Here is a smart way to keep your shoes by the door - get a coat rack and hang it by the floor. No more messy shoes crowding the door way. Perfect solution for "outside" shoes in the garage. Or back door for outside shoes!
See the "An Entryway Table" in our Organizing Your Home gallery Create a place to set things down temporarily. A demilune (half-round) table or small console, set against a wall, can hold shopping bags and mail while you remove coats and footwear.
