With back to school in full swing and I know many parents are trying to tame the clutter that school brings whether your children go a bricks and mortar school or are homeschooled. We all like to have all the school stuff in one spot in our home so homework is easy accessible and those dreaded papers that have to be filled out get filled out and returned to school.

At our house it is even the case of getting some children settled into University and dorm rooms. It was while organizing my daughter new apartment that we came across 3M products, we loved that they were removable so that she wouldn't have to worry about repainting her apartment or making holes in the walls. The hooks were white in colour back then but NOW they have clear hooks and I have fallen in love with them.

I find it most impressive for hanging up school bags. Yes we have a school bag mind you ours is used mainly for field trips, bike trips and library trips. Back to why it impressed me so much well it actually holds the backpack without falling off the wall. Sometimes there is a fair bit of weight in there too.

I have to say one of my favourite items that I have used is the cord clips. I really dislike having wires hanging where everyone can see them and these clear clips allow me to hide the wires in discrete spots that are out of sight and out of mind.

All you have to do is attach these handy hooks (pictured to the right) to the item you want to hide the cord behind or if you want to make a cord secure just attach these removable clips to the item or wall and insert the cord. I have removed them in my house many times and I love that they do not damage my furniture or my walls.
