I'm trying to organize my pattern collection. This few years I had collected some patterns such us barbie dresses, baby dresses, and crochet pattern. I used clear plastic document holder to put my patterns. All the patterns put up together using a binder.
Since I don't have to many threads, this is how I organized my threads collection. I put the threads in small boxes. I once tried to put the colour in order but it always mix again since I'm not the only one using it.
I also read about how to organized your sewing stuff in Household Management 101 on Facebook. I would like to share a little bit about how I organized my sewing kits.
In my house, most of us know how to used a sewing machine and able to used it for simple stuffs. We also know how hand sewing button and others. But I might be the one using more of this sewing kits. So I like my things to be organised. I used plastic portable shelves with three-drawers.
In top drawer, I put my scissors, measuring tape, chalk, fabric pencils, and pliers. Meanwhile in the middle drawer I put all threads, needles and seam ripper. And in the last drawer I put elastic band, ribbons, bias tape, button, velcro and lace.
I choose the portable shelves so I can move it where ever I like :)
Yesterday I read about how to solve a pile of shoes problem in Household Management 101 on Facebook. It makes me want to share how to solve the same problem in my home. There are 10 people who lived in my home. One is baby so she has no shoes at the moment and one is babysitter (she only have 1 pair of shoes). So there are 8 of us that always put shoes near the front door. Sometimes it cause a pile of shoes by the door.
To solve the problem we make a shoe racks under the stairs. But we are to lazy to put it there. So we decided to put one shoe rack by the front door. So when we arrive we can put the shoes in it. Of course all of us have more than I pair. I even have more than six pairs. First of all we decided which shoes will be used frequently and which one is used less. The shoes used frequently will have space at the shoe rack by the door and the rest will be put in the shoe rack under the stairs. Besides shoes, we also spare some space to put shoes equipments such cleaning rags, shoe polish and other stuffs.
We design unused space on the top of the shoe rack to put our bicycle helmets.
Hope it can help to give an idea to solve the problem.
Today I clean up about 30 jam jars. It will used as a glass tomorrow when my college friends and I get together for taking pictures in my campus. This is one way I can think of to avoid using plastic cup.
I soak the bottles and caps whole night with dish soap in big bucket to release all the stickers/labels. And then I wash it today. I collect this bottles for about 10 years. Usually I used it for spices and keep other things in refrigerator such as simple sugar syrup.
One way to keep this world green or at least I'm not feeling guilty because of using plastic cups :)
Since we don't have any kitchen assistant anymore, my sister and I have to back to the kitchen to prepare foods. So we decided to clean up the kitchen to fit to our need.
One of things I do is labelling the spices jars. I design the label, print it on sticker paper and put it to the jars. Now everybody knows which spices they need. For the spices jars I used clean jam jars. I choose the same size & shape jars and the same lids except for sugar and salt jars. Mmmmhhh...It seems a little bit OCD, but I love to see it :) I also put clean 5 ml medicine spoons to spices that usually use teaspoon as measurement such as fennel seeds, coriander seeds, salt and others.
Did you know what you can do with your empty candy container? I am using it to put my safety pins and straight pins. I used the red and white one for bring plenty of safety pins and straight pins if I have wedding party. Sometimes I need plenty of pins to put up my hijab and others. Meanwhile the small white canister I used to put some safety pins and straight pins for daily use and I put it with my makeup case. So don't threw out your candy container.
Do you ever wonder what you can do with this spoons after you done consume the medicine? Well...let me share one thing you can do with the spoons. You can used it as measurement spoon. This spoon equal to tea spoon in all the recipes. Wash it clean and put this spoon inside your salt container or sugar container or other spices containers and make your life easier :)
When I start my granny square project, I have problem with tangled up yarns. So I think of something to solve the problem. At first I used a straw and cut it into 1 cm long and attach it to the box with sellotape and pass the yarn through it. But it didn't work properly. The sellotape not be able to hold the short straw in place. After some thinking I decided to use some wire. I make a loop and attach it to box (between cardboard and outside wrapping and pass the yarn through it. I make some more loops and it work wonderfully. And now I'm happy doing my project :)
