. . .Mudroom
Since the girls use the mudroom to get ready for school, Real Simple transformed the area into a way station, turning a bookcase on its side, then sliding labeled boxes onto the shelves. Each daughter has her own column of storage, and the fourth column contains miscellaneous items. Lockers roll out for easy access to the girls’ shoes. Cubbies on the desk double as the girls’ in-boxes, into which Mom can tuck important notes.
