Did you know an over-the-door shoe bag isn't just for shoes? It's true! Our organizing expert, Zorianna Kit, explains how to transform a hanging shoe bag into a storage solution for all kinds of household goods.

"Like most busy families these days, I'm always looking for ways to save time and money, and for me, that means being organized," says Zorianna. "If I'm going to buy a product to make my life more efficient, I want to make sure it's a good investment. One of my favorite things to do is to re-purpose an organizer to make it work for me in other useful ways."

An over-door shoe bag is for 12 pairs of shoes. It can usually be purchased for under $10 at most discount stores or online. Be sure it has clear plastic pouches and sturdy seams.

"However, I'm not using an over-door shoe bag for my shoes," says Zorianna. "I've going to use it to organize all of my cleaning products so they're at my fingertips instead of jammed under the sink."

First, find the door where you want the bag to hang. It could be your laundry room, service porch, the door to the garage. Place the  hooks over the top of the door and attach the bag. Gather up all of your cleaning products. Then just place each of them in a pouch. You can even organize them according to the type of product.

"In just minutes, you have everything within eyesight and at your disposal," says Zorianna. "The great thing about re-purposing is that you are only limited by your own imagination."
