Where does everyone drop their crap in your house?

Everyone drops their stuff on my front entryway table including me but it still drives me crazy to look at it. Purses, diaper bags, backpack, mail.

  • We have what I call a "knee wall", a divider between the living room and the stairs to get downstairs....husband's wallet, change, mail, purse, bills, junk....makes me nuts because it's the first thing you see if company comes throught the front door. When that "wall" is clear, the room looks so much cleaner.

  • My kitchen counters, then when I tell them to move their junk, on my bar in the dining room. I'll let it go a day, two warnings, then I take care of it myself (I hide it). It's cut down some, but it makes me crazy to have junk lying around!!

  • Luckily, we just moved our washer/dryer to the basement, so we have a big closet/mudroom by the door when everyone comes in now! That is where everything goes, before that, everyt hing was set on our dining table, counter, and barstools.

  • Everything usually ends up in 1 of 2 rooms- the livingroom or the kitchen. Drives me nuts I wish people would pick up after themselves and put things away when finished with them instead of just leaving them sit.
