So last week I shared with you guys some inspirational pictures of organized entryways and what I think are the key components of an organized entry.
1.  A place to store the little things (hats, mittens, etc.)
2.  A place for shoes
3.  A place to sit down and take off those shoes
4.  A place to hang coats and umbrellas
5.  A trash can for junk mail and a place to put every thing else
6.  A mirror (hey your entryway is also an exitway - you need to look good when your leaving the house)
7.  A place to leave messages or reminders

So today - I am going to give some great example of these items so you can keep your entry organized and the clutter to a minimum!


I love these cute storage options from Ikea - either the larger one or two smaller ones for just $4.99.

Malla Storage Boxes from Ikea - $4.99

How about a basic mirror in black?  Classic, sleek, and perfect for a small space.
Room Essentials Black Mirror from Target - $14.99


Every time I see the shoe cabinets in the Ikea catalog I just really love the idea of them.  Beautiful cabinets that you can use the top like a console table and then tilt out cubbies underneath to throw shoes in!  Great idea.

Hemens Shoe Cabinet from Ikea - $99.99



How about this storage bench option?  You could could also store shoes and other necessary items in baskets underneath!
River Ridge Storage Bench from Target - $49.99
This rack of hooks is perfect for hanging coats, hats and umbrellas.
Leksvik Rack with Hooks from Ikea - $9.99

I really like this message center - white board, cork board, a place for pictures and a couple hooks!  A great multipurpose item for your entry.
Jot Memo Center from Target - $49.99

You need to have a trash can to throw junk mail and other stuff that you don't want making it any farther through your home that your door!  This one looks good and gets the job done.
Wicker Wastebasket from Walmart - $14.54

Finally how about this classic mission style console table.  Perfect place to set keys and with space for more storage underneath.
 48" wide Console Table from Home Decorators Outlet - $95

What is your most essential item to keeping your entry organized?  Or do you have a favorite from above?  I wanna know!

I LOOOOVE the storage bench! So many possibilites for baskets filled to the brim with leashes, mittens, shoes and knick-knacks. Or, if you're us and have a cat, a place for her to hide :)

These are great ideas!! I actually own about five of those big flowered storage boxes from IKEA and I love them! I personally have the IKEA expedit storage unit near my front entry way for storing books as well as boxes for leashes, hats, etc...and I have a vintage dresser as my entryway table that I store my toddler's shoes in (so were not searching all over the house for them) and mail, etc. Keeping a trash can by the front door is a genius idea! Never thought of that! Thanks :)

I too would like a storage bench, but without a large entry, it isn't a possibility. Pooh! Oh well, I love the items you chose, great eye Jess!

Great ideas! We always fall victim to the ten pairs of shoes by the side door trap... I love that Ikea shoe cabinet!

I in addition to my buddies have already been reviewing the best tips from the blog then at once I got a
horrible feeling I never expressed respect to the site owner for
those techniques. Most of the young men happened to be so glad to learn them and already have very much been having fun with
them. I appreciate you for genuinely indeed accommodating and
then for making a choice on varieties of very good useful guides millions of
individuals are really desperate to learn about. Our own sincere regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.
