The kitchen is the heart of your home so don’t allow it to be buried in clutter. I made a video to share some tips on how I keep my kitchen organized. A must watch for every mom and homemaker!
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!
For your family’s health, you should regularly clean and disinfect your plastic or wooden chopping boards. Especially because these can be easily stained by various food.
To get your chopping boards looking like new again, give them a once a month spa treatment. I’d like to share something that works for me.
All I need are lemons and salt. Calamansi works, too!
Here’s what I do:
1. Sprinkle salt on the chopping board.
2. Using lemon, squeeze the juice and scrub the surface of the chopping board.
3. Leave for 20 minutes, and then scrape away the grey dirty liquid.
4. Rinse the chopping board with a clean sponge.
The acid of the lemon works on the tough food stains while the salt helps exfoliate the surface.
