I have my Asker jars hanging on S hooks on a Grundtal bar. That works for me (although yes, the jars are then tipped a bit forward but I don't mind). See pic here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/plizzyp/5088541857/

I think it looks super stylish and cozy! Less formal than traditional seating with chairs all around. Would love to incorporate this in my living room.

I have a window sill that is placed lower than my counter top, making it a bit difficult to reach over the sink and fetch things. So I mainly use it for growing herbs and plants - well, wish I did - my fingers are not that "green".

Bags, keys, phone, wallet, sunglasses, mail, scarves and gloves, coats, boots, shoes.... all things I need to get rid of as soon as I enter my home.

I have a small hallway with 6 doors (!) leaving little room for storage furniture. Fortunately one of the doors leads to a closet deep enough to have both big shelves and a coat rack. In here I also keep my vacuum cleaner and brooms, recycling boxes and other household items. It needs some more efficient storage solutions though.

Mounted on the wall I have a little drawer where I keep extra keys, batteries, ipod. The surface is just big enough for throwing my keys, phone and wallet there.

I'm doing a one-room treatment during this cure, but I will take some time to rearrange my closet.

I have been at the coffee shop in this picture. It is situated in Copenhagen. Very cozy place with good brunch and food. You can lend any of the pocket books on the shelves while you sip your coffee and do your laundry in the adjoined laudrette! (hence the name of the café: Laundromat).

I'm at it again - Did the Fall Cure 08, but sort of drifted off halfways. Cross my fingers for more determination this time. Looking forward to some Spring Curing and Cleaning!

You can also go to your local shoeshop and ask for empty shoe boxes. Then you can cover them with nice fabric or wall paper (using spray glue) and add a printed digital photo on the front of which pair of your shoes lives in the box. Now you can easily find/store your shoes and don´t have to check several boxes before you fnd what you need.
