I have a small house, and I don't have a mud room, so I only have a limited amount of space to work with. I decided to use the small wall beside the door that connects my garage to my house. This is where my boys put on their boots, so it is the perfect place for them to put on their hats and mitts.
I purchased cheap baskets at the dollar store, and my husband attached them to the wall with some washers and screws. (I like that the baskets have holes in them because the hats and mitts are often slightly wet.)
Each of my boys has their own basket for their hat and mitts, but the baskets could be used for other things too. I am thinking about adding a basket for phones and car keys.
Don't you just love how easy and inexpensive this solution is? Do you have an idea for making the morning rush a little easier? I'd love to hear it.
