Missing Sock?
Views: 868 | Average Rating:  1 | Rating Count: 2 | Comments: 0

When you are doing laundry, do you ever come up with a missing sock?  I sure have, so I keep a small basket handy in my cabinet above the washing machine.  If I have a lone sock when folding clean clothes, I check the basket for a match.  If it's not there, I put my sock in the basket for a future match.  My family knows to check the basket if they are missing a sock!  Works great!

Keep Your Project Materials Together

The brand of beer we drink is sold in a nice sized box (9"x10"x15") with handles on each side. When empty, it works great to keep project materials I'm working on all together.  Like the pictures I need to organize in the photo album, the recipes I'm gathering for a family cookbook, left over yarn and fabric from projects or the broken household items that need repair. Label the outside of the box for easy identification. Store the box in a closet until you have time to work on it again!

Keep a Charitable Donation Container

Keep a box, bag or basket handy in a storage area of your home to put items into whenever you find you no longer need them.  Make sure all family members know where it is located, so they can assist with organizing their own areas.  When the container is full, drop off at the organization of your choice.
