I haven't found a utensil holder that fits my ideas so I'll have to keep looking for that. Perhaps a trip to the Container Store is in my future...wink, wink!
Another item checked off of my list was cleaning off the top of the refrigerator. It was getting a little wild up there...see:
Wild and crazy I tell you! We had toys, coupons, Home Depot projects, a Halloween plate (Hello, it's December!), an egg container for the fresh eggs we get each week from OSU (for $1...it's a great deal), and water bottles. MADNESS!
Here's the beautiful after. The plus of having a husband who is 6'4" is that he can wipe off the top of the fridge! I threw away a lot and relocated a lot...so nice. Check out Rondell's Mango Tango sauce all the way from one of our favorite spots in Destin, Florida...ahh Destin :)
I will show you one thing that I keep on top of my fridge that really works for us...my paper product bin.
It's holds all of our paper products, like plates, misc. napkins, plastic utensils and even a straw or two.
Some of the items are leftover from parties or Wendy's/McDonald's. We save them because you never know when you may just need that plastic fork to include in your child's lunch or realize that all of the knives are washing in the dishwasher and your son wants a peanut butter sandwich like right now.
I even save napkins from Chipotle or wherever and I use the bowls when I don't feel like washing another dish...does that happen to you?
Just a little something that works for us.
