Winter turns to… summer???
Summer is almost here — but you wouldn’t know it by the rain and cold temperatures around here, and by our overflowing hat basket.
We keep a large wicker basket, complete with lid to hid its messy contents, near the front door.
It holds the hats, mittens, scarves, etc for the season.
But, the problem is, it is still jammed with winter gear and I can’t fit a summer hat in no matter how hard I cram. AND I am pretty sure there are many toques, mismatched mittens and more that could be retired before next fall.
So it is time to tackle! I want to sort out the contents, choose what winter gear I will keep for next year and store that in a drawer upstairs for the summer. Then I want to get out our summer gear and add it to the box so we can easily grab hats before we dash out into the sun, (or should I say the rain!)
Here is my BEFORE:
Can you believe ALL of that came out of one box??? I sorted and put the items in each of our bedroom closets.
Here is my AFTER:
I don’t have that much summer gear in there for the moment, so I added the baseball gloves. That may change as summer moves on.
All done! A small, but very necessary tackle!
