Helping Hands

Last spring I bought this handy octopus from Ikea with the intention that it would hold the kids' snow hats and snow gloves nicely for them to dry.  I have a sink in my laundry room which is the room right inside the back door.  The octopus fits nicely on the upper cabinet door handle allowing all the wet gloves and hats to drip into the sink and not all over the floor - yippeee!

There are two clips for each of the eight arms of the octopus, so there is plenty of room for all of the kids to hang their hat and gloves.

And the clips are easy to open so I don't have to help, they can do it themselves when they come in from playing.

Yes I know that all those gloves and hats over my sink make it hard for me to actually use the sink while doing laundry.  But I'm willing to sacrifice because now I don't have all those gloves and hats on the floor or hither thither and yon.  They're dripping right into the sink and that makes me happy.

Thank you Mr. Octopus!
