We’ve probably all been there. Excited kids on every hand, freshly fallen snow outside, and suddenly you find yourself lost in a bin full of mittens, gloves, scarves, hats– all sizes, shapes and colors, and no matches in sight. Arghh! Just get these kids outside to play already!
I decided this would finally be the winter to conquer the winter gear problem, once and for all (if such a thing were possible). (Spoiler– looks like it might be possible!)
This idea is not unique to me. It’s all over Pinterest, if you search for ideas on how to organize winter accessories. I’m here to tell you that, unlike some Pinterest ideas, this one WORKS, and you don’t even have to put the rest of your life on hold in order to get it accomplished.
I got two over the door shoe hangers, and hung them in separate places. One is the for kids’ stuff, and one is for grown-ups’ stuff.
The shoe hangers need to have clear pockets so you can see what is inside. They can be hung on a wall; doesn’t have to be a door. Then you can organize everything to your heart’s content and feel so pleased with yourself.
You get the picture! Simple concept… but we’ve saved time (and sanity) already, and it’s only late November! ♥
