I put up the shoe rack a couple of days ago. The shoes had been overflowing in a basket in the mudroom, but now things are nice and tidy.
My excuse for waiting so long to organize was that I'd been considering turning the mudroom into more of a coat room. But it turns out that the mudroom is just too small. I thought thing might looked cramped in there if I tried to put up a coat rack. And since we have a coat closet, I figured we should use it. The only drawback is that it's next to the front door and we always come in through the side door.
Total makeover cost: $22 ($16 shoe organizer and $6 basket).
