This tip has come in from 4 readers. So thank you to Valerie, Staci, Heather, and Jenni. I have seen this a ton of places since the tips came in. I just had to try it and I love it. Now I am sharing with you, just in case you don’t already do it.
I bought an inexpensive over-the-door shoe organizer (about $7 at Walmart). Instead of putting shoes in it, we put our winter hats, gloves, and mittens. Now instead of going through a pile of stuff and having clutter around, we have it all nice and neat. You can see my front door, our coats hanging on hooks, and the shoe organizer with all of our junk in it. We are just a family of four, but I do have extras because I know we will lose something and all the stores will have in stock will be swimsuits.
When we get ready to leave, I tell the kids to grab their hats and gloves. Works great for my son. My daughter thinks she is just another version of my son, so she grabs his things. Well at least all of the items are off of my floor and organized. Try it.
