The best way to organize such winter accessories as gloves, mittens, hats, and scarves is to look for unused space in your entryway. Here are a few ideas:
- Drawers. If space permits, a dresser in the entryway or mudroom is a perfect place for winter accessories. Alternatively, stackable plastic drawers can be placed inside the coat closet under shorter coats. Drawers can be labeled, one for each family member.
- Sweater shelves. If you have about a foot of space to spare on your closet rod, hang a six-compartment mesh or canvas shelf and assign one or two compartments to each person for winter accessories, saving the lower compartments for kids.
- Baskets. Assign one per family member and store the baskets on the shelf above the rod in the closet for adults, or under a storage bench or on the floor for kids.
