Oh I'm so jealous of some of your solutions! I was just getting out the winter gear a few days ago during the cold spell (and then it hit 95 today?!) and was dreading the winter STUFF season just from looking at all of it. We don't have a coat closet really. There's only one small closet on the whole first floor and to get to it you have to walk from the front door, across the living room carpet, and through the kitchen plus it houses kitchen stuff too. So it's useless. Right now we have a coat rack at the bottom of the stairs (near the front door), but there's nowhere to put everything else. I think we used a plastic grocery bag hung on that coat rack last year and cardboard on the floor for the boots. It definitely wasn't the most glamorous situation.
Ooops, sorry, that wasn't much help, but I'm
:ing to see what other people have done. Anyone with small spaces and no real entryway/foyer?
