Kids bring home a lot of art projects, and there is only so much surface area on a refrigerator. Steill recommends assigning each child a plastic box to store projects as they come in. Once the box is full, weed it down to your (and their) faves.
Using PVC pipe and some rope you can easily add a second clothing bar to you closet. Perfect for small apartments or if you have little kids that can't quite reach the top bar. Another idea would be to use a spring-loaded shower curtain rod allowing you to adjust the height as needed
Keep the basics you reach for as you head out — keys, umbrella, a dog leash — in a clear over-the-door shoe rack. Or think of it as a more-organized junk drawer, where you can stash batteries, rubber bands, or flashlights.
Remove the cardboard bar on the bottom of a wire pant hanger, and reshape the ends with pliers to make hooks for flats and flip-flops. Slip your shoes on the newfangled rack and give yourself a pat on the back. This brilliant project was inspired by Jen Yates, of epbot.com.
