Organizing Winter Gear – This Year I will Win!

Dear scratchy wool hats, keep-warm hats and “cute” hats, mismatched gloves, baby hats, toddler hats, mittens, gloves, outdoor gloves, “just-for-looks” gloves, Even Steven’s 20-gazillion winter scarf-collection and a random faux-fur hat…

This year – I am going to win!

No more mornings spent digging for winter hats, gloves, and scarves! This simple trick for organizing winter gear will save you from the frustration.

Organizing Winter Gear

No more mornings spent digging for winter hats, gloves, and scarves! This simple trick for organizing winter gear will save you from the frustration.

I will not spend my mornings (or my afternoons or my evenings) looking for hats, mittens or gloves. I will not spend my days finding winter gear strewn around the house. I will not waste a single second trying to find the exact scarf that Even Steven wants to wear.

  1. I think it's a great idea, anyway! Don't know if anything will truly help you win. 🙂 I have 3 kiddos also–5, 3, and 2. I may just try it!

  2. Yes you will! I have used this method for a while now-I found it in a "real simple" mag years ago and it WORKS.
    I also use a shoe holder on the back of all my closets that have doors that open ( I have some closets with sliders…not good for storage ).
    Enjoy your winter this year 🙂

  3. Erm…good luck with that!

    How about using bull dog clips or pegs on gloves to keep them together? I envisage a lot of gloves being thrown about to find two the same.

  4. I love this idea! I just have almost no place to put it, though, maybe I could put it on the back of our garage door. I'll have to see if my dh likes the idea.

    Winter gear is so crazy to keep track of. I have 5 kiddoes, and right now I use baskets. But…things have disappeared from time to time.

  5. I did this with my medicine cabinet and it works GREAT. I am kid free so I dont' have to worry about the whole "poisen" thing and hang it on the back of my bathroom door. However, the hanging medicine cabinet may still work if you had a closet you kept locked or the like.

  6. I'm weighing in to testify that I did this last winter and it works! My little grands who come almost daily are trained to put their gloves, hats and shoes in their pockets. It really has been so successful that their moms have hung the keepers inside their closet doors too. Mine hangs inside my mud-room coat closet and it's great. Cheerio friends!

  7. Genius!! My dh was just asking (complaining) if there wasn’t something we could do about the mess of snow clothes that explodes every time we open the coat closet. With 8 of us, we have a lot of hats and gloves. This will definitely help. Now can someone come up with a great idea for snow pants?

  8. Holy crud! This is BRILLIANT!! I have three kids, and a laundry basket overflowing with misc. gloves, mittens, hats, scarves…it’s such an eyesore AND a PITA. I have to dump the entire thing and pick through to find what matches and what is the right size. Where we currently live has mild winters, but this STILL would help me organize winter gear and get it out of the way. Yes! I shared this on my crafty facebook page AND on my Tips pinterest board. Good stuff!

  9. I used a similar idea for organizing my childrens’ outfits. I purchased an “accessory holder” which has eight, larger pockets on two sides. I put together outfits in each pouch so the kids can just point to the one they want to wear. Since there are eight pockets, there are always two to choose from. It works great!

  10. there are only the 2 of us … and one of us (me) is a hat-glove-scarf “collector”. this idea is the answer to a ever-expanding, exponentially messy, and well-loved fixation. thank you
