Get your hallway in order
There’s going to be more coats. Way more coats. Plus boots, wellies, brollies, book bags, trailing scarves…
If last year saw layers of coats spilling off your pegs, now is the time to add to their numbers.
Shoe horn in more storage
A pile of trainers and discarded boots is never a welcome sight, so provide for the overflow before it starts.
Cater for pets
A dedicated basket of clean towels for your dog’s muddy paws is a good way to start the winter season.
Take gloves in hand
Gloves, hats and scarves benefit from a separate section in your hall storage, be it a drawer, basket or pigeonhole. Oh, and weed out or reunite any rogue single gloves or mismatched mittens. So annoying to root through when you’re in a rush.
