3. Broom And Mop Holder
Brooms and mops are often left scattered in the utility room or garage. By the time you need to clean something, you will find the mop head too dirty to use without cleaning it first. Using a broom and mop holder can help keep everything organized. It’s also perfect for other items such as dustpans, or rakes, anything with a handle. Stick ‘em to the hall closet, garage, laundry room, or utility room door.

Let’s face it — sometimes, with a dozen keys on our keyring, it takes us some time to try to figure out which is the right key for the front door.
Solve the problem by attaching colorful caps to your keys. These caps can make it easier for you to identify which key goes to which door.

These shelf dividers can be used on your closet for your clothes or in your linen closet to store towels and linens. They’re made of chrome, or steel, they’re durable and can last for years.

Baskets can be used to store things you use every day. We often see them, but, we don’t use them. A few years ago we switched from our ages old waterbed to a regular mattress, the one thing I thought I couldn’t do without was the headboard storage. Waterbeds always have ornate, but, practical headboards with storage. My daughter grabbed 2 baskets from my closet and filled them with all the “stuff” from my headboard and slid them onto the shelves of my bedside table… so simple, yet an effective and super quick and easy solution – I would have never thought of it!
Place a basket or two in your bedroom and store extra bedding. You can also place one on top of your kitchen counter to store vegetables and fruits. You can put the cleaning supplies you use for each room in it’s own basket and pull that basket out when you clean that room – like the bathroom or kitchen.
