New homes for $10

A key element of being organized is having homes for your things.
Giving items a specific location makes finding and returning them easy.
One of my favorite and most versatile organizing products is a clear, over the door shoe organizer.

Because it hangs on the back of a door it takes advantage of unused vertical space.
Being clear means you can easily see what’s in each pocket.
They are easy to install.

And the possible locations and uses are endless.  Or pretty close.
For example: On the pantry door to hold snacks at kid level, packet and envelopes that often get lost on shelves, small cans or jars, plastic cutlery, bags of chocolate chips, cupcake liners, you get the idea.

The coat closet door to hold mittens and gloves, hats and scarves, sunglasses and sunscreen, the dog leash, and dog toys. 

The office door to hold extra pens and pencils,toner cartridges for the printer, boxes of staples, paste and glue, gift wrapping supplies (cut out the bottom out of one section and slide wrapping paper rolls through it),and other assorted items from the desk drawers.

The bathroom door with the option of assigning each person their own row, or for general back up storage of soaps, toothpaste, cosmetics. All those items that get lost in the vanity drawers or under the sink.

On the kid’s room door to hold action figures, dolls, cars, packets of game cards,art supplies, maybe even socks or shoes.

The door leading in from the garage to hold frequently used small tools, the tape measure, and cleaning supplies.

So many doors, so many possibilities.

Take advantage of unused vertical space.
Store things where you use and need them.
Keep things visible when possible so that everyone can see where things belong. 
Make it easy to get things out, and easy to put them away!
