One of my favorite organizing tools is hooks. Big and small…I like them all. One of the reasons I like hooks so much is because they are easy for everyone to use. I have four kids in my home and I have found that hooks work great for them. Putting coats on hangers is way to hard and putting towels on towel bars just doesn’t happen…so hooks it is. Now just a quick side note, don’t mistake my recommending hooks for also recommending pegs. I prefer hooks because things tend to fall off of pegs.
Some items you can use hooks for:
I could go on and on. One of my favorite type of hooks is the Command Hooks by 3M. They have a large variety of sizes, colors and shapes. They also have some with stronger strengths for heavier items. You can also remove them when they are no longer needed. I recently needed to replace a towel bar during our bathroom update and purchased some large “brushed nickel” Command Hooks (see picture). I was not real sure it could hold the towel… the hook is rated for 5 lbs but the towel is a large bath sheet and I know the towel gets pretty heavy when it is wet. I am happy to report that it is holding strong. As you can see in the other picture, I also use the tiny clear hooks to hold my necklaces. My girls have the same hooks holding their necklaces in their rooms. The hooks keep the necklaces organized and tangle free.
Do you use a lot of hooks in your home? They can be a great organizing tool.
BTW-I was at Menards on 120th and Dodge here in Omaha the other day and they have a huge display of the command hooks near the checkout. Needless to say I was very excited because I had never seen such a variety! Check it out!
