There is nothing like a snow day to remind us that it is still winter! The main reason I get tired of winter is because the layers of clothes and outerwear take up too much space in the house. Also, winter brings on more laundry. Winter clothes and the layers add up to a bigger load of laundry so I find I do laundry more often in winter than in summer.
Living in NYC or any major city, you probably don’t have much space. We have a tiny entryway, not big enough for the type of storage I’d like for winter gear. And certainly no room for a coat closet. Enter the canvas bag system. I bought an attractive canvas bag to store all of our winter hats, gloves and scarves. I hang the bag on the staircase banister. When it’s safe to put the winter gear away, I stuff it in a plastic bag in the back of my armoire. Then the canvas bag becomes a beach bag! Repeat each winter and summer.
