Simply Stashed

Organize your stuff

A Place for Everything

It’s not just the grommets that make these hanging storage pockets irresistible (though we admit a bias for anything with a grommet). It’s the combination of sturdy pockets, eco-friendly fabrics, easy labeling options, and convenient hangers.

The creator is entrepreneur Christy Hicks, who was less than impressed with a plastic shoe holder she got from a professional organizer and set out to design a better vertical storage system that looks as good as it performs. Her Simply Stashed organizers come in a range of designs
and configurations. Variety Stash has 14 pockets of different sizes, so you can store small and large items together. It extends nearly the length of a door (52 inches), with plenty of room for whatever you’re organizing: clothes, school supplies, kitchen accessories, you name it. For smaller spaces, the 36-inch-long Mini Stash has 15 pockets, perfect for organizing your jewelry or consolidating baby supplies.

In the garage, Christy’s Sportsman organizer can hold loads of outdoor gear and sports equipment -- including helmets and balls -- in one place. It has 11 mesh pockets of varying sizes, plus one extra-long pocket for bats, racquets or lacrosse sticks.

With storage options like these, the prospect of spring cleaning is a lot more appealing!

    I love how you approached the design of these and made them durable, attractive, and flexible. My mind is racing trying to think of all the places I could use one of these.

    @Katherine Klinger: Katherine, there are so many places to use our organizers that we often sell more than one at a time. Some suggestions include kitchen, bath, laundry room, back door, crafts, wrapping paper, kids toys, hair bows, legos kids art supplies and jewelry. Thanks for your comments.

    You need a version with zippers for full transport. Hanging clear file pouches are very common for For events, productions, and running meetings so with this as an accompaniment you could bring the SS organizer and set it up, unzip all the pockets for access to office and related items. Ideal and efficient because people will simply be able to see where things are rather than having to ask. For work you might make it with a more serious biz gray background. A fun one might be used for crafting/beading/scrapping groups.

    What a cool idea. I especially like the Sportsman Version. Maybe I can get my teenage boys to put their stuff away if they know it will be easier to find later. Definitely worth a try!

    @Gene: Gene, we do sell a great deal of organizers for the boys room. They are very durable and the boys can see what is in the pockets. Good luck!

    @James Seedorf: James, I hope you give GEAR Pockets a try. They are so durable and will hold heavy items like flash lights, sports gear and so much more. The things that never really have a place just seem to get lost. Try one in your laundry room!

    It's a "shoe rack" that I could buy at any Target store for less than $10.

  • Katherine

    @PGeo: That was exactly Christy's jumping off point. She had a professional organizer come in and help her get organized, and the organizer used the cheap discount organizers. They weren't rugged, they weren't attractive, they didn't offer a variety of pocket sizes, they didn't have labeling, etc. Christy set out to offer another option that was ideal for organizing more than just shoes.

    @PGeo: it does look like the shoe racks at first. In fact, they are different in many ways. First, they are much more durable and completely lined with double stitching. My cheap ones ripped within one month. Second, the pocket sizes vary to give you a much better way to keep your items organized. Finally, they have a complete labeling system that come with the item. This helps you STAY organized. For those that are Eco conscience, our products are made environmentally friendly.

    Great idea! I have so many punches, embellishments, & stamps for my cardmaking that this would be just the thing! Will definitely have to set some money aside for this!

    @Marie: Marie, thanks for writing in about scrap booking. We love to sell these to crafters, quilters and sewers. I sew and nailed my organizer directly to my wall right beside my machine. It make sewing so much easier. We would love to see a photo with punches.

    I have a cd organizer that hangs over the door. I bought it 7 yrs ago and it's time to replace it as the pockets are getting torn. It's been the best way to store kids cds. Do you have a product that does this?

    @Sarah: Good luck with your search! No, simply stashed doesn't have a solution that is specific to CDs.

    Love the concept. Is there anyway that you could come up with a way to "layer" multiple "simply stashes"? I have loads of items, I wouldn't want to have one door for each set of simply stashes. I'd like to see that I could go to one location in my house and have 12 simply stashes all in one place and be able to view all. Kind of like a vertical Rolodex of simply stashes. I hope you can interpret what I'm describing.

    @Mike: That's a great idea! These do have grommets at the top for hanging, so you could somehow stabilize the top and then string a cord from grommet to grommet that loops over a closet bar. The other advantage to hanging them over a door though, is that it gives you that back stability. They may not hang perfectly straight when hanging freely. It's worth trying though, because it's a great way to store all of those small items.

    Maybe you could use something like this to hang the 'Simply Stashes' -

    Love it!!! I would lik to pass alon why. I live in a vey small place -450 sf. with 1 closet. I could use this on the wall of my 'office'- porton . of my livng room for pape clips, pencils, mail etc.

    Troubleshooter, here is my problem. The walls are semi gloss stucco finish and not even scotch clear packingtape will stay. Using nails can be iffy on these walls and how to hold up the weight of the Stasher. Ilovethe concept. Because I rent, I do not want to put holes in the wall, and, In the same vein I am trying to , as my Irish mother would say, " get my sh** out of here and off the floor".. The room size is 13' 2" x 10'x4".

    @ Elle Law -

    Any chance that the larger 3M Command Adhesive Wall Hooks would work? They leave no holes, no trace sticky residue, and won't damage paint or most any surface finish. I think they would actually work on stucco! I believe the large sizes accomodate up to 5 lbs. each. So, if you used 2 (1 hook for each grommet) you could have 10 lbs. of weight. Or, if you're feeling very ambitious, you could try stringing a grosgrain ribbon through the grommets so that you have four or more hooks in a neat row holding the organizer by the ribbon, thereby distributing the weight; giving you a max of 20+ lbs. of weight bearing.

    I hope this, or some other solution, works out for you!

    Two questions. Someone thought it was no more than a "shoe bag". I liked your reply. Can the larger one be used for shoes? Most of my closet doors are bi-fold so the ideas of other ways to hang the bag were quite useful. I have been looking for a new way to store my shoes in our small condo.
