Back 2 School Organized : 3M Has Your Hanging Needs Covered! #Giveaway

Almost a month into school, I have realized it is imperative to be organized.  The never-ending onslaught of artwork,  the jackets laying on the foyer floor, the lunch sacks, the back packs! ~Sigh~ In no time, the counters are full of junk.  (And here I thought we were all aiming to be more  paperless??)

This led to some reorganizing... to help the kids help me!  I have moved their bedroom furniture around to be more functional and to better reflect their ages. I hung up cork bulletin boards in each of their rooms for the artwork, and I added some hooks at kid-height for coats and back packs in the foyer.  As for the lunch sacks coming straight out of their bags upon returning home from school... we're still working on that one!   

3M™  had sent us some 'Command' hooks for review, so I decided to utilize them in my quest for improved organization. The 'Command' hook is a hanging tool that can be removed when I choose, but it will not take off half-the-wall with it when I do.  This hook 'grows' with us and is available in many sizes and styles.

Hanging a 3M Command hook for a Fall Wreath good to 5lbs:

Step 1: Using Isopropyl Alcohol, wipe area lightly and let dry.  
Do not use a household cleaner.

Step 2: Remove RED Command Adhesive liner.  
Align the square end with the raised line on back of hook.  
Press firmly.

Step 3: Remove BLACK wall slide liner.  
Position hook and press entire hook firmly for 30 seconds.
Slide hook carefully off its base, then press down for another
 30 seconds on only the adhesive part.  
Replace hook when done.

Step 4: Wait 1 hour before usage.

We loved how multi-use and easy-to-use these hooks are and even used a few to hang up towels around the hot tub. I'm not sure how they'll stand up to the outdoor weather, but for now, they are a reasonably priced option that will be well-used.
