Casa Quickie: Welcome Guests With a Shoe Organizer

TeamSugar member SweetPeasMom shared a great tip for making your guests feel right at home involving an over-the-door shoe organizer, which she repurposed. She says:

I hang an over-the-door shoe organizer on the back of the door of our guest room. In each of the different clear pockets I may include the following: a map of the local area, sun lotion, soaps and shampoos (usually the free hotel ones or samples), note cards, a good paperback book (with a note saying to take it with them if they haven't finished), candies, a flashlight, a variety of medications and personal items, a couple of stamps, postcards from the surrounding area, etc. My guests seem to really appreciate it. And it's amazing how many of these little things are free or very inexpensive.

That is so cute! I can't wait until I can afford to boot out a roommate and turn one of their rooms into a guest bedroom lol. I do have a lot of guests now, but they're relegated to the couch. But as soon as they get their own room I will definitely be doing something like this, since I love this sort of stuff!

We actually use a shoe organizer for our tools. We hang it on the back of a closet and put items in it you never think you need — but when you need them, it's so nice that they are handy. Hammer, nails, trashbags, duct tape, super glue... things like that... It's so nice not to have to go rummaging through rusty tools in the garage and having the things you need right at your fingertips.

That's an awesome idea. I have limited space in my bathroom so I use my shoe organizer to store my excess cosmetics, salves, medicine, hair accessories and ALL MY SUNGLASSES. The sunglass idea was genius. I knew I had a few but 12 pair- really?? Now I know where they all are!!!
