At the front door, I have a buffet with three drawers, and a cupboard with two shelves on either side. It is the key to organisation in my house! Shall we have a look what’s inside?
This drawer holds: church collection envelopes, my name tag, a small folding fan. In winter it also holds gloves and delicate scarves. It holds my ‘keep cup‘ (best business model ever – I don’t know anyone who works for a big company who hasn’t been ‘gifted’ one!). A few pens. My journal/notebook, some little post it notes. I stash out of circulation keys too (like work car keys on weekends, or my shared car’s keys when it’s at it’s other home).
This is where I keep all my socks and hosiery – right opposite the shoes. It just seemed sensible and I haven’t yet thought of a reason why I wouldn’t want my socks here!
In an apartment, sometimes there is no ‘back shed’ or ‘basement’. And I like to have things on hand for a quick fix etc. So I store close to all my hardware needs in this one drawer. Only some grouting and caulking tools live in my car space tool box.
