1. A Landing Strip

The idea of creating a "landing strip" at your front door isn't a new concept. In fact, I have heard this tip so many times I roll my eyes when I read about it in a new organizing book because it is literally in every single one (including this one, cue eye-rolling as I write). Do you know why every single Professional organizer mentions a landing strip in every single book he or she writes? Because it really is a must-have for every home. To truly have a functional landing strip, you need a hook or container for your keys and other designated places for all the things you set down when you first walk through the door. The top of your kitchen island or tossed onto your table is not a proper landing spot.
