Wire organizers are the best! They are incredibly inexpensive and can be some of the most versatile organizers.
For the Repurposed Item of the Week, I’ve chosen the Sorter and Organizer. This is, of course, great in a cabinet for holding trays, baking sheets and dishes. But how about mounted on a wall for holding files, large books or magazines? Or even mounted to the underside of a cabinet shelf for holding boxes of plastic wrap, baggies or aluminum foil?
What would you use it for??
I don't normally write a lot on my son, but this week I'm inspired, so what the heck! I bet that I am like a lot of moms at the end of the day. So, when school began this past fall, David would come home and his book bag, coat and shoes hit the floor by the front door and he goes running. I was a bit more understanding when he was in kindergarten, but now that he is a "big" first grader, this is just unacceptable.
So, I sat him down and had a heart to heart. Yes, he knew where his things belonged. Yes, he understands that his stuff on the floor looks bad and more importantly, it is dangerous where it ends up. Yes, he knows where his stool is to reach the bar… that is when he admitted the problem.

Yay Crunch Cans!
These little wonders are made from heavy canvas with a semi-rigid ring on top to help it stay open and keep its shape, and a durable PVC liner that can be easily cleaned with a damp rag. It's collapsible, so it stores easily and you can take it anywhere. And it's soft-sided, so it's perfect for kids rooms.
Take it to the lake or the beach to bring home wet, sandy towels and toys. Store kids toys in it - safe even for small children. Use it for shoes in an entryway, sports equipment in the garage, even trash in the office. For only $18.99, you could get a few!
How would you use one??
This stuff is fantastic!
Anything you want to keep from slipping - Grip-it Shelf Liner will do it.
I bought a roll, cut it into three inch wide strips and used a staple gun to attach it to the wood slats of my futon frame. Now my futon mattress doesn't slide down onto the floor!
You can use a strip to keep a table runner from slipping, or cut squares to fit under chair pads. You could even use it under a small rug!
Anyone else have any uses for it?
Every Friday, I'll hunt down a product from the Stacks and Stacks website and give you a brand new (or at least new to me!) purpose for it.
