De-Clutter Your Entryway {28 Days to De-Clutter}

Posted Feb 24 2013 12:01am
De-Cluttered Entryway Yesterday my friend Karla helped us clean out the board game clutter . Today, we’re going in an entirely different direction and working on the entryway. If you’re keeping up with these challenges, join our  28 Days to De-Clutter Facebook Event page  and share your excitement with the rest of us as you accomplish each task! If you’re just joining us now, you can .

The entryway (or foyer or whatever you want to call it) is the first thing people see when they enter your home, so it’s your best chance to make a good first impression. I haven’t had a lot to work with up to this point in my life because my entryways have consisted of a narrow hallway-type space about 3 inches wider than the door itself! The only thing that fits in that narrow space is some sort of hook system for hanging coats and bags, so that’s what I’ve done. But I’ve kind of extended the entryway into the main living area, and set up a table there with a crystal bowl that holds all of my DH’s pocket stuff (wallet, keys, phone, loose change, etc.). It’s a great system, but it needs to be kept up because over time those hooks get crowded with all kinds of different coats and bags, and the crystal bowl gets full of, well, junk.

Whether or not you’re happy with the system you have, it needs de-cluttering periodically in order to maintain it, so that’s what we’re going to do today!

Set your timer for 10 minutes, and…


Clean out the entryway by removing any of the following:

  • Items that don’t belong there
  • Out-of-season coats or other accessories
  • Shoes (unless you have a method for organizing shoes there)
  • Loose change

Return items to their various locations throughout the house, or put them in a bag (hang it on the doorknob so you’ll remember it!) to return to their rightful owner.

Hang up out of season coats and other belongings in your newly organized coat closet.  Put everything else neatly in its place, and done!
