A Clever Way to Store Coats When You Don't Have a Coat Closet

Whatever you do, don't pile them on the bed

Company’s due in, oh, five minutes and you totally forgot to come up with a plan for what to do with everyone’s bulky puffer coats. This trick from All in Good Taste, Kate Spade’s new coffee-table book, just saved your holiday party. You’re welcome.

What you need: A bunch of hangers and a shower with a shower curtain rod.

What you do: Head to the bathroom, pull the shower curtain back and place the hangers on the rod. As guests arrive, collect their coats and hang them up neatly in the tub.

But isn’t it gross to hang coats near a toilet? Kinda…but it’s also preferable to having a mess of black trenches on your bed (in our humble opinion.)
