So if you come over to our house, this is what you would see when you walk in the front door...usually.
4 pairs of boots (a work pair and dress pair for both of us), at least 1 pair of flip flops and a rope for the dog since we are working with her on property boundaries.
Our entry way is also part of a short hallway that turns the corner into another part of our hallway. It can get crowded if they aren't nicely in a row.
I've almost broken my neck a few times in the dark.
