The Home Depot, Lowes, Williams Sonoma and Ikea (cheapest place I know of) all sell them.  They are actually not adhevise, there are two pieces.  The first piece (mount) you screw into the wall and then the actual strip of metal either slides or snaps onto the first piece.  I use them for my knives instead of a knife block and put the in a cabinet so they are up and out of the way.  If you choose to do that just remember when taking the knife off pull up at an angled motion towards the top of the knife, not the blade (where you actually cut) it will damage the blade.

Where do you find those magnetic strips?  It looks like they are adhesive on one side.  Do they have a name?

Love the clear egg carton idea... genius!

I have been using clear plastic egg cartons with the lids cut off for my earrings.  When they get dusty, don't bother to wash, just replace---FREE.

I use a shoe organizer (like the one in your hack #8) on the back of our pantry door, and store sports bottles and sippy cups in it. Each pouch is big enough for a water bottle and its lid. No more hunting for the right lid!
