A Tidy Tub of Summer

Whatever the season, head-out-the-door essentials tend to congregate right where clutter is already at its peak—in the entry. Design blogger Benita Larsson, who lives in Stockholm, had the notion to divvy up a galvanized tub into discrete compartments (using “walls” of foam core) for all the unfindables. In summer: sunscreen, goggles, and bug spray; in winter: mittens, gloves, and hats. Zippered nylon pouches offer grab-and-go convenience for different activities.

To buy: Galvanized washtub (18 by 9 inches), $15, mainstsupply.com. Nylon zipper bags, $12 to $16 for an assorted set of three, baggu.com.
