Super Cheap Idea for organizing your cabinets. And basically your WHOLE LIFE!

Started by Shannon , author of Milk and Cuddles 5/2/2011 12:00:10 AM

I was always trying to organize my cupboards, only to forget where things fit best, just days later. Within weeks all my hard work would totally disintegrate. But then I discovered a super thrifty design solution!!

Using Chalk board contact paper to label! The genius is that when what you need to store changes... you just erase it! Have grocery lists all over your fridge? I did. Use chalkboard contact paper to make a list hidden in a cupboard!

There are truly a million uses for chalkboard contact paper! Label peoples wine glasses at a party!

Label flour & sugar canisters! And be able to change any of the labels with just a wipe of a chalkboard!

The bottom line is that Chalk board contact paper is  a thrifty, flexible and CUTE design solution!

I love this idea. I don't have a quick tip nearly as cool as this. However, we have always had problems keeping all of our scarves, winter hats, and gloves organized in the coat closet by the front door. Finally I got one of those fabric over the door shoe organizer that has 24 pockets. It works great! Everyone can see what's there and it is so easy for my little ones to put their things away.

Nicole- I have never found it at my Walmart or Target either. Only found it in Teacher supply stores online, or amazon.com. I usually order it directly through amazon here below... hope that helps:)

I must have this paper.  I have the chalkboard paint.  I painted my entire basement door, located in my kitchen, and now it where all lists, notes and reminders go.   I do like the idea of being able to cut out different shapes with the paper though.

 

Awesome tip.

I don't have a quick tip but I like the chalk board idea! I have tons of notes written down all over myhouse of what I need, diapers, formula, food, etc. so I need to be better organized.

I love this! How creative. Now I have to go out and buy some chalk board contact paper. I use magnetic sheet paper. It comes in a roll and you can cut as much as you need. Some things I've used it for is to make biz cards for my son's lawn business. We created a card in a word document and then put it on the magnetic strip so he could hand them out as a refrigerator magent to his customers. My daughter and I make jsut some fun magnets to put on our chalk board and fridge.

Thanks so much Christy! It is so convenient to have it accessible but not out in the open!
