"You’re Welcome" Wednesday tip: Organize your ribbon

Welcome back to “You're Welcome” Wednesday, where I share a savings tip with you that's bound to make you say…THANKS!
If you are anything like me, you have lots of random ribbon laying around. I save ribbon off of gifts, I stock up on ribbon when it's on sale, and I got a surplus of it lately from the bow-making stations I did at the baby showers I threw.
I saw an idea like this on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try! Here's what I did:
I reused a bin that I already had lying around (though you can buy them for cheap…start at the Dollar Store!), and jimmy-rigged some skewers to fit through the ribbon.
Stronger wooden dowels would be MUCH MUCH better, but I don't have any on-hand at the moment. I  used packing tape and stacked two skewers together to make them stronger.
Once again, not the best, but a good temporary solution. 

Just feed it through your ribbon and there you go! They spin easily, you can see exactly what you have, and it keeps it all organized and clean.

Doesn't that feel nice?
The best part? Didn't cost me a dime! WOO HOO! Give it a try 🙂

  1. That’s a great idea. I definitely need to do something like this with all of the ribbon I have. I will be adding this to my “crafts to do list.” 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!

"You’re Welcome" Wednesday tip: Organize your fridge

Welcome back to “You're Welcome” Wednesday! I have a great tip for you today that is bound to make you say, “Thanks” 🙂
I found a great video that gives tips on how to organize your fridge so your food will last longer. Who knew it made such a difference?!

Here are the tips from the video:

  • Warm air rises, so the top of your fridge is warmest.
  • The shelf above the crisper drawers is coldest, so keep meat there or other things that need to be really cold.
  • Crisper drawers are best for fruits and veggies.
  • DO NOT keep dairy in the doors. Warm air hits there first, so don't keep eggs or milk there, butter is ok.
  • Keep eggs and milk in the back where cold air is most consistent
  • Keep leftovers all in one section so you don't forget about any.
  • Rotate your containers keeping the oldest ones in the front so you remember to eat them first.
Easy, and genius!

You're welcome 🙂
