An unkempt entry is the bane of my existence. It makes me gag, curse, howl and wince! That said, I solemnly pledge, no longer, to excuse it with "but I have 3 kids!!!" (pleading for some sort of cowardly defense).
Every disarray can be transformed into something orderly - it just takes a thorough quest of replacements for the disorderly! Lucky for you - I'm sharing quite a few - of the lifesaving items that have, can + positively will save my chaotic home entry! A spot for the shoes, the keys and the scarves, a home for the mail that would otherwise be flung away upon the counter afar!
