Use @CommandBrand Clear Hooks to Get Organized for The School Year! {#GIVEAWAY} #Canadian

As I mentioned earlier this week, this time of year marks organization for me! It’s all about starting new routines and getting organized for a new school year.

One product that I have found very helpful in our home is Command Brand hooks! I love how the new Command Clear hooks are easy to put up, removable, damage free and invisible. The clear hooks are less intrusive than other coloured hooks, but become very useful when the need for a hook arises.

We use hooks in our closets and in the kitchen to hang the kids’ lunch bags.
