My husband came home from the hospital with an open wound that has to be changed every day. The home nurse ordered all the dressings, tape, saline, and bandages we needed. This will need to be done everyday for about 6 months. It was a huge box of supplies that we had to organize.shoe organizer for medical supplies

I had bought this shoe organizer and hadn't used yet. I sent my brother/caretaker to the dollar store and he bought 2 door hooks. It works beautifully to keep our supplies organized and with in quick reach.

I love the cloth shoe organizers, I use them for everything. This is my arts n crafts/school stuff. I painted tin cans with spray paint and stuck them in the slots. One row is for erasers, pencils, makers, etc. One row for beads, gems, shapes, etc., and so on.

I have one in the bathroom for brushes, hair products etc. One in my cellar way for spray paints,poly etc. One in each kids room for whatever they use; hair stuff, cars, crayons, etc. I am working on making my own for my kitchen to hang on stove for spices, utensils, etc. Some of my cans are actually the lumineers I made for a party this summer.

When I was a preschool teacher, I would use those fabric shoe holders to organize things in my classroom. Every winter at home, I would constantly misplace my gloves, my scarves, etc.

The shoe organizers that you hang on a door are for more than shoes. I use on in my son's room for socks and underwear.

I bought a shoe holder that I could hang on the back of my office door and instead of putting shoes in it, I use it to organize my photographs.

Another use for those hanging shoe organizers. It seems we could never find both of a pair of gloves now we can see just where they are. Hats and other misc. things are also handy. The organizer is thumbtacked to the door.

Keep a small hanging organizer near the changing area for those everyday baby essentials like diapers, wipes, pacifiers, socks, hats, brush, bows/clips, nail clippers, etc.

I love over the door shoe organizers. They are great for a lot of those electronic gadgets with their manuals. I use to keep them in a drawer, this is so much easier.

Hang and over-the-door shoe organizer in your garage or on/near whatever door you exit. In it, stash all the grab-n-go items you may need - umbrella, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray, etc. Everything will be in one place and ready for the road when you are!

You can usually find plastic-pocket type "Shoe" holders at a dollar store. These are made from clear flexible vinyl pockets and are made to hang shoes on the wall or from a hanger in your closet. But you can also use them for many other things besides shoes.

Plastic over-the-door shoe organizers: seems every time you really look for something, is the time you cannot find it. I have seen these before, at the Dollar General, at the Dollar Tree, and neither is carrying them now, and I refuse to pay a fortune for such a thing. Does anyone know where else I could look to find these on the cheap?

We use the plastic over-the-door shoe organizer for every room. I got my dear husband sold on using them when he could never find the right cord/charger, etc., because they were all tangled in a box. I label the pocket and label the device cord so that when we are finished using them they go right back into their pocket to be found easily. I use the organizer in the bathroom to organized things like personal items (brushes, hair accessories, toothbrush cases, etc.).

I have not been able to find the cheap.. I mean "less expensive" shoe organizers since I have moved to a new city and I just will not pay what BB&B charges for theirs. I went to the Super Goodwill store and purchased several clear heavy duty clear shower curtain liners and a couple of twin flat sheets to match the room decor where the organizer was to go. I cut and hemmed the sheet material and added loops to the top of some and grommets to others. Then I sewed strips of the clear liner across the base fabric from side to side. Next I sewed from bottom to the top creating pockets. I find that if I sew strips of biased tape over the seam from bottom to top, this reinforces the pocket seam.

I decorated some with bias tape on the top edge of the pockets before sewing them to the base fabric. One of the closets does not have a door and I hung a rod on the inside. I used the material to create a fabric curtain to cover the door. I sewed the clear liner to it just like the other organizers and hung it with shower curtain rings. The organizer curtain appears to be a simple curtain, but holds belts, jewelry, and other personal items on the inside. I made a few pillow cases to match the "door curtain" to tie the fabric to the rest of the room.

I bought several two weeks ago at the Dollar Store in NC. Perhaps they will be offered in your dollar store soon.

I hung one on the inside of a door near the pantry and use its pockets to keep all my large stash of dry mixes such as gravy mixes, dressings, and chili mixes. It's so handy and easy to pick the gravy mix I want, whether it is turkey gravy or beef. It holds a lot of packets.

I use clear envelope multi-pocket organizers (like shoe organizers) and hang them in the closet and behind the door in my small sewing room. When I need to get a particular craft item, I can easily see it through the clear plastic.
