Winter Gear Storage

I needed a system to organize my winter gear.  We have our coats hanging in the laundry room entry way but our hats, gloves, scarves … they were a mess!  Here is an easy and inexpensive way I have come up with to store our winter gear.

I bought 4 garbage cans from Dollar Tree (one for each family member).

I added chalkboard labels to each trashcan.  Any label would work, I just liked these and I found them at Dollar Tree as well.

I put each person’s name on the label.

I placed each individuals hats, gloves/mittens, scarves, etc in their bin.

I placed Command Hooks on the wall above our coat hanging rack and above each person’s coat.  I used Command hooks as I wasn’t sure this system was going to work so I wanted to start with something temporary.

I hung each basket up on the hooks above their jackets.  I was a little worried that they would fall off but they don’t, they stay on quite nicely.

Here we are a year later and I’m still using them, the command hooks have been great so I haven’t changed them.
