What ideas do you have for storing hats and gloves ?

  • Hat boxes if you can find them. I have over 75 (at last count), and if possible, I have more than one hat in each box. Reasonably priced hat boxes are hard to find, I used to pick them up at Nordstrom Rack, but no more. Home Goods has them occasionally, but generally in smaller sizes. The rest are in 13 gallon trash bags on shelves in my closet. I have a small bin on a shelf in my closet for gloves and mittens. Dress gloves are kept rolled in acid free paper in a lingerie drawer.

    when we had a small kitchen opened up some years ago, we had an old kitchen cabinet thing retrofitted to a "peninsula" with three drawers and one vertical sectioned drawer. The regular drawers we use for: top, dishtowels. Next; my gloves, knit hats for winter, bottom; husbands, gloves, knit hats for winter. Works very well for us as it is near back door. The answer lies in how many people's things you must accommodate, the space you have and what you like. If you post a pic of where you want such storage to be it will be easier to answer specifically for you.

    I use wicker baskets. In the winter months I leave them out by the door, in the months when they are not used, I put the various things in plastic bags after cleaning them and store then in the baskets to wait for the next season. Anything wet is left out to dry on towels, or put in the dryer before going back into the basket.

    Start with a tote for gloves and hats, and put each one in a zip lock, but don't close it

    I'd hang them on a hanger with clothespins until dry then drop them in a basket.

    I got stacking baskets (the kind you see for produce) and put them on the closet shelves. I store all the gloves, scarves, etc., that we're not using or off-season in plastic shoe boxes, stacked in the closet.

    A friend painted a nice old wooden dresser and turned it into a decorative asset in her entry hallway, with the drawers used for gloves, hats, scarves and a basket for keys, sunglasses, etc.

    i use the over the door shoe pockets. Clear plastic makes itveasy to find what I am looking for. Each person gets a row of pockets.

    I use a hanging 6 shelf organizer. Each family member can have their own shelf or you can use one shelf for hats, one for scarves, one for mitts or gloves etc. https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/neatfreak-6-shelf-closet-organizer/6000196129342
