In my last post, I said I was going to do some little things around the house to get more organized. I stuck to my word, and organized our front porch.
The front porch is where we keep our shoes – and dump other stuff when we walk in the door. Here’s what it looked like before:
The shoe baskets were mismatched, but more importantly one was broken and they were all overstuffed.
I replaced these baskets with smaller, but taller, baskets from Target.
I knew, as soon as I saw these baskets, they’d be perfect for shoe storage.
I emptied the old baskets and put away the off-season shoes, then put the too-small shoes in the donate pile.
The porch looks so much better!
It’s amazing what a difference such a small change makes! And, since it’s the first thing we see when we walk in, it changes how I feel when I walk in the house. Rather than feeling chaos and mess, I feel calmer.
Sometimes little changes make all the difference.
