Condiment Packet Organizer

This is so super simple, but I still thought I was a genius!  We don’t eat out too often but when we do, we seem to accrue a plethora of soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, dressing, barbecue sauce, and taco sauce packets! Some of them get tossed, but I like to keep a few on hand as they come in super handy to put in school lunches! I tried several methods to store these mini-sized condiments, but they always ended up flying out of the fridge at me. That is, until sheer brilliance struck! Check this out! Yep, a cracker box! That is it! I cut it off at about 2 inches, filled with packets, and placed it in the closable compartment in my fridge door.  You can fancy it up with washi tape or duct tape.  But if you just want to get ‘er done, here ya go!

Party Silverware Organization

I am always looking for better ways of organizing my house, life, schedule; basically my entire life! One of the things we enjoy doing the most is sharing our home with our family and friends! We have people over often, and are always looking for something or someone we can celebrate just to enjoy our loved ones!  Sometimes we will simply celebrate a beautiful summer day or a fresh blanket of snow! One of the things we needed host our guests was a serviceware caddy, as the plates, napkins, and Solo cups holding the silverware took up too much space and the cups kept tipping over. I wanted to find a  compact and attractive solution. I was shopping at a local home goods store and found this super cute and potentially efficient kitchen caddy.  It is even portable! The problem? The dividers were only a wire at the top and open the rest of the way down! The plates and napkins fit beautifully in the back, but the “divided” front was a mess!  My solution was to recycle some orange juice containers and spruce them up with some fun duct tape to keep our silverware in order in an attractive way!

THE MESS!!!!
