You can pick them up at most convenience stores, which makes them easy to find. They come in Velcro and hook style and vary in mounting strength. Some can hold up to 20 pounds. And when it comes time to remove the strip and switch things up, all you need to do is peel the adhesive strip away. All that will be left is a damage free wall.
