So far, I've used about 5 of my oodles and oodles of Pinterest pins.
My pan lids now live under the cabinet in the corner, looking like little flying saucers. I have no idea where that pin went, but two cup hooks and your pan lids can hide under the upper cabinets, in easy reach of the stove, and not cluttering up the actual cabinet space. I managed to put 3 more casserole dishes in the most - accessible cabinet once I moved the lids out.
I started my celery end in water today, hoping I won't need to buy any more. I got that idea here: Grow celery from celery Now if I can only figure out what to do with the bit I have left before it goes bad.
I made my own cleaning calendar, but mostly it just tells me what chore I don't feel like doing today. At least it is a happy blue accent in the kitchen right now. Since I have one of those mythical better half / partners / statistically significant other / zombie apocalypse team leader type guys that really, honestly, helps around the house, I may need to take another crack at it and make something more along the lines of "this needs to be done in a given week" cross-off lists.
I tried that t-shirt folding trick, but this is how I already fold t-shirts, and the drawers in the dresser are not tall enough to accommodate this way of stacking them in the drawer. Which is a shame, really, as his t-shirts occupy 4 out of the 6 drawers. Nope, I don't actually use the dresser- I don't actually use "his" closet in the bedroom either. This house was built in 1956. While our closets are really spacious in 1956 terms, I have a lot of clothing. He has a lot of uniforms. And boots. Why the man needs that many pairs of boots, I can't fathom. Maybe we'll get closet systems for Christmas. Any of those would be really helpful. (HINT HINT HINT HINT! I'm looking at you Ma- you always ask what we want for Christmas, and I have yet to see a closet organizer gift card! I'm actually serious when I say that! I can't help that you raised a weird child.)
Speaking of bedrooms, my blankies are all nice and smelly-goody thanks to making my own Febreeze. One of the nest pins out there, in my (sort-of but not really) humble opinion.
Next task is finding proper-sized baskets to try this number. No, not that crazy shower curtain, the baskets!
