Designate a space for coats and bags

If you live in a small space, you likely don't have a huge coat closet to house guests' jackets and purses. However, there are ways to maximize your available space and safely stow items out of the way of your gathering.
Using a wire basket to hold purses lets you easily see where in the pile a departing guest's item is. If you are using your bedroom as a temporary storage area, make sure the bed cover is clean so friends and family don't leave with animal fur or dust on their coats.
