Keep things within reach for your children. There's not a chance that they can complain about not reaching something to hang up a coat or backpack, and it will clear up any chance of tripping over items thrown in the hallway!
Loose papers to sign and homework cannot get misplaced by using magazine or file holders mounted vertically to the wall. The compartments help to keep things tidy and easy to grab as they head out the door.
Organizing schedules can often be the hardest to keep up. Create a large display calendar to manage everyone's places to be and dates to keep in mind. You can create a large calendar easile and for low cost by getting corkboard, and painting or utilizing tape for lines. Super cute and functional!

Benches offer a welcoming spot to kick off shoes and give everyone time to hang up coats, bags and put away items in storage cubbies. And make sure to make your mudroom inviting and as pleasing as the rest of your home: add family photographs, flowers and art to the walls and shelves.
Another option to keep in mind for space and costs is to get a cute console, and add bulletins above it. File folders on the table keep the homework tidy, and the rubber mat will avoid any muddy or wet shoes from cluttering up your floor.
