24 Genius Ways To Use Command Hooks Around The House

The command hook is a simple, inexpensive little thing, but don't be fooled - there's gold in them there hooks! I first became acquainted with the command hook (and its cousin, the command strip, used for hanging posters) back in college. Our dorms were built several hundred years ago and the school was pretty finicky about using nails and such, so command hooks and strips were pretty much the only approved option for being able to hang anything on your walls - at least without losing your security deposit. 

Fast forward to adult life and I'm living in a rented apartment where I once again can't use nails to put up anything. Once again, I find myself turning to my old friend the command hook. Most people generally don't go too much further than using them to hang up a framed picture or something else fairly obvious, but it turns out that with a little creative thinking, you can use them all over the house!
