Hooks around the house

by Andrea Cooley

I love me a good hook up (not that kind of hook up, get your mind out of the gutter!) so today we're continuing our week of all things storage and organizing with ideas for using hooks around the house.

hooks in the kitchenIf you don't want to screw something in the wall, Command hooks are great. I stuck little hooks on the cabinets on either side of the sink. On one side, I hang Emerson's bibs. It keeps them off the counter and if they are wet, they drip into the sink. hooks in the kitchenI hang the colander on the other side. It's one of those things I use all the time and it was forever sitting in the drying rack. Now it's out of the way, but easy to grab when I need it. When I first hung it up Adam kept forgetting it was out and would still dig in the cabinet for it. Now he knows to look up!

We used to have a coat rack here, but I felt like it took up too much room and looked messy. There were already hooks hung low on the wall but we weren't really able to use them with the coat rack in front of them. So I moved the coat rack to the basement, maybe one day I'll sell it on Craigslist, and found a row of hooks at Target.

How do you use hooks at your house?
