Idea #3: Designate a Drop Site

With three active boys, and the extracurricular gear that comes with them, the Cooks needed a place to keep clutter in check. Howard added a built-in cabinet off the garage entrance with hooks, nooks, and plenty of shelving to stow backpacks, hats, and shoes. "We drop everything there," says Jenny. "It's a lifesaver."

The custom built-in is painted Pale Gray from Ralph Lauren. The pillows are from Mrs. Howard.
