Broom Closet Organizer

Martha Stewart Living, January 2006

Hooks and clips keep mops and brooms tidy and tools at hand. If you've ever reached for the feather duster and had everything in the closet come tumbling out, try this: Screw hooks and spring-loaded clips inside and use them to hold brooms, a dustpan, mop, and duster. Do the same with tools on the door and you won't have to get out the toolbox for quick repairs. Store cleaning supplies in a bucket to transport them easily from room to room.

    This sounds like a fabulous idea! I am just getting ready to re-organize my utility closet. I will for sure use these ideas!

    Great ideas! I will use non-spring clips as they are to difficult to remove tools from with hands that have lost their strength. The bucket idea saves steps, time and stress.

    I don't think this will work for me as I have hollow core doors.

    I like the 2 bucket suggestion! Off to the shops tomorrow to buy a second one!

    I would also suggest storing the cleaning supplies in 2 buckets stacked inside one another (instead of just 1) - this way, when you need to actually use the bucket to hold water for cleaning, you don't have to unload all the supplies which means I always have these items sitting all around until I am finished cleaning - and beyond, because after cleaning the bucket must be cleaned/dried before the items can go back in.
