Hang your boots using pant hangers with sliding clips without "teeth". It keeps the boots from flopping over on the floor and eliminates the need to keep the cumbersome cardboard boxes they come in. Clip only the insides of the boots so marks don't show.
"Crap" baskets as the creator calls them... "If I see or collect any one's crap throughout the house, it goes in that person's basket. When they are on their way upstairs, they need to either take their crap or just take the whole basket full of crap with them."
