I know I know I must be a little sad really to be so excited about getting this thing, but I have been obsessing about being organised and not wasting time foostering about looking for things in the cabin, after all we are 3 ladies, with a LOT of baggage (both really & psychologically lol) So today I am happy , and it was marked down to 1Euro , now to continue my addiction to CC.That is funny, cause I was just telling My dd how I need to find a clear one for our upcoming cruise! I have heard it is great way to stay organized in the tiny rooms
At home I use them for my DD's small toys (Polly Pockets, ponies etc) Makes it easy to see and keep off the floor!
I hemmed and hawed and decided against it.
I have always found there to be plenty of cabinet space for storage.
Maybe we always had big enough rooms but I couldn't see wasting the space.

Where exactly do you hang these things? On the inside of the bathroom door on the hooks to hang towels or in the closet? I've never needed one but it's always just the two of us. I have thought about bringing one to actually put shoes in.
When I used one (back in the day when we shared a cabin with our kids) I hung it on the outside of the bathroom door. The inside of the door has hooks for bathrobes and I'd rather have my bathrobe hung there.
The bathrooms really have enough space for toiletries, my hair stuff and makeup was used at the desk, so no need to store it in the bathroom. Medications, definitely not in the bathroom as there is so much steam in that room, I have a small first aid kit that goes into the desk as well.
What we used it for was #1 shoes #2 sunglasses #3 loose papers #4 seapass cards #5 odds and ends that wound up lost all over the cabin.
Once our kids were old enough for us to get them a cabin next door or across the hall, I pitched the over the door shoe holder. It was just another "thing" that took up space and weight in the suitcase and really isn't needed for only 2 people.
3 women, yes I can definitely see the need then.
We now have a desktop travel tray to hold all the little bits and pieces http://www.magellans.com/store/Other...__ComfortLP457 We leave all our change, seapass cards, sunglasses, etc... in it and it packs flat, snaps to make a tray. The best travel accessory I've ever purchased.

Admittedly, only two of us share a cabin, but we have always found that there was plenty of storage in which to keep things organized.
Since they are so cheap at WalMart, and they never pack up as neatly as they came, I leave the empty when we leave, and let my room steward know it's his if he wants it. They always seem to, as their quarters are very cramped.
