Storing Vacuum Cleaner Parts and Carpet Cleaner Hoses

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.

I have one of those empty kitty litter bins, as well. How do I cover the bin smoothly, without wrinkles? It's narrower at the bottom. So how do I apply the contact paper, so that I don't end up crossing over the top of the paper with itself?
I can visualize almost any description, if I can just see it with my mind's eye.
Thank you ever so kindly, Miss Bonnie

I used velcro strips to attach my tools to the front of my vacuum cleaner on the door that covers where the bag goes.Now they stay with the vacuum and I don't have to worry about storing them.
