Address Each Clutter "Problem Spot"

There are several things that I try to do to keep clutter down. When you walk in our door, you are in the kitchen. There's the table which is the first place that catches everything that people walk in the door with whether its mail, school bags, etc. Now, I tell everyone that they need to put it where it belongs. Then they kick their shoes off for someone else to trip over. Now, there's a basket for the shoes/sandals to go into.

Our youngest is in football so we have to keep that all gathered for practice. We keep that ALL in a spare clothes basket. He can take it all with him to the bathroom to get ready. Very handy. We go through the magazines weekly and get rid of the ones we don't want. When we walk in with the mail all the 'junk mail' goes directly to the trash can. This all helps immensely with our family.

I recently hung a decorative door knob on the wall at the foot of our stairs (it's crystal on a wooden base and then has two hooks below it)...my kids now know that when they come in from school to hang their backpacks and jackets there immediatly.
