Getting Ready for Back to School with Command Clear
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
For the past several months, I’ve been busy on huge project: clearing the clutter and organizing my home. I try to do a little everyday whether it’s just organizing a drawer or going through old totes in the basement. It’s coming along, but slowly. I’m ok with that though. Even a little progress is better than none at all.
Getting organized for back to school is a big undertaking for parents. Of course, there’s the back-to-school shopping for supplies and new clothes. It’s also important to get your home organized too. Whether it’s setting up a quiet area for kids to do their homework or cleaning out closets to make room for new clothes, it’s better to just get it done now than be in panic mode the night before school starts or not getting it done at all.
3M’s Command brand has recently introduced a new line of products to help you organize: Command Clear. They are transparent so they will blend easily into your decor and help you prepare for the chaos to come.
To organize cords, use Command Clear’s Round Cord Clips or Flat Cord Clips. I hate having cords running across the floor not only because it looks terrible, but it’s also a tripping hazard. The latter I’ve learned from experience. They are perfect to organize a home office area where there’s naturally lots of stray wires that need a home. They also work great for your entertainment area. Basically anywhere you have multiple cords, use this product to keep them looking neater.
I always associate the Command with hooks. Command Clear has a variety of transparent hooks you can use to get organized. My kitchen is a work in progress, but once it’s done I can put up the Utensil Hooks for my spatula, oven mitts and towel. I won’t have to ruin the new drywall with a nail either and leave a hole in the wall.
Command Clear Mini Hooks will support up to 0.5 lbs and can be used for lighter items like keys, hats, scarves, jewelry, a calendar etc. Command Clear Medium Hooks hold up to 2 lbs and would be good for hanging coats or bags.
If your child is going off to university or college this year, send them off with some Command Clear products. They are simple to put up and take down and won’t cause damage to the wall. They will also work on a variety of surfaces.
I really like that the Command Clear products aren’t obtrusive and barely noticeable. Long gone are the days when we used to ruin the wall with an ugly nail!
Command Clear products come in a variety of sizes and can be found in stores across Canada including Staples, Walmart, Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Home Hardware and Target for a SRP of $5.15 to $12.49.
