for the Teen bathroom, "May I Take Your Towel"? a coat rack for the towels that may need a home
I would put these at the bottom of our stairs, on for each child, to put toys and what nots that belong upstairs. They empty out every time they walk up or more realistically when we go up to bed at the days end. Main living area stays clean and each child is responsible for their own stuff.
An Organized Family Mount mail boxes, file holders, or matching baskets to a wall near the back door. Assign each family member a container and fill with essential items. Train kids to drop mail and important papers in the appropriate containers. Leave useful items for children -- such as lunch money, signed documents, or umbrellas -- and encourage them to check their container before leaving for the day.
Another cool idea for towel storage
The use of these hangers as towel bars would be more interesting if you used vintage ones with advertising printed or impressed on them and then hung them on interesting hooks - old metal schoolroom hooks, antique doorknobs, tiebacks, etc.
I am GOING to do this...The towel bar was simple to find, but we were having trouble finding the right kind of hooks. A nice associate at Home Depot gave me the idea to use shower curtain hooks. I ended up finding hooks at Target with two slots. I picked up a package of 12, along with an 18 inch towel bar, for less than $25.
