In the front porch, there's two alcoves to either side of the door. When you come in bags, shoes and coats go there. DS on one side, ours on the other. DS has a check list there of everything he needs to have ready for school the next morning, so if it's not on the list he can't dump it there. You're only allowed one pair of shoes by the door, all else goes in the bottom of the wardrobe.

We also added to the list by putting reminders for washing and teeth brushing before he leaves the house.

Sorry posted too soon. We avoid storage now as it ends up being used for everything it shouldn't. It's just shoes with bag placed on top of them and coat hung up by them. It looks tidy as long as nothing else goes there.
