Organizing Your Life?

If clutter has you down and you are considering streamlining your life, we have solutions for you! 


Becoming more minimalist can be a daunting task, and for the sentimental among us, it can be next to impossible.  The good news is, you can create attractive storage spaces and hanging solutions without having to part with absolutely everything you hold dear.  


Advice on paring down abounds.  It really boils down to a relatively simple concept:  a place for everything and everything in its place! With each item you consider bringing into your home, think in your mind’s eye what space that item will occupy---both while in use and while in storage between uses. 


Often clothing and towels put a damper on our organizational efforts.  Some older homes lack ample closet and storage space. The good news is, with some creativity, we aren’t always limited by architectural deficiencies.  Are there nooks and crannies in your home that can be repurposed to make room for items that you want to keep without contributing to the clutter?


Repurposing space can be a lot simpler than you think.


HOOKS, HANGERS, AND HINGES:  Take, for instance, the simple hookBear Hollow Supply carries many beautiful, quality made hooks and hangers in an array of styles and sizes to help you with your organizing needs.  


Tangled jewelry can be a thing of the past with our small jewelry hooks in a variety of finishes.  Line them up, affix them in an upright arrangement, or use them in a concept all your own, there are plenty of jewelry hook options to choose from.


Scarves, belts, and other items can be draped over hooks letting you accessorize at a glance.


Bear Hollow Supply has larger coat hooks that can be used to create unique hall trees and wall mounts that both beautify and simplify. 


The shoe bench is a popular way to address entry door clutter.  Bear Hollow Supply has the hinges you need to create an out-of-sight place to stick hats and gloves.  Give your piece your own signature design by selecting the right hooks to tie the whole look together.
