
Remove Unnecessary from the Entire Room
If you are the type to keep that coat rack near the front door because a dear aunt left it to you, but you never use it, you should consider not having it taking up valuable space any longer. Don’t get rid of it or banish it to the garage – store it in a secure storage facility where the temperatures are kept even and your items do not get exposed to the elements when your car comes in and out. Take anything that is not regularly used out of your entryway so that you have room for what you actually need there.
Don’t Bring In Items You Will Just Be Bringing Back Out
When you get home from work, if you know that the only thing you are going to do is bring something in with you that will come back out unchanged in the morning, leave it in the car. It is less likely to get forgotten about, and it will not take up any needed space in your home. It can help you get in and out the door quicker, and make it to where you leave the house fully prepared for whatever your day holds.
