So I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was frustrated with my labels from my label maker not staying stuck on my plastic bins. Here is what I mean (and this is after adding a piece of tape to it to try and make it stick):
Grrr. So annoying! If there is anything I’ve learned in the last couple of years is that small frustrations like these can be toxic if we consistently let it bother us without doing something about it. Luckily, for the most part, there is almost always a way to solve the problem. I knew there had to be a solution out there and you all had many suggestions to offer up. Thank you!
However as I sat here one night I happened to glance over at where I keep my stash of 3M Command products and saw one of their products I hadn’t put to use yet. Which product am I talking about?
These are designed to hold pictures but I thought, why not labels instead? So I tried it and it worked beautifully. I can easily snap in a new label (I just printed off cardstock labels on my printer) whenever I need too and they stay put!! You should have seen how excited I got about the whole thing. I was jumping up and down and all around. Seriously it takes so little to amuse me…ha! I also new it was the end of an annoying problem and I was not going to be irked no more. Take that you labels that don’t stick. Whoot!!
Let me show you some pictures:
Want a great way to organize your fridge? Add a basket or two to contain “like with like”. I was tired of my condiments all over the place. A beautiful basket to the rescue!
Of course the fact that I have an 11 year old son means the word condiments gets a giggle every time he sees it.
It’s one of those things where I wonder why I didn’t think of it sooner. It’s such a perfect non-permanent solution. I LOVE versatility in an organizing product!!
3M asked me to do a video for them of my experience (which was also very exciting as you can imagine) so I calmed myself right down and gave it a go. You can see that video clip by clicking below. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to embed it into my blog.
So there you have it. An inexpensive (you get 6 clips to a pack) organizing solution to a terribly annoying problem. Yay!!
3M provided me with a selection of products but the creativity? It’s all mine baby! :)
