Declutter Your Entryway (i.e., Drop Zone)

It may not be bags on the floor. It might be your purse and keys on the table. The mail on the counter you just grabbed out of your mailbox. The laptop and books on your coffee table.

The task for today is to clean up your drop zone. Wherever you walk in and…drop.

  • Take bags to their proper location.
  • Unpack lunch boxes.
  • Go through papers.
  • Process mail.
  • Put shoes where they belong.

Then, think through what it might take to get an organized drop zone. Do you need hooks for bags? A shoe rack? An inbox for mail?

Create a timeframe to make it happen.


If you are super organized and don’t have a messy drop zone, then feel free to literally clean your entryway. Grab a rag and all-purpose spray and start scrubbing! Those doors, doorframes, and kickplates can get dirty in a hurry! 

Have fun!

Your assignment for today:

  • Continue working on Habit #3.
  • Declutter your entryway and clean your drop zone.
  • Keep working on your Rainbow calendar.
