Awwww Kat… I love the idea of all of them & now I don’t know how I want to do it! Lol I have 2 possible spots… Under the kitchen bench..(where stools go..I’ve put them in the garage do its empty there).. I thought a shelf/cube kinda thing.. & I can hang a whiteboard & corkboard on the wall beside it! Then theres a small bit of wall in between my lounge room & dining room thats just empty.. I thought something similar or like a hallway table..drawer on top & shelf underneath! Hmmm now its decision time… Spose it’ll depend what I can find at the cheapest price as long as its not cheap/nasty looking! Lol
Kat just another question…where did u get that ‘LOVE’ hanging thing? Lol don’t ya just love my description of things! Yep I’m still half asleep!

These ideas are all fantastic but unfortunately we are in a rental house so I can’t use any of them.

Our unit is freestanding and we use 3M removable hooks, perfect for renting. 🙂

i think it’s the tiny house that benefits most from these systems. I am thinking of something like this down our hallway.

I just suggested creating an area like this in an article for Kleenex Mums… “Consider creating a zone somewhere near the front door for tired kids to drop their school bags, take off their smelly shoes and hang up their hats.” Great minds 🙂 Here’s the article if you’re interested: http://www.kleenexmums.com.au/back-to-school/back-to-school-preparations/

I love the photos and would like to know what approachs people have taken to rental properties where the ability to hang hooks etc is limited. Regards Kristy.

A portable version like this http://ana-white.com/2011/09/entry-cubbies might be a good idea – I love these!

i love this idea! Does anyone know where the set of 5 storage drawers in the 3rd picture down are from? I always thought they were Ikea but no luck! I really want to combine a few of these ideas and would love to get a set of the drawers/shelf…..Tjanks Kylie

Teannajames January 21, 2012 - 9:08 PM

Thank you!!! I have just set one of these up at our house. It’s a lot simpler and less pretty, but it’s functional and right now I am seeing school ports and handbags all hung and organised and ready for Monday morning. Woooohooooooo

Fabulous, thanks for the inspiration. Can you tell me where you found your hooks? We are having a bit of trouble getting something strong enough for school bags…thanks

Reply
Katrina January 27, 2012 - 10:02 PM

i found them at Bunnings, there is a wide selection available many different colours, sizes and varieties.

In the past I have put hooks under the kitchen bench (breakfast bar) this works in a rental.

Great idea!

Oh thankyou for this great idea, i was thinking how am i going to incorparate this idea into my house, with limited space ! Thanks !! 🙂

I was going to do this in our wide hallways (as I’m not lucky enough to have a carport attached to the house) however, I have just moved a hall table cause it just didn’t work. Both of my kids rooms, have a “useless” area just inside their door ways, where the built ins didn’t go all the was across. So I have put hooks on the walls there. So their bags have to go to their rooms….
Routine is get lunch boxes out and put in sink, homework on table, and then bag to bedroom.

Does anyone know where the ‘to do list’ white boards in Emily Ritchie’s photo are from? Or if she has a blog where the information may be? I’ve been looking for something like this for ages. Thanks

Reply
Katrina April 17, 2013 - 3:05 PM

No Kel, I’m not sure where they are from. But I will keep my eye out and let you know when I see some 🙂 Dollar shops are usually good for these boards.

Reply
rach January 16, 2014 - 12:30 PM

Hi kel, you could probably make them yourself – white board from cheap shop and photo frame and permanent marker 🙂

Amy August 10, 2015 - 12:08 AM
