Organizing Loves

I already professed my love for my label maker. There are, however, a few other things that make my little organizer heart beat a little faster. The one I'm thinking about today is hooks. Oh, how I love hooks. I love that little hands can use them, thus eliminating one more thing I have to do. I love that it is so much faster to put something on a hook, than on a hanger. I love that they are so function, yet still pretty attractive. I have them pretty much everywhere - in every room.

Here's a couple from my home. In the entryway, we have a coat closet around the corner and no one used these, so I hung up some baskets and stuck some silk hydrangeas in them (for now):



In the coat closet to hang church bags:




In the kids room to hang up their clothes for the next day (G's my hand model and went around pointing all the hooks for me):

An over the door hook in the kids bathroom to drape their towels. They can't reach it, so I'm planning on putting some their level:In the toy room:I even have them in my shower! In the summer, we hang our swimsuits up on them after we've rinsed them. So, are you convinced? This is just a portion. G's over my shoulder asking me why I didn't put pictures of all the others! What do you use hooks for?

I LOVE hooks. I have a favorite hook board hung around the corner from our entry at kid level for their coats and backpacks.

How ironic you posted this. I've been searching for new ways to organize as we prepare to live in a smaller space. I know that is going to require me to keep things organized and use all of our space wisely. I've been thinking about using hooks for our coats as we walk in, putting and over the door shoe rack in the entry closet to put our shoes in as we walk in the door, using them in the kids room to hang book bags, and pretty much over every door and cabinet. In the pantry for a spice rack, under the sink for paper towels and cleaners, in the bathroom for toiletries.
That's way more than you asked for or wanted to know about, huh? lol

I just put some hooks in the kids' bathroom for their towels and I LOVE it. It's so easy. We also have some going down the stairs to our basement where we put the diaper back and other bags. I like the closet idea too, thanks!

You know, I've been wondering what to do about bath towels in the kids' bathrooms, as there's not enough room for multiple towel bars - hooks might be my answer! I love them, but just never know where to put them...

I like hooks too. Our master bedroom and closet are TINY, so we have hooks behind the door of the bedroom to hang stuff we use regularly.

Where did you get the silk hydrangeas? I'm in the market for some nice fake flowers.

We need more hooks around our home. There are several spaces that hooks would be perfect!

I love hooks too! I need to get some for our entryway ASAP!

Kasey said...

Hooks are great aren't they! However I'm a firm believer that anything that helps me make my house more organized and less crazy feeling is a good thing! For instance: Decorative Baskets- I mean they are stylish and still hold a load of stuff! You can't beat it!

I want to know more about you...so, I tagged you.

We have a timeout hook, where we hang the kids by the back of their pants when they're bad. JUST KIDDING. (Although I'm thinking that nobody would be misbehaving if we did.)

I have them in our son's bathroom too and now I want them everywhere instead of the towel rings! So much easier!!

Shannon said...

I love hooks too! Yours are all getting good use. :)

Well you should have linked this on Hooked on Fridays! Get it?!! I think I might love hooks as much as you and maybe I'll do a hook tour also sometime soon!

Jaime said...

We have 5 large hooks right where we enter the back door...we hang bags, coats, umbrellas, you name it~ on them. I LOVE those hooks!

Jenni said...

My hubby laughs that I've put hooks on the back of every possible door - they are just so handy! All your hooks are awesome!:)

Amber said...

I hope I don't offend you when I make this little joke, but I just cannot resist:

You are such a hooker!!

:P

And I really want to see an up close of that first picture with the silk hydrangeas. My fave!!

Am also crazy for hooks! I use them to hang my jewelry on. Get antique ones on ebay for a great look.
