When I tried to get our mudroom organized, we didn’t have to deal with winter jackets, hats, snow pants, etc.  I guess I didn’t think that far in advance.  Well, when winter hit, our mudroom became a dumping ground for every article of clothing that everyone ever had.  It was bad.  Like, really bad!  So I needed to find a better way to keep coats and stuff organized.

I had to come to terms that the system I tried to create for coats, bags, etc., wasn’t working for us.  We were planning on getting cubbies in the near future, just not this year.  But the hubby couldn’t work from home because he felt really disorganized in that space, and I wasn’t getting anything done because I just tried to avoid that whole area all together.  So we caved and got really nice cubbies to hold bags, shoes, purses and any other goodie that can be stored there.

I wanted everyone to have their own space for their things and I wanted cabinets to hid things.  We also needed space for lots of shoes.

We found an amazing company called All About Closets.   They came out to help us come up with a plan for the space.  They listened to all of my needs and wants, and created this wonderful system for us.

These cubbies were a life saver!  They are keeping us really organized and there are no more shoes spread out across the room!  Once winter hits, I am not worried about where the jackets, hats, gloves, etc. are going to go!
