Think beyond the obvious use as these are usually sold as coat hooks. You can do so much more with storage on the back of your doors!
Need more hooks? They also make the version pictured below which has an entire row of hooks. You can also click here to see a wide variety of hooks for the back of your door.

This version would also work great to organize necklaces. They do make jewelry organizers that hang over the back of your door as well.
