Trouble Spot: Hallway Closet: Do you walk in the door only to trip over shoes, boots, book bags, and coats? Get ready for company by cleaning out your coat closet and removing anything that doesn't belong there. Use baskets on shelves to hold small items, and include extra hangers for guests' jackets. Add boot trays to the entry to catch melting snow from shoes.
