Winter "stuff"

Winter has hit and being the mom of two toddlers I know how difficult it can be to keep track of everybody's winter "stuff". Hats, gloves, scarves always seem to be missing in those crucial minutes before we have to head out the door in the morning. My solution is simple: have lots of extras. Dollarama's selection of winter hats, gloves and scarves has greatly improved over the years. I went and loaded up on all different hats and mittens for my kids so that I would always have some when I needed even if something got lost outside or is hiding under the couch. One piece that I particularly liked for toddlers was a neckwarmer shaped like a turtleneck. It's got a turtleneck and two pieces of material for the front and the back. I like it because it stays on, no risk of strangulation and it also covers some of their back and chest.

  1. Excellent tip!! I haven't found my toddlers gloves in a week now, must get out of the house!! Where we live we have family help center and they have a used clothing section that is much cheaper even than dollarama.. I don't know if you have something like that close to you. I usually stock up on wool socks, hadn't thought of hatsnmittens!!
