I don’t know if it’s the warmish winter we’re having or what, but my thoughts have been on cleaning and organizing this week, which explains why today’s two-fer offers two cool organizing tips:
If you’re in need of an out-of-the way space to store wrapping paper, consider the ceiling area of a closet:
frankfarm says: “I had some wasted ceiling space in a closet as well as a need to organize wrapping paper, so I put together this storage solution. It’s only 4 anchors and screws and some galvanized wire. Before this, I had tried 3M decorating clips and thread, but it wasn’t strong enough to hold this much weight.” I say: “Brilliant!”
If you’re tired of trying to figure out the source of all those computer or audio/video cords, Apartment Therapy suggests using bread tags to mark them:
My cords are currently a mess (by currently, I mean since last September when I got my new computer), and I like this idea. Unfortunately, I eat a loaf of bread about every 3 weeks, so it will be a while before I have enough tags to mark all my wires. Still, it’s a good idea!
