Weekly Wrap: Put a Bow or a Label on It

I find that I'm much more likely to cook, as well as enjoy it, if I start with a well organized kitchen. Some neat things I saw recently that might be making an appearance in our kitchen soon.

The pages of my cookbooks have post-it notes peeking out from all angles. One thing I tend to forget to do is clean up after myself when I've finished with them. If left too long, the adhesive leaves a residue on the page. When I came across these paper clips, I knew I had a new way to mark recipes.

With some fabric scraps, Stiffen Stuff, and fabric glue, you'll have unique bookmarks in no time at all. Visit How About Orange for the tutorial.

One thing that drives my husband crazy is that he can never find anything. As we get new gadgets or small appliances, I re-tetris the kitchen cabinets, drawers, and countertops for maximum efficiency. Vinyl decals from Hommu, if repositionable, might make the kitchen more accessible. (I've moved our french press and water glasses two times so far since we moved into our apartment.)

The Finds: Coffee and glasses decals and Cutlery decals from Hommu spotted on At Home with Kim ValleeThe Splendiferous Array of Culinary Tools 18"x24" poster from Pop Chart Lab, $25, spotted on Design*Sponge.

Or I could get a copy of The Splendiferous Array of Culinary Tools from Pop Chart Lab and add a location code to each item we already have.

Then again, maybe I'm taking organization a little too far.
