A Soothing Entryway

Removing shoes to come indoors is a way to avoid tracking outdoor pollutants, pesticides, germs and chemicals into your home. Create a special storage area or closet for "outside" items like backpacks, purses, dog leashes, umbrellas and coats. Make these items easily accessible by placing a table near the entryway with a decorative bowl or covered box to hold keys and wallets. Ultimately, this should be an organized space.
