Hats and caps out of control? Try this simple tip to keep them organized

Are hats and caps out of control and all over the place in your RV? Perhaps you have some in your closet, some in a cupboard, and some thrown about on your favorite recliner. Ours were. I’d open a cabinet and they would all fall out.

To fix my falling-all-over-me hat problem, I installed my ever-favorite Command utility hooks in a cabinet and now they hang neatly, don’t fall out when I open the door and best yet – I return them to their place on a hook when I return to the RV.

For the larger, floppy, wide-brim sun hats, I have a hook to put those on too. They just don’t fit in the cabinet.

Having a place, and a limited place at that, keeps me from adding more caps or hats without discarding one. One in and one out. Easy to say but hard to do!

I’m planning my travel-trailer ownership and have an immense Trello board for it. There’s an ongoing list of things not to forget — they’re generally small detail type things. I just added Command hooks to that list, and would not have even thought of it, were it not for this article. So thanks!

Command hooks to the rescue! We also use them throughout our RV; thank you!

Hi, Gary. I assume you’re referring to the descriptive title? What should we have called it so you wouldn’t be so judgmental about it, i.e., so it doesn’t come across as “clickbait”? Thank you. 🙂 –Diane at

It is an article with no real information. Who hasn’t thought of hanging hats on hooks? You get clicks for your advertisers. Many of your short articles don’t have to be a separate “click here”. Just post the article. Sorry, but I just get tired of having to “click” on everything to read it.
It’s your newsletter, you can do it however you want. Just my $.02. Thanks.

Thank you for your reply and explanation, Gary. I get it. I just do the proofing, so don’t have much say in the matter as to what is written or how it goes into the newsletter. I will bring your comment to the attention of those in charge, however. Have a good night and a very Merry Christmas. 🙂 –Diane at

Floppy hats I just roll up and stash with my clothes, I do not wear gimme hats if I can help it.
I prefer to wear my Stetson’s, and store them in a plastic hat box when not being worn.
