During visits, stash outerwear in a bag so you won't lose bits of it when it's time to leave
Such a simple, smart way to deal with the on-again-off-again winter paraphernalia. From Sara:
Just another reusable shopping bag trick. I've been bringing an empty bag into places like the library or a friend's house. When I unwrap us from all our outerwear gear, I shove it in the bag. No more lost mittens, hats, etc.
