    Default Show Me Your School Bag Storage...

    I'm curious to see how everyone else keeps their school bag areas neat and tidy. I googled and found those "nooks" but I'm pretty sure they will just look cluttered in my house so I'm keen to see something a bit different.


    This is my bags and shoe storage area (excuse the chainsaw, it's generally not there)

    And this is where that area is. That door in my front door, that's actually on the side of my house. So as you can see, we don't have an entryway of any kind really

    Could you fit a slim tall bookcase in that corner, giving each child a shelf?

    How wide is it? Will it fit an IKEA Kallax? One that is 2 cubes wide (can have 4 or more cubes then). That way the kids have a cube each? You can even get baskets or the doors that can be screwed on to the Kallax so it hides the bags when not in use.

    Having the doors on it might be an idea. We had one of the 2 square by 4 square ones there but it just looked so cluttered and messy. A little 4 square one with doors might work though. Thank you

    I used to have an open shelf and it worked ok but always looked messy. I keep a magazine file box with things like school banking etc that you just need once a week. It wasn't a bookshelf as such as it was deeper and higher gaps - each shelf could fit approx a 30l tub.

    I now have a kitchen with heaps of cupboards, so one door opening (2 shelves). It is awesome having it all tucked away and in the kitchen works great as I can keep the lunchboxes in there rather than out on the bench ready.

    Swimming/sports bags go on a "hat rack" style wall hook thing in the laundry.

    This is behind our front door but can't be seen anyway as we have a small entryway.
