Well today we are getting our first real taste of winter. It is cold, windy, and snowing. So that meant it was time to bring out the winter jackets, snow pants, boots, mitts, toques, and scarves. I have a big rubbermaid bin into which all the mitts, toques and scarves get thrown into. Today I dumped it out and sorted through all the stuff in there. I threw away anything that was worn and/or ragged as well as the mitts with no mates. The girls each have a small bin in the porch for their stuff, so into each of their bins went one set of mitts, a toque, and a scarf. The rest of the good stuff went back into the large bin for we will need many extras throughout the winter. I used some cardboard to divide the bin into three sections. One each for the mitts, toques and scarves. Hopefully that will keep it a little neater so that when we are looking for something we don't have search through the whole bin.
