More Cluttered than Ever…

Well, around late August, early September, I fell off my “clutter free house” bandwagon.  It didn’t seem like much of a problem at the time.  The house (and all the storage spaces) were relatively uncluttered.  I’m not sure what happened over the past couple of months, but, oh do I have a problem!  My kitchen counter is full of stuff, my kitchen table is piled with old photos that I decided to go through and sort, now I need to find a place to store them, in some sort of order that I have them sorted.  My dining room has become my sewing room.  Needless to say there are little fabric and thread scraps all over the rug in there (I do try to pick them up ever couple of days), sewing maching on the table, notion boxes out (because the minute I put one away, I pull it back out looking for something)… I really need to get my “How to Conquor Clutter” book back out and re-read it, well, what I really need to do is get back on my de-clutter the house bandwagon, and work on these things a little bit every day.  I know in no time, the house will be back to being clutter-free.  🙂

Kitchen Refridgerator Picture Collage

Do you have pictures on your fridge held up my those unsightly advertizing magnets that are sent to you in the mail?

Well, I came up with this ingenious idea (all on my own – no I didn’t find it on Pinterest…)

These are the magnets that I have.

Some of them had those little calendars hanging from the bottom of the (which is actually where I came up with this idea).  I tore those old calendars, that I never even used anyway, off.

Then I took a long piece of clear tape.

Rolled it around my fingers to create a double-sided tape.

Placed the tape on the magnet and laid it out so that it was flat.

and attached the picture.

WA LA!

Pictures on my fridge without those ugly magnets.  Plus you can always tuck other pictures in behind the pictures on the magnets as well, and make a wonderful picture collage on your fridge.

Want to change pictures on your fridge?  No problem, the photos come off the tape easily without ruining the picture.
