Over the door shoe organizer. Gloves, hats and scarves are great for keeping you warm, but they can make a mess in your closet or hallway. Here are a few ideas that will keep your gear at the ready and out of your way.
- Use the compartments for hats, gloves, earmuffs, and rolled up scarves. Find one made of clear plastic so that you can see what items are in each compartment. You can even assign a row to each family member so that everyone knows exactly where his or her items are. Or, if you live alone, dedicate each row to a different winter accessory.
- Clear plastic bins or baskets
Plastic bins are great for inside hall closets. If you don’t have a closet, decorative baskets can sit on the ground or under a bench. They’re a great way to have everything accessible yet contained. You can organize them by family member or by items (one for hats, one for gloves, one for scarves).
- Hangers and chip clips
This is a clever way to keep scarves off the floor and organized…just put a few chip clips (or clothes pins or even those black office clips) on a hanger and use each clip to hang a scarf. You can also use plastic shower curtain rings that you simply thread your scarves through. Keeping your scarves like this, you can color code them and never have to dig to find the right scarf for your day!
We hope these winter clothes storage ideas free up some of your space and get your winter gear in its place!
