Here is the storm we had yesterday and another big one on the way Wednesday!
In a house with 5 adults, winter attire is everywhere. Here's where we store all the must haves…
Come on in for a few organizing tips.
The best tip for heavy winter coats is to invest in wooden coat hangers. Big heavy coats keep their shape better on wooden hangers. The flimsy plastic hangers droop and usually break under the weight.
Winter coats can be expensive, so a few extra dollars for the wooden hangers is well worth it.
Below the coats is the best place for all the hats, gloves, mittens and scarves. Easy access near the coats!
I put together one of those wire racks that you can customize to fit your space, but any shelving system or low bookcase will work.
Having a shelf to keep the boxes or containers separated helps when sliding the boxes out. If you have the boxes stacked up on each other, it can be a pain. Sliding an individual box out makes it so much easier for everyone.
Labeling all the boxes is the key organizing.
Separating them and labeling each box helps when you have adult sizes, children sizes and lots of different winter gear to store.
Women's hat all in one box, so you know just where things are.
This makes it really easy for my husband to find just what he needs!
We have lots of winters scarves too…lots
I know it's not winter everywhere in the world, but you can always take these tips and tricks to store any seasonal items in your home. Remember…labeling is the key to a sane house!!
