Cleaning Up Clutter

I like for things in my house to have a home. Organizing is one of my favorite past times, and I confess - my electronic label maker is my favorite high tech gadget. 

But with two little boys, a very enthusiastic Brittany and a husband who loves the outdoors, stuff seems to pile up by the back door. Right now I'm looking at three pairs of flip flops, two school bags, a soccer ball and an electric dog collar. And I don't have anywhere to put it...which drives me crazy! 

So in my next life, I'd love to have a mud room. The examples below are some of my favorites. Cubbies and hooks are hidden behind simple cabinet doors. Everyone has a place to throw all of their stuff...and Mom doesn't have to look at any of it!

And there's the perfect place to put the dog bed, too!
