When our children were little, we lived in an old house with no coat closet and very little storage. I found a neat way to store our gloves and hats by using a shoe holder on the back of the basement door.
A few weeks ago, I decided to do something about it to get ready for winter. After looking in three different local stores, I finally found a shoe holder that wasn't plastic and could be seen through.
Our basement door is right next to the coat closet, so I cleared out all the piled up stuff at the entrance to our basement (all the stuff that should have been put away and never was :))
and hung a new shoe holder up just like we used to have.
Now it looks like this:
The little pull string light above it broke and still has to be replaced, but when it is fixed, it will be so easy to just take a look and find a PAIR of gloves or mittens!
Here's what the closet looks like now:
After I took this picture I added a lint roller to one of the pockets since I can never find it when I need it. The rest of the pockets will fill up as I find misplaced gloves all around the house.
We have them tucked here and there, but soon they will all be in one place.
Now I'm all ready to get decked out for the cold that's coming!
