Welcome to Day 18 0f 31 Days of Getting Organized by Using What You Have.

I have a great love of clothespins. It’s probably because they’re cheap and very versatile. They’re handy but can also be beautiful by adding glitter, paper, ink, fabric, or paint. Or just leave them natural because they’re pretty awesome that way too.

Organize using Clothspins

I stamped the clothespins with food names to close up the bags and keep the contents fresh. It’s so much easier than twist ties and my kids actually use them.

I clipped the clothespins on the pockets of an over-the-door shoe organizer to label the contents of each pocket. I hung it on the inside of the pantry door for easy access.


Add magnets to the back of the scrapbook paper covered clothespins and attach to a magnetic board to post important papers (and lunch money) on.
