It’s no surprise that the cold winter months are slowly creeping up on us. I’m not going to lie, I am probably one of the few that happens to love winter, what I don’t love about it however is the amount of gear that comes along with it. With three kids in the house and two grown ups the pile of winter gear accumulates quickly.
As most families probably do, we use to store our abundance of hats and mittens in a large basket by the door. This worked to keep everything contained for the most part, but sorting through it every morning to find everyone’s gear was a huge pain and often left half of the stuff thrown all over the floor. Not to mention at the end of the day when everyone would throw their wet mittens in the basket thinking they would be dry by morning.
This year I was determined to come up with a solution to storing all of our gear and making our morning time run smoothly and efficiently.
I think this system that I will be using this year is going to be perfect! Read below to find out how I repurposed an over the door shoe organizer into the best winter gear storage solution!
