Raincoat Storage: Dog Style

We’ve had one of the wettest summers I can remember. Luckily for me, I don’t have to spend time outside while it’s raining. My dogs, however, still have to go outside no matter the weather. Poor little things.

After the millionth trip across the house to retrieve their rain jackets, I realized there had to be a better solution. My dogs go outside through the door in the office, so it finally dawned on me to store their rain jackets by the door. After all, we store our rain jackets by the door; why shouldn’t they? Yes, it only took me eight months to figure this out. I’m a genius. I know.

This was pretty much the easiest DIY ever, as all I had to do was sew a bit of ribbon inside the girls’ raincoats and add a hook to the side of the bookcase to hang them on.

And that’s it! Now, I all I have to do is reach for the dogs’ raincoats right before they go outside. When the weather is colder, I can exchange their raincoats for their winter gear. (Yes, my dogs have winter gear. Nothing is more pitiful than a shivering chihuahua.)

What simple solutions have been staring you in the face? I can’t believe it took me eight months to figure this one out. Better late than never, right?
