organized to a point

An organized home can look like many things. Mine tends to look like open shelves with names labeled on them. The kids come home from school, and walk right to this spot. Here we can all take off shoes, put our lunch boxes on the shelve, our homework and other school items in the baskets, and sun hats and gardening tools on the top shelf in baskets. In winter, the top is where hats and mittens go.
the coat hooks are low so the kids can do it all themselves, and, although you cant see it, there are names above the hooks so coats and bags go in the right spot. This way, in the morning when we are trying to get out the door, we can usually find the pieces we need pretty easily.
