Hat and glove organization

Now that winter is upon us,I thought I would share this trick I learned from my sister-in-law. We used to have a basket of gloves and hats in the coat closet. And of course, it would get dumped out and then abandoned every time a child looked for a matching set of gloves.

So, this is perfect solution. It's an over-the-door shoe hanger. And each compartment can hold a pair of gloves, a hat, scarf etc. Now if only the munchkins would put their gloves back without being asked.


  1. I have had one on our closet door for at least 3 years and I love it!!!! I take it off in the summer and hang it on the back of the laundry room door or roll it up and put it in the winter clothing box. Its a great idea!

  2. Glad I could make your life a little easier. Ikeep the bottom pocket for the lost mates. If the kids can't find a piar of gloves they can wear a miss match. This idea works great on the pantry door to keep all the seasoning packets in order. It also helps you know what is on hand before you head to the grocery store. I love the clear pouches.

  3. Thanks for this great idea. I have tried for years to come up with diferent ways to organize the winter stuff (6 kids worth)and NOTHING has ever worked!!! This is awesome. I can't wait to try it out. THANKS!!!
