We mounted a hook on the back of our front door to create a place to hang the dogs’ leashes, or coats and umbrellas when they need to hang to dry. Dog bags and treats are also kept by the front door, hidden away atop the fridge.

I keep a “catch-all bowl” for keys, loose change and whatever else is rattling around in our pockets at the end of the day on the edge of the bookcase.
