Hi everybody! We're in a new house, and I'm trying to figure out where everything should go, but I'm stuck on backpacks. We have hooks on the wall behind the front door, but it is a bit too tight for backpacks and daily bags. We also have a hall closet, but right now the floor has a shoe rack with shoes on it and boots, also it isn't a very big closet.
Info about what I'm looking to find a place for. DD1 is in K and she has a kids-sized backpack to hold her school folder and lunchbox. DD2 goes to daycare, and she has a bag that goes to and from daycare with diapers and spare clothes in it. I am a teacher, so I bring a school bag and purse to work each day. DH has a work bag, but he manages to find a hiding place for it each night if he needs to store it. He also has a school backpack that he uses once a week and keeps in the hall closet.
My concern is that they get put on kitchen counters and the dining room table and get moved around as we use those areas as the evening progresses.
I'm looking to hear where you guys keep stuff and if you have any suggestions that I can use.
