So on one door I have the shoe compartment hanging over the door thingy. I wanted to get for another door (where it makes sense) to put a shelving system in.
Anyone know one that:
-No drilling needed (hooks over the top of the door is preferred)
- has shelves rather than bags or slots
- plastic, metal ok, I don't want cloth.
- cheap!

I want to.store things like windex, small containers of things... maybe tissue boxes?
The shelves in that closet dont go to the door so I should have some space to put this in.
Any ideas welcome, especially if they meet some or all of my wishlist!

I had one in the past. Bought at Walmart or amazon. let me try to find a link. I didn’t like it though. Could be it wasn’t secure enough to the wall- stuff was always falling.

Yeah, any experience with them? So hard to tell on amazon if it is decent quality or not...

There was an awesome one shown in the last episode of the Home Edit on Netflix, the episode with the 2 boys in a shared bedroom. I am still trying to find it!

I honestly don’t remember which one I had. The door it was on had kind of a frame/molding around it so the shelf was not flush to the wall & therefore stuff was always falling. I’m assuming that shouldn’t be an issue with a straight door. I guess the question is if things that will be stored on it can handle the door slamming? How busy is the closet it will live in?

Good point. It is a closet that doesnt used much. No slamming doors or constant use like a bedroom or bathroom. I have a small apartment and this is the catch all storage. But if I could get more space out of it I will use the closet more. But probably not crazy busy.

I can't speak for this specific product but something similar has been hanging on my closet door for somewhere between 35 and 40 years. I wouldn't try to store a boat anchor on it, but it can handle quart-size plastic shampoo bottles. What you need to be concerned about is the sturdiness of the door itself. My closet door is SOLID. I wouldn't try mounting this product on a lightweight hollow-core door, and if I were so foolish as to try, I'd store only the lightest of objects, like, maybe, boxes of tissues. If you can slam the door with a good solid crash, it's probably ok. If the door slams with a nebby thump, fuhgeddaboudit.

Ahh! We have the door hinges that slow it down so I cant tell! I so need help with organizing... due to work and other issues I like to shop in bulk. So I was hoping this could help me.store things...

If the door is so heavy that it needs a device to slow it down, it is not a lightweight hollow-core door and it should be fine with the extra weight. Still, I would avoid burdening it with really heavy stuff. the hinges are meant to support the door, not the door plus a carload of canned goods. You don't want the weight to pull the door, hinges and all, right out of the frame.

what about a shoe organizer? I know it's not plastic or metal but because it's pockets rather than shelves you don't need to worry about things falling off shelves if the door is opened or closed.
