I used to think having a dog was messy. Then I had kids… Wow does the clutter pile up on ya. Now that I have 3, I really understand how messy it can be. Keeping a clean and organized house is practically impossible. I have toys laying around everywhere, clothes in every corner of the house, and art supplies everywhere I look. Recently I discovered this nifty little invention, it’s called the Ultimate Sock Hanger, or the U.S.H., and I found it does a lot more than just organize miscellaneous socks! Here are some other ways the U.S.H. helped me:
1) Giada’s hair bow collection is extensive, to say the least. The U.S.H. helped me keep all her headbands orderly and easy to find, now I no longer have to go digging through a basket to search for that perfect piece.
2) My office was once a craft room where I used to make and sell those hair bows that have filled up Giada’s basket to the rim. I’m a bit of a craft supply hoarder, I can’t find it in me to throw anything away! I just know that as soon as I do, I’ll be looking for that one tiny piece of ribbon that would’ve been perfect for a project I’m working on. So now I have a spot to keep it all, thanks U.S.H.! Out of sight, out of mind… so I never got any use out of all my supplies. The U.S.H. makes it easy to have all my scraps displayed so I can see them, then can be easily hid away when I shut the closet door.
3) These baby hats are everywhere around my house! The hospital has a group of generous volunteers who sit and knit these caps for newborns all day long, and each time one of them came to visit the baby & I they gifted us with one (or 2, or 3) for Johnny to wear. They’re adorable don’t get me wrong, but I think we have enough hats now to cloth an entire nursery. Now I can keep them all hung in his closet and pick one out in no time.
4) Last but not least, socks! After all, that is what the U.S.H. was made for! The Ultimate Sock Hanger tackles the issue of missing socks, it provides a simple solution to that problem we all seem to have. Instead of tossing them in the trash because you can’t find the matching one, only to find its counterpart a day later, you can keep them all in one spot hanging above your washer and dryer.
So my house may still be very messy and look like a war zone half the time, but any little bit helps! Now I’ve got a few of the messiest things under control, and I’m sure if I tried more I’d find additional ways to use this awesome little invention. How would you use the U.S.H.? I’d love to know!
