Winter weather brings a whole host of extra gear that needs to be stored in your home and garage – hats, gloves, snow boots, shovels, and more. If you’re struggling to keep all this stuff organized, we have some ideas for you.
Read on for five winter gear organization ideas that will make your life easier this season!
1. Make use of vertical space.
The floors of your home and garage are probably already cluttered with other items, but there’s always the potential to find more storage space by making use of walls and ceilings. Try installing wall hooks or shelves to hang up bulky coats, scarves, hats, and other items that are used during the winter months. This way they won’t take up valuable floor space while they’re not being used.
2. Add shelves and bins in the garage.
For those extra-bulky items like sleds or snowshoes that can’t be hung up on walls or ceilings, try adding some shelving or bins in the garage (or wherever else you need them). Shelves provide an easy way to store large items off the ground without taking up too much room. Bins can also come in handy for storing smaller items like gloves, hats, and scarves where they won’t get lost among bigger pieces of equipment.
3. Label everything!
When it comes to keeping track of multiple winter accessories at once (especially if you have multiple people living in the same house), labels are key. It’ll save you time when you’re looking for what you need, as well as help everyone know exactly where their things belong when they come inside from playing in the snow so everything stays neat and organized all season long!
4. Get creative with shoe storage solutions.
With all the extra winter footwear piling up at your door during cold weather months – slushy boots, insulated boots, rain boots – it can be hard to keep them from cluttering up entryways or mudrooms. Try using over-the-door racks or shoe cubbies to keep everything organized and out of sight until it’s needed again.
5. Hang a coat rack by the front door.
If everyone is coming in with wet coats after playing outside all day long – investing in a good coat rack will help contain messes before they start! Having an easy place to hang coats right near the door can help prevent water droplets from getting everywhere when kids come inside after playing in snow drifts all day long!
Winter weather brings a lot of gear that needs to be stored properly – hats, gloves, boots, and more – but with these five winter gear organization ideas, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming!
