With school starting back, there’s the clutter that comes with it. If you are like me the paperwork, backpacks, lunch boxes, and sports gear all end up on the dining room table or at the back door. I think being organized is helps you keep a clear head, it teaches your kids to become organized, and will help the hectic mornings run a little smoother. As I look for a picture of an organized mudroom for inspiration I see numerous custom-built cabinets and built-ins that cost hundreds to thousands to build, but for many of us that is not an option. If you can come up with five spare feet of wall and floor space there’s still hope for getting your kiddos a little more organized and momma a little happier.
