  1. HANG COOKING UTENSILS INSIDE THE CABINET.

 

I absolutely hated digging through my utensil drawer to find the spatula that I needed for cooking.

 

Now everything is hanging inside the cabinet on a small command hook. Visible and easy to grab. The little command hooks that hold up to half a pound work fine for light spatulas.

 

 

  1. HANG BACKPACKS BEHIND THE DOOR.

 

It’s much easier to teach kids to put their stuff away when it has a designated spot. My kids love coming home and hanging their backpacks on their own little hooks.

 

Good training, and it keeps the clutter up off the floor too!

BONUS TIP!

 

Instead of a traditional hook, command Velcro strips are great for moms who are trying to make their child’s room darker to help with sleep.

 

Even with blackout curtains, light somehow finds a way to peek through!

 

If you attach one command Velcro strip to the wall, and one to the curtain with a thin strip of duct tape underneath (to make sure it keeps sticking to the fabric), you can still open/close the curtains as needed but also keep the room DARK for naps and early mornings!
