You see, now that we have colder weather I have sent all my kids to school properly equipped with warm footwear, mittens, hats, scarves and a suitable coat.
But, all this toasty warm and fairly expensive gear is now lying on my mud room floor. At least the stuff that's not molding in the lost and found at school is in there, I must admit I haven't done a complete inventory.
Which leads me to – hangers.
Okay, so kids? See that little picture at the top of this post? Don't be scared, that's a hanger.
Mittens go in your coat pockets, and then the sleeves of your coat need to go over the pointy ends of this hanger thing. You then need to take the top hooked part and place it over the rod in the mud room closet. This should take about oh, all of ten seconds.
Boots can also be placed in the bottom of the same closet on the boot mats.
Hangers and boot mats are our friends. Please start using them.
I appreciate your attention.
