Have you seen my declutter plan? If you haven’t you can find it here. The idea is that I tackle one thing every day for 15 minutes, and the first place on my list to start is the hallway. To receive a copy of my plan subscribe to my blog and it will be in the confirmation email. As I work through the plan I will be sharing ideas on how to organise each room after you have declutted and I will be sharing these on my newsletters.
By the way, my plan just covers things in my house that I need to sort out. Please feel free to amend and add anything else you have. The plan is just a guide to help get you started.
In the hallway I will be tackling shoes, coats, bags, keys and any other bits. I like to make sure everything has a place. If it has a home it won’t get lost. To give me inspiration I love a good old Pinterest board. Below is my Hallway Organising Ideas board. Feel free to check it out:
Currently in our hallway we store our keys on a hook:
Our coats are actually in the playroom just off the hallway.
Our shoes are stored in a little understairs cupboard. This was already here when we moved in and is fitted out with shelves.
It is dark and gloomy with loads of wasted space. My dream though is this:
These wonderful drawers are made and fitted by a company called Clever Storage. I am saving as we speak for one of these. These drawers would make such a difference for me, I mean the family!
And now to the bags. I use self adhesive hooks from Wilkinsons that are stuck to the wall just inside the kitchen to hang up the girls school bags. I have loved this. It is really surprising how just lifting something off the floor makes the space feel tidier.
I have also found that the stairs turn into a dumping ground. They are a magnet for everything that needs to go upstairs but never get taken. I found this leather basket in the Wilko sale last year and it sits on the stairs so during the day I put things in there that need taking upstairs. At the end of the day I take it upstairs and put everything away. It really does make difference.
And that’s it for the hallway. If you are joining in with the plan, good luck! Don’t forget to check out my post about the plan and subscribe to my blog to receive a copy of the declutter plan.

The next room after the hallway on the plan is the kitchen. If you after some inspiration then check out these posts:
