Inside your cupboards.

I saw these both on Martha today. This one reminds me a lot of the clipboards over a desk I posted a while ago, but without the board. It is just the clips. But I don't really have an office or anyplace that I could have the clips out like that.

And this one is for the inside of your medicine cabinet. You have a sheet of galvanized steel cut to the size of the back and door of your cabinets. Again, neat idea, but not something I would want in my bathroom.

But then I got to thinking. I have a spot in my kitchen, the counter space next to my fridge, that is the dumping ground for mail and school work and all things paper. I have tried to find a different place for it, but it is what works. But I don't like the way it looks and not everything can be filled away the day I get it. I just am not that on top of things.
So I was thinking I could use these ideas inside my kitchen cabinets. Especially the one above that space. And when I open that cabinet (that only holds paper goods and Ziploc bags anyways) I could have a sheet of galvanized steel that I could hang things up on or a clip that I could use to hold papers that needed to be dealt with. I am going to have to give this a shot!!

I'm totally a basket girl. There are baskets everywhere in my house. I figure if it's a pile of paper in a basket it doesn't look quite so cluttery!

blueviolet, I will if I do it. I actually found an idea that I am going to try first! I will be posting about it soon!

Very cute! I actually made a shelf using clipboard clips that I used to hang up scrapbook layouts in my former scraproom. It was in a magazine and was very inexpensive to make.

I love cheap-yet-chic stuff which is why I like your blog, you always come up with cool projects.

I LOVE organization stuff. My craft room is filled with cute containers. But the containers have been emptied and the stuff that is meant to be organized is strewn about on several different tables. I dunno what my deal is. But I won't give up! I want my cupboards to look like Martha's!

I love tips on organizing. I'm not as organized as I would like to be, but I like to think that I could be if and WHEN I have the time! ☺

Just wanted you to know that I stop by and read all the time, even if I don't leave a comment. Thanks for always putting a spotlight on great Marth tips!
