Hangers: Who doesn't have a few unused hangers in their closet?? I use them to organize my pocketbooks, belts, scarves, bras and bathing suits. Sure you can make a pile of purses in your closet floor or stuff belts, scarves, bras and bathing suits in your dresser drawer (which I've tried before) but I can find what I need a lot faster since I started hanging all of those things up.

|I used scrapbook stickers to put each child's initial on their hook|
|I just cleaned Archer's organizer out so it's got some pockets ready for this fall/winter season's stuff|
I also used the plastic bins when I was organizing our school stuff. I realized they needed more than just a hook to hang their backpack and coat on, so I got each child a bin to keep under their hook. They throw things in there that they will need for school the next day (like shoes, socks, lunchbox, show and tell, library book, etc).
Self Stick Tiles: Great to use on wire shelving. It creates a space for things you wouldn't otherwise be able to put on that type of shelf. I used them on the top shelf in my pantry to store my cookbooks on, in the art closet to put coloring/activity books on, and even in my closet so my folded clothes wouldn't end up with those darn wire marks on them.

I'm always looking for new and creative ideas so please share how you keep your home or car organized!!
