Getting Organized with Hooks

So, how was day one of getting organized? Did you organize something? I'm not going to lie, I was a little thrown off. Jeremy was post call, so he was upstairs sleeping. That means upstairs was off-limits for the majority of the day. Upstairs is where I want to organize. I did, however, manage to organize Stella's bows--lots and lots of bows. I bought a hanging shoe organizer (that hooks to the back of a door), and put her bows in the clear compartments, organized by color...so much better! I also got rid of a ton of her old bows. My goal for today is to organize my dresser drawers. They have gotten a little unruly!

Today I'm featuring some beautifully organized mud rooms, entries, and bathrooms. It's all about the hooks, baby! I'm also a HUGE fan of hooks on the backs of doors and in closets--major space savers! Seriously, the hooks in my entry were one of the first things to go up on the wall. I don't want anyone (not mentioning names) in my household to have ANY reason to put coats and bags on the floor. They go on the hooks!

  1. I really appreciate organization tips. Completing the laundry cycle (folding and putting away right after washing and drying) is the hard thing for me. But I did make my bed yesterday. Thanks for the reminder.

    I'm going to be gone for a week next month and if you would like to guest post about organization (like yesterday's post) on my blog that would be super. Let me know.

  2. I wish I had a place to decorate with hooks! I love them too!

  3. I like this post. Any ideas for organizing shoes specifically? I've tried baskets but it's still crazy. We're always digging through them.


Thank you for your comments, it makes my day! If you have a question, I will answer it in the comments section as soon as I can. You can also email me at jamiejjoyal@gmail.com.
