Over-the-Door / Wall Pocket Organizer: do you love yours?

Maura63March 30, 2006

I have a wall pocket organizer from Ikea (bought 10 years ago) that I love. It hangs inside a closet door and stores DH's various accessories that he mostly uses in the garage or outdoors.

I would like to reclaim this space for organizing some of the kids' sports paraphernalia, But, I want to buy another one of these organizers for the garage (for DH's stuff).

Ideally I would love another from Ikea, but I won't be there anytime soon. Plus, I looked on their website and on Ebay and could not find the same/similar item. I like this particular one because it is canvas, it is durable, and instead of the usual 20 or 24 pocket style, it has only 12 roomier pockets.

I've located canvas organizers on various website, but wondered if anyone here could endorse a particular one. Pocket roominess and durability are key. I don't need *a lot* of pockets, but I definitely need *roomy* pockets.

There's a link below to the type of organizer I am looking for. Where did you get yours, and are you very satisfied with it?

Thank you!

Maura

I have three: Laundry Room Door-Tools, tape, nails, rulers, picture hangers, well basically things usually in a junk drawer.
Office-Craft supplies like hot glue gun and refills, floral supplies.
Guess Room-Creature comforts like linen spray, magazines, candy, lotions, etc.

Each is just a see-through shoe holder cut at the appropriate length. I don't know if it would be as functional for me if it wasn't see through especially the junk drawer one.

We hang the canvas pockets inside each kids' closet door. Right now each pocket holds a Beanie Baby from an auntie who gives the kids three or four every year. Not sure when or how this tradition will end.
The pockets are roomy, the material is strong, and I like the natural look of it.

If your kids are like mine, they will tire of their Beanie Babies when they become teens. Between the 3 of them, we had quite a collection. Quite a few went to my preschool, and the others to charity. I have to say, I don't miss them - but it sounds like you found a great solution for storing them!
