Tons of stuff comes into your home every day. Some of it is welcome (hello children) and some we can do without (like muddy snow and junk mail). The entryway is the first line of defense against the outside world, and helps you keep the useless stuff out, and the good stuff clean and organized. Keep this space in shape, and you're well positioned to keep your life running smoothly and your entire home functioning at its best.
This checklist is all the suggested steps to get your entryway clean and organized. The goal here is to create a space that you'll want to really use each time you come into your home, and also have smoother sailing on your way out. It's just another tool for maintaining a happy and healthy home.

And if you like these kind of reminders and to-do lists, sign up for the Weekend Projects email. Each Friday we'll send you a gentle nudge in the form of a project to complete that weekend. Each post will include all the info you need to get it done. If you feel like doing it then, and it makes sense for your home, that's great. If not, wait until the following week's task, or choose from any other past projects to do instead. It's a "Choose Your Own Adventure" approach to home maintenance.
