What a Way to Recycle!
I was desperately in need of some storage solutions, but couldn't find anything to suit my needs in the stores (that I was willing to pay for, anyway), so I started looking around my house to see what I had on hand that I could use. I am sick of trying to get a drill or other hand tool and having to dig through tangled electrical cords, often having to move one to get to another. Also, I hate leaving my
I gathered the materials that I wanted to use, then went to work.
I marked where the duct tape reached on the roll, then cut about 1/4" smaller so that tape could be turned in on edges. Then I cut the paper towel roll to fit the tape.
Next, I rolled the tape around the cardboard, cut it and taped the ends over the edges. One storage solution done!
Using a wire lid holder that I had on hand, I grouped my corded drills and staple guns and glue gun and used the wrapped paper towel rolls to gather up the cords. The I placed them in the slots for the lids.
Now to tackle the mess in my refrigerator! I measured the boxes to make sure that they would hold the bottles securely, even if they weren't full. Then I took some decorative floral sticky backed paper and cut it to the size of the inside of the boxes. I lined them with the paper strictly for the look, and then placed them in the fridge to hold up the water bottles. I ended up using three separate boxes because they can hold differing amounts of bottles securely.
Once I had the boxes lined, I filled them with water bottles. I love it, because now I can rearrange the bottles and space as needed, rather than having a huge case of water taking up all the premium space in my fridge. Best of all, these ended up not costing me anything extra, because I recycled the materials! Don't worry, I recycle the bottles, too!
