Hooks Help!

Hooks can be a lifesaver when you want to decrease the clutter that catches on your closet floor, on chairs, or beside doors.  Adding hooks to your space offers a temporary resting place for the things that are still in use or in transition.

A hook only has so much space before things start to fall off or it pulls out of the wall (yikes!)-  which means that hooks create a boundary around how much can be stored.  When you can’t add anything more, it might be time to check what’s hanging there & move it to it’s rightful place.

And feel free to think outside-the-box with hooks!  Here are some hooks that are being put to good use in our house that might inspire you to give hooks a try!
