Oh the little things...

Batteries, pencils, twist ties, rubber bands, legos, toiletries, tea candles, you know, the little things. Stuff you really do need but they're just begging to be organized. You already know I'm not going to tell you to throw them in a drawer and forget about it.

Nope. Not this girl.

I'm going to give you great tips for ways to make those little things look beautiful and be right at your fingertips when you need them!

Let's start in the heart of the home!

The kitchen.

An over the door organizer doesn't have to hang over a door. What!? Right!

Use hardware or my personal favorite 3M hooks, to hang on a wall.

Inside a pantry, just outside the kitchen door in the garage, you name it. Put those handy wipe, cleaners, fresh rags or sponges there. Baking soda, vinegar, cleaners, brushes, and other cleaning tools. In fact, this would work just as well in the laundry room as the kitchen.

Consider putting water bottles, Ziploc boxes, foil, seasoning packets, snacks, the ideas are limited only to what you have to stuff it with! Ah.... all those little things - tidy. Be still my heart.

The Bathroom.

Can't you see how handy this would be in a small space? You can put everything where you can see it easily. The bonus is that because I can easily see it, I can easily put it back! Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

These over the door organizers are workhorses! You could put bathing suits, unders, diapers, pull-ups, washcloths, shampoo, conditioners, brushes, hairdo pretty thingys.

The Bedroom.

Scarves, socks, belts, t-shirts..... the pins on Pinterest telling you what to put in one of these for your closet is endless. Don't forget toys... dog toys. What? your dogs don't use your closet?

The Office. 

This might be my favorite. No junk drawers here! Just beautifully sorted office supplies. They make me happy. Just looking over at them makes me smile. Rubber bands, binder clips, power cords, batteries, post-it notes, markers, sharpies, scissors.....all in one organized place. 

Kids Room.

Don't skip this is you don't have kids. You probably have a fur baby - which is really a kid, come on. Toys, stuffies, legos, small books, small shoes, small clothes, and so many tiny things. 

Also, this is a great idea for kids rooms: Toy Library


Ornaments! or cold weather gear. Perfect for gloves and hats, scarves, wool socks..... this thing can go in your car too!

So, isn't your head just swimming with good ideas? Go forth, get an over the door organizer! Be organized!
