Episode 057: A Welcoming Entryway



To continue our Spring Cleaning Series this month, I’m talking about how to make our entryway a welcoming place for our guests and ourselves!


It’s so easy to come into our home with our arms full of stuff like a stack of mail, keys, bags, sunglasses, groceries, work items, kid activities, coats, backpacks, and drop them on the floor or side table with the best of intentions of putting them away later.


Suddenly our entryway becomes a dumping ground for everything we’ve used that day, plus the entire family’s shoes they’ve worn throughout the week. It looks more like a locker room that a tornado blew through than a great first impression that paints a picture of our inviting home.


We can do better! On this episode I talk about some simple and very effective ways to clear the clutter, use some best practices for keeping it looking tidy as you organize on autopilot, and add some style that represents you in your entryway and says, “Welcome!”
