I keep all the old vacuum tools from all of my defunct vacuums, if I don't give them away. Most tools are interchangeable, an extra extension wand or hosing will really come in handy.

My vacuum has several different nozzles plus a couple of extension wands. I was forever making trips back and forth to the closet where I keep them to get one thing or another. This got old really quick! So I put my thinking cap on and came up with a solution.

I got one of those hooks that goes over the door and that's where the hose goes. For the extension wands, they go in a tall bucket (mine is a tall cat litter bin that I covered with Contact paper). For all the nozzles and such, I have a bin that goes on the shelf in the closet and everything goes in there.

The places on my vacuum that are designed to hold the nozzles and such are a pain to get things into and out of. Plus once I do get the piece in there, it won't stay. So I took an old pillow case and cut it down to fit (I cut some off the bottom then restitched it), then ran a light rope through the top hem and I hang it on the vacuum. I put whatever tools I'll be using that day into the bag. When I'm done using it, the bag goes into the bin in the closet.

When vacuuming, hang the additional vacuuming tools on the vacuum. You can easily put the most commonly used tools in a plastic bag from the grocery store, and tie it on to the main part of the vacuum. This will eliminate going back and forth for your extra tools.

Also, the places on my vacuum that are designed to hold the nozzles and such are a pain in the rear to get things into and out of. So I took an old pillow case and cut it down to fit (I cut some off the bottom then restitched it), then ran a light rope through the top hem and I hang it on the vacuum. I put whatever tools I'll be using that day into the bag. When I'm done using it, the bag goes into the bin in the closet.

You can get wire racks to hold this type of thing, or, in my garage, where I keep my hose for the central vac now that the power head no longer works, and I have a Dyson, I have a large hanger that is originally for hanging up garden hose. Works great.
