It was many years ago when my sister introduced me to this AWESOME storage and organizational technique. You've seen the over-the-door hanging shoe organizers I'm sure. Well, they can hold other things! (duh, I know) When you buy the clear plastic ones, they create windows that you can put things in and be able to see what's in each pocket. For years now I have had one on almost every door in my house! Why not utilize that unused space right? It keeps things organized, and is a great way to store and organize little nick-nacks that don't seem to have a place. Plus if you live in a house like mine where you are bursting at the seams because of small house for the size of family, or just not much storage room it's perfect!
Here's some of the things I use mine for- you'll just have to look past the disorganized clutter of the pockets though ;)
This first one is on the inside of our master bathroom, it holds all the medicine, band aids, prescriptions, etc. And it's nice because my bathroom door is usually open it keeps these things out of sight of the kids. And I have the option to put the more dangerous things in the top pockets where they can't reach them.
This next one is the flip side of our master bathroom door- yes you can put them on BOTH sides of the door! This one holds my make-up, hair products, perfume, nail polish & remover, hair cutting items, all that girly stuff, and I even let my hubby have a couple pockets :)
This last picture is the flip side of my master bedroom door. It holds misc crafts and supplies such as glue, ribbon, etc.
My next plan is to get a wire shelf style one for my kitchen to put fruits in.....
