Set up clutter collectors where items naturally tend to gather, like a bowl on a table for keys and loose change, a set of tiered baskets for mail and school paperwork, a coat tree or wall hooks for outerwear and backpacks. Place a basket or shoe rack near the door to hold shoes.

I like this "mud room" idea for the entry way. Cubbies for keys and sunglasses, bench for my purse and for me to sit on while I take my shoes off, and hooks for guests.

love this idea for the closet. spray paint the crates to colors you want and add picture or print of what is in it!
