- Self adhesive hooks (these are the same one’s, sold on Amazon)
These essentials of mine used to be stored in a cupboard underneath the counter along with plastic baggies and wax paper and what not. Each time I needed to wrap something up, I had to bend down and dig through the various boxes to find what I was looking for. So I got looking at those boxes and thinking… and came up with the idea to hang them! The little notches on the ends are perfect for this!

Your blog is very hard to read because of the color of text. I would have liked to explore but I had to highlight the text so it would have some contrast so I could read it.
Elaine in Ark says
I have to agree with you, Linda. I’d prefer black text against white (or white-ish) background. I hadn’t t;hought about highlighting the text, so I’m happy about your suggestion.
And it *is* a great site!

You need to be aware of the depth of the boxes so the hooks can reach the holes, so no giant Costco sized rolls here!
Very clever idea. An not hard to do it looks like. Keeps from always bending down to find what you are looking for. Thanks for sharing.
Your videos are annoying and I can’t stop them from playing!!!!
I’m sorry. You should be able to pause them after the initial 15 second “commercial”.
Awesome! Now if only wrapping paper came with its own sharp tearing strip!
awesome tip!! Thanks so much~~
Your font color was perfect! I didn’t have any trouble, so perhaps it was Linda’s screen. I also did not have any video trouble, so do not apologize to these ungrateful people because I love your ideas!!! Can’t wait to pick up these clips! Thank you 🙂
This is awesome! To add a twist to this, those of us who live in apartments can use the “Command” brand hooks with the removable adhesive. Those things really do work and you have less worry about getting in trouble when you move out of your apartment.

Organizing my covers to my many pots, has been a problem . You have given me some great ideas, and this will also work for my foil and plastic wrap, and boxes of sandwich bags. I’m happy now, so, I’ll spend my day tomorrow, reorganizing my kitchen . I love a well organized kitchen !!

There r a lot of real good ideas on this page I just can’t figure out why I didn’t think of this stuff first. I already know why it is because I am not a creative person but ready and taking part in all the ideas I am starting to become creative I would like to thank you for all of the wonderful ideas.

I’m a Professional Art Quilter and use lots of supplies that come on rolls (some of which I use in the kitchen also like parchment paper, freezer paper, and wax paper. I also have rolls of other quilting supplies that are too big to fit into any of the drawers in my sewing room. You have now given me THE way to store all of these rolls! I’m lucky enough to have a walk-in closet in my sewing room that my husband fitted with shelves. The front of the door has a hanging bag with pockets where I store lots of small things but most of my rolls are way too big to put there so I have them stuffed in a big box that takes up valuable floor space in my sewing room. Now they are going to be stored on the back of the closet door! You are a genius! I can’t tell you how much this one little idea of yours will make my life sew much easier! (Spelling error was deliberate!)
Vicki K says
Thanks, this was super easy to do and works well!
This is such a nifty idea. I also have parchment paper and plastic wrap. This will clean up the place a bit. One question though: What do you do when the foil comes to an end. Replace the hooks?
Just replace the foil. You should be able to get the box of foil on and off without a problem. Hooks stay on!
Rosemary Lee says
Just way, way cool!! Thanks! Rosemary
Could you just use command hooks???
Yep, that would work too! 🙂
