Re-purposing Magazine Files

A magazine file is one of my favorite organizing tools. You can use it for more than just printed materials or office folders.  Here are some uses I found for it.

A magazine file makes a good can food keeper or dispenser just like what I did here!

It is also a great place to keep kitchen items like foil, wax paper, plastic wraps and the like.

If you attach this to the back of one of your kitchen cabinets, just imagine how much drawer space you can save!

I found someone who did the same thing but used it for her blow dryer instead. Such a space saver!

Christmas is just around the corner. A magazine file makes a great container for a gift basket. Here’s a sample of what I prepared.

My favorite use for a magazine file is for my shoes. I was able to fit 8 pairs of shoes in this one and was able to save a ton of space inside my shoe closet because of it.

You can use it for flip flops, too!

Let me know if you find other ways to re-purpose a magazine file.  Until next time, stay OCfied!

Bread Clip Life Hacks

Bread clips, those little plastic devices used to seal sliced bread bags, have a lot of uses so don’t throw them away!

First, I use it as a tape holder.  Do this and you never have to spend more than a second looking for where your tape ends ever again!

Next, I use it as a book marker.

I sometimes clip it on the side of my book just right by the last paragraph I read.  This makes it easier for me to continue exactly where I left off.

I also use bread clips as a key tags.

These are also great earphones keepers.

Finally, bread clips are great flip flop fixers!

So keep those bread clips and give them an afterlife with any of these tips! Stay OCfied!
