I cannot take credit for this awesome Organizational Tip.? My mom was the one who shared this with me a couple years ago.? She is my mentor and also an organizational genius!
I have always dreaded Winter with small children.? It is so difficult having to bundle them up with coats, hats, scarves, and mittens.? And then once you get to your destination the kids take them off and they get thrown somewhere and many times lost – never to be found again (especially the gloves). I kinda wish they made them on strings like how they do for babies.
Anyway, once we get home after an outing, the hats, gloves and scarves get thrown all over the place.?? I used to have a big basket that I would put everything in.? But eventually when it was time to go out again, there would always be a glove missing.? I would go crazy trying to find it and then finally give up and let the kids go out without any gloves at all.? (I know…bad mommy I am…)
So, when my mom shared this idea with me, I was thrilled!
Has anyone ever seen these plastic chains with clips on them that you can get from the Dollar Store?
Well this was my answer to keeping our winter gloves organized in their matching pairs!? Here is a picture of our gloves hanging in our entryway.? I have three separate chains hanging on hooks that are attached to a mirror I have hanging on my wall.
As you can see each pair of gloves has its own clip.? When we come in the house I get the gloves hung up right away so they are always neat and organized.
What do you think of this idea?? I love it!!
