Organization On A Budget

My family has been having a problem with throwing all of their stuff right in front of the door when they get home. After about breaking my neck tripping over the stuff a few times I decided something needed to change.This is what I really wanted to get.
Coat Locker with Front Step

With a hefty price tag of almost $300 I knew that wasn't happening, so it was time to get creative. I ended up with this for about $50 and I like it a lot better. I got the bins at Dollar Tree and made labels for each person in the family to go on them. The coat hooks, shelf, and shoe organizer all came from Lowes and there is a place for everything imaginable that comes home at the end of the day!

I love how you made your own. It looks perfect. I can't wait to get our family room painted so I can put ours in...

Thanks for sharing!

I like that. I want to do something like that in the garage. Especially since winter is around the corner for wet boots.
