Thrifty Fix: Clip It and Stick It
Clip it and stick it. . . to clip it and save it!
As part of my efforts to avoid the junk drawer that seems to inevitably sneak up on even the most meticulous of homemakers, I devised a quick and easy way to corral my coupons and save some precious space in the process.
I like my coupons near the kitchen, where I can grab them easily as I set out on a shopping expedition. Inspiration was born when I spied some fancy-schmancy adhesive file pockets at Target that adhere to your wall, desk, fridge, cabinet, or any other vertical surface. Then I spied the price tag. $9 for a pack of three? I think not.
Penny pincher that I am, I took a closer look for inspiration purposes, then motored home to create my own adhesive filing pockets. I crafted them out of decorative scrapbooking paper, smacked some double-sided tape to their backs, and tacked those suckers onto the inside of my kitchen cabinet doors to sort coupons.
And so, with a clip of the scissor and a stick of the tape, instant, free adhesive file pockets were born!
In a tiny rented kitchen like mine (with only ONE drawer!) it’s important to eek out every last inch of storage space without major construction efforts. I’m finding that the insides of kitchen cabinet doors are my sweet spot. What about you? Any other tips and tricks for making the most out of your kitchen real estate?
