I was thinking of buying a peg board and hooks to hang up items like razors,floss,cough drops ect. How do ya'll hang up items? I really need to do something cause I have alot of things that need to be hung up and not lay around lol also how do you rotate your items, I read somewhere to write down each item in your stockpile that has an expiration I'm thinking of soing something like that.

 I think it's a good idea.  I have mine in clear bins with lids. All the razors stand up and I can still see them and easily pull the whole lot off the shelf.

 i don't have a stockpile room...that'd be nice though. all the toothbrushes, floss, etc. are in a shoe box in a dresser lol. i was sick of them taking up space in my bathroom. now when we need new toothbrushes i just pull them out and the rest stay put.

I have about 1/2 of my items on shelves and kept the rest in a big bin for the longest time. Now that I'm getting a little more organized I have seperated the "bin" items on the top of the pool table and I'm slowly getting enough smaller bins for each group of items. I still need 2 more shelves, I'll get them soon. One more to hold more food items, and another to hold the non-food items and the bins. They're the clear plastic with lids so I can see what's in them.  I'm so mad at myself now though. I used to have 3 of these hanging racks that you see in stores....like the kind you see at Walmart that rotate and you just hang the items on it. I got rid of them before I started couponing. Ugh! I would be able to hang sooooo much stuff!

 I think we might have the same system!

I don't hang anything. I have 2 shelves and use the top of the pool table. LOL I kick myself all the time because I used to have a few of the spinning racks the stores have, that you hang things on. I sold them when I moved and now I could really use them!
