Back to School Doesn't Have To Mean Back to Clutter

Garage Drop Zone

When was the last time you and your kids entered your home through its front door? If you’re like most people, you probably come and go through your garage, right? On days when the weather isn’t so great, that can mean mud, rain and snow being tracked into your house by wet boots and dirty shoes. And now, with back-to-school season upon us, there’s also the matter of backpacks, coats and sports gear cluttering up your home. Hanging them inside, where they take up space and can drip all over your floor isn’t exactly ideal.

So, what can you do if you don’t want to spend a ton of money building a mudroom to act as the entryway between outside and inside?

The answer is a drop zone, of course — a place in the garage, right by the door into the home, where you can “drop” bookbags, boots, raincoats and other items that don’t you don’t want in the home but need to be kept within easy reach!

The Hello Garage Drop Zone

Back to school garage clutter

You can see that a drop zone just makes good sense. In fact, when we were first designing our cabinet system, we insisted on developing the Hello Garage Drop Zone at the same time.

That’s because it’s built from the same commercial-grade powder-coated steel as our cabinets and shelves, which means it’s more than strong enough to sit on as you put on or take off those slushy snow boots. Plus, after you’ve had it a while, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it — even when the school year ends and summertime activities start happening!

Long story short: With a built-in bench, hooks and shelving, the Hello Garage Drop Zone is the perfect way to store backpacks, coats, sports gear and more!
