I have a cabinet in my house that attacked me last week.
I’m so not even kidding.
Like something out of a horror movie.
I opened the doors to get a plastic container for left-overs and two pitchers, four lids, a foil pan that used to cover a casserole and 47 tiny spice jars reached out and bit me.
Do you have a cabinet like that?
Because my cabinet needs friends.
So in the spirit of conquering our cabinets and showing the spice jars who is in charge here’s a few organizing tips and projects you can do in about 10 minutes.
1. Always, always, always stack your clocks next to your rolling pins
Seriously, why not use crates you find from the thrift store to make your cabinet much prettier.
Then add a personalized spoon handle to remember where you put those clocks.
2. Add a spoon to your cereal cabinet
And while you’re stamping, why not stamp a handle?
Just do what I say and not what I do and get distracted when you’re stamping and spell CERAEL.

3. Organize those thumbtacks
Have you ever noticed that a thumbtack is never around when you need one?
Kind of like a boyfriend in high school.
Add an upside down handle to your bulletin board and tuck the thumbtacks inside.
And make them wait at least a day when they ask you to prom.
4. Crate it up
This crate showed up on my doorstep to package some furniture.
I simply nailed it securely to the wall using anchors and added a license plate.
Oh….and books work well, too.
5. It’s time to organize
So sorry…..who can resist a time pun?
Glue them onto clothespins and clip to different file folders to organize your time.
