Today’s the day we try on winter coats and boots to see what we need for the new season. Children grow so fast! We grow out of mittens and snowsuits in just one year.
I’m sitting in a big pile of scarves, hats, and mittens, and I’m wondering what to do with them all. Normally, we just unload everything into a big basket by the door, but each morning becomes a frantic search for matching gloves.
I remember the Wise Big Sister who organizes winter things in hanging shoe racks. I just happen to have one, so I sort everything into the neat little slots. Why have I waited 13 years to do this?
Anyway, in case you hadn’t thought of this already, hanging shoe racks make the best organizers for winter hats, mittens, and scarves.
And I love learning to improvise and make uncommon uses for ordinary objects.
