So, how do you find an out of the way place to dry your winter gear but also to organize it so it is handy when dashing out the door?
Grab a curtain rod and some curtain rings with clips!
If your family is like mine, winter comes and I am suddenly stuck with a pile of gloves, hats, and scarves that don't really have a home during the winter months. I've tried baskets, and any other number of ways to collect them.
The problem is they usually come into the house wet. So they need a place to dry out, so throwing all the wet gear into a basket isn't wise!

    The world is your oyster! I'm going to hang large cooking utensils on a rod, above my stove! Wonderful idea! Thank you.

    I have hung a curtain rod and used the rings with clips for drying my hats and gloves after shoveling the snow. It works wonders.
