BECAUSE, of course I'm not spending money right now. This is really no big deal at all, BUT I have to say, it was something that needed to be done. We needed space for all 5 of us to put our coats, scarves, purse, gloves, backpacks, and shoes. We used to use our laundry room as a "drop off" place but there honestly wasn't enough room. So now we have made a few little drop off areas (one in the entryway, and one in a near by closet) to serve the purpose, and I have to say, its working well AND I really needed to clean that closet!
