26 Ideas for Organizing Your Life with Command Hooks

Command hooks are lifesavers especially when it comes to decluttering and organizing your home on a budget. These inexpensive hooks can be stuck anywhere and can be removed without difficulty and damage to the surface. They serve as hanging solutions for almost anything you can think of.

Here are some old and new ideas for organizing with command hooks.

Glam up your hooks

Sure, most of us think command hooks are a godsend, but sometimes the white plastic hooks can look a bit tacky. One great way to not make them look cheap is with a little paint job. You can choose a color that blends with the surrounding surface, go for something bright and glitzy, or a faux metal look that goes well with anything.
