A resourceful homemaker knows that whatever you find at home, you can find another purpose for it—including command hooks. These adhesive plastic strips can do a lot more than suspend posters and paintings. Believe it or not, it can be very handy for tidying up your kitchen counter, clearing your desk of writing tools and keeping stubborn decor pieces in place—after all, nothing is impossible with a little creativity, right? 

To help you maximize this unassuming hardware staple, here are some ideas you can try: 

If you can't get a wreath to stay in place, try sticking an upside-down command hook on the other side of the door and securing your ribbon on it. The best part? There's no need to put nails through your front door. 

Keep your desk neat and your essentials accessible by using command hooks to hang little tin pails. Organize your pens, clips, supplies and whatever you can think of in different containers for a charming workspace. 

A single hook attached to the back of a high-chair can easily double as bib storage for the young ones. If you need to clean, decorate or donate the chair later—you can easily remove the hook without any residue. 

If you've already run out of room in your cupboard for spare mixing bowls and strainers, a few command hooks stuck to the wall can free up counter space. Consider hanging your best-looking cookware to keep your aesthetic easy on the eyes. 

Since you wear them on your hands, prevent gloves and rags from mixing with other germ-ridden cleaning tools by hanging them on the backside of the door. You can hang brushes, sponges and other small equipment here, too.
