With the frequent storms and winds bringing rain and leaving us with colder weather, less daylight everyday, and crisper air and changing leaves, we really can't ignore it anymore.
Fall is upon our doorstep.
It's time to break out the warmer clothes - boots and sweaters and scarves, lug out the fall and Halloween decor and put away the more summer-inspired pieces, and grab some hot apple cider and warm blankets to bundle up in.
While Fall usually involves all of the above in the Magruder household once the air turns crisp and cool, we also begin to incorporate more practical changes to get ready for the upcoming chilly months.
Now that we've gotten rid of most of the
And cold weather + car in the garage = entering the house via the garage door with large coats (that may or may not involve snow clinge-age).
AKA, we needed a coat solution.
I found this little guy for around $9 on clearance at Target awhile back.
I think it's actually a towel rack, but the small hooks are perfect for hanging up a coat or gloves once you enter the house. And they're small enough that they don't hit the door when the door is open, so hey - it works for us.
And the best part?
They're hinged and fold closed when not-in-use, which will be perfect for those summer months when we don't need them and don't want to have them in the way in this small space. It reminds me of those hooks from Ikea that fold closed as well - except, well, this one's way better for us, mostly because there isn't an Ikea anywhere within about 1,000 miles of us.
Yes, I know - that fact makes me very sad.
Anyways, we love our new hooks because they fit our needs and space - and hello - they were on clearance! You can't beat that.
Although this was a small update to our little home, we think that every little bit makes a big difference - especially when it helps our household to function more thoroughly and efficiently throughout the year. This isn't the only update we have up our sleeves to prep our casa for winter, so stay tuned for those!
So what do you think? Do you have any updates planned to prep your own home for this winter? Anything you do regularly or anything you think is overrated? Are you as excited to see Fall again as we are?
