For the longest time I’ve had all a bunch of supplies in a little rolling cart that sat next to my desk in the studio. All of my scissors, pencils, pens, tapes lived there and it was super handy.
And then my kid turned into a toddler.
And all of a sudden the scissors were within his reach and the wash tape was getting tossed all over the place and my beloved rolling cart became a total nightmare.
I’d been hunting forever for a solution so that I could keep those supplies close and handy but out of reach of a certain little dude. Enter my pals (saving the day again!) at Command™, with these new organizer caddies. If you wanna be technical about it, they’re for the bathroom, but it turns out they look reallllly cute holding a bunch of gold scissors, too. Here’s how we got all organized.

Make Time: 20 Minutes
Step 1: Pick a spot on a wall, cabinet door, or inside a cabinet to hang them. Clean the area where you’ll be hanging the organizers as described on the package.
Step 2: Remove the white tub from the wire rack, separate the hanging strips, and peel off the blue sides. Apply the strips to the hanging area.
Step 3: Peel away the white side of the hanging strips, check that the rack is level, and press onto the area where you’d like to hang it. Press firmly for about 10 seconds.
Step 4: Slide off the wire rack (pull upward) and press the base again for 30 seconds. Allow the adhesive to cure for about 24 hours, then slide the wire rack back on and insert the white tub. Fill it with your stuff and high five yourself for being so organized!
You’ll be happy to know that Hank now cannot reach any pointy objects in the studio, although he’s a little dismayed to be able to see them and not play with them. He’ll get used to it. 😉 And I’m so glad to have found a solution that is strong and safe but not forever permanent, in case we decide we ever want to move it all around. I was dreading drilling holes into the walls or cabinets of our pretty new room. Problem solved! xoxo

Brilliant! This is really really smart. Do I spy toothbrush holders???
Well, that works! 😀
Where did you purchase the 3M command white containers and holders? I’d love to use these in my office.
