I have a trick for how to store kids’ gloves and hats (and their backups) — and I found it by accident. We had one of these shoe organizers hanging in our hall closet and it wasn’t getting a ton of use for shoes. One day, I cleaned it out and vowed to only put the shoes we had worn recently there — and after a few days found that instead I was sticking all of my son’s little hats, gloves, and other things there instead since there was no great place to put them and they were always underfoot and right by the door. I’ve since made it official: I got out my label maker and labeled each “column” with our names, and because they’re clear you can see the contents pretty easily. I stick: winter hats, gloves, sunglasses, lip balm, sunscreen, extra mitten clips, and all those other little things you always need right before you run out the door. This pictured shoe organizer is $8.99, eligible for Prime, at Amazon. Whitmor Crystal Clear Over The Door Shoe Organizer
