If you are anything like me, leaving the house is a three stage process. First get the kids out with their various school bags, PE bags, coats, scarves, hats, one glove each (because they’ve lost the other one). Now you have few things to clear. Second get you out with all your random bits and pieces – work bag, coat, hat, scarf, glove (see above), car keys, house, keys, bin bag that just needs running out, recycling that’s been on the worktop for two days, and the post for the house next door that you got by accident. Finally, the third stage is once you are in the car and the boot has been loaded, the bins put out, and the kids strapped in. Then you can go back in the house for the bits you/the kids forgot – the items that are only triggered by the starting of the car engine or pulling out of your road.
Alternatively, you could buy these hooks with pegs on. They help you leave next to your coat, the permission slips, tickets, and bits of paper you need.
Hooks with handy pegs These quality plywood coat hooks incorporate upturned pegs that are ideal for holding anything you may need to remember when arriving or leaving the house; notes or reminders, that letter to post, your tickets and passport.
Each hook also contains magnets so you can stick them to your fridge creating a handy place to hang your tea towel and peg your shopping lists, recipes or the kids’ drawings. Set of three. Screws and wall plugs included. Design by John Caswell for THABTO Details: Pack of 3 hooks. Each peg contains 2 magnets. Each peg can comfortably hold up to 5kg weight. Material:
