Whenever I want to hang something on the wall or in a cabinet, I get “oh no.” from my dear husband. He has an aversion to any holes in the walls. So, after 20 years together, I have figured out a way to still hang my stuff and not damage the walls and cabinets. I use 3M(c) Command(TM) hooks. They remove easily and 99% of the time leave no mark or hole on the wall or cabinet.
Here are just some of the areas I used these hooks.
I used the hooks inside kitchen cabinets to hang stuff:
There are so many little things in a kitchen that can easily be hung. Check out a few ideas.
This one is new. We had these strainers stacked with the skillets and it just didn’t work. They kept getting lost in the deep corner cabinet so I decided to hang them. We also added a light to help with this dark corner cabinet.
Bathroom/Powder Room cleaning:
The cleaning gloves would get lost in the cleaning bin and then get quite dirty from the cleaning products if one spilled so I saw this on social media and thought this would work for my cleaning gloves.
I used a large binder clip to hold the gloves together and hooked the metal part to the hook on the cabinet. Ingenious!
If you know anything about these hooks, they give you usually extra backing and sometimes even hooks, what to do with these?
Here was my solution to organize extra felt pads and hooks.
But wait! Here’s my before picture of the bin I used for all these extra Command(TM) hooks. I also stored felt pads in this bin for that last-minute replacement to chair legs.
I first sorted the items into like items and then labeled the bottom of each section of the divider bin. I purchased this lid divider bin from A.C.Moore Arts and Crafts (a craft store near me). The bin was from Adjustable Organizer by Nicole(TM) Quality Value. I couldn’t find a like for them. But here’s one I found on Amazon (aff.): Adjustable Organizer
NOTE: be sure to remove enough of the dividers so you can fit the hooks. If you have smaller items, be sure to remove the smaller vertical dividers as opposed to the horizontal ones. The horizontal ones usually run the length of the bin.
That is it! Here is the after picture. I am so happy with it. I can see everything and I don’t need to dig through the box. Plus without all the papers, it takes up less room in my tool area. Woo hoo!
Since I use different size hooks, I labeled those areas by size. I also had an area for large backings and small backing. I now can see that I need to replenish them soon.
This whole project took me 1 hour including going to the store and buying the bin. Not long at all.

I hope this inspires you to organize your small things. Let’s continue the conversation, what could you use a bin like this for? Do you use these hooks? How do you store them? Please leave a comment below. I would love to hear from you.
