An organizing tip for your counter top organizer

By August 15, 2016Weekly Tip

This idea was sent to me (along with the pictures) and, quite frankly, I think it’s a pretty smart idea. If you use a counter top organizer for random items (pens, pencils, notepads, mail, etc) one handy item to keep in there is a pair of scissors. But how do you keep those scissors standing up straight when the items around it are constantly getting taken out and then put back in? Or, how do you keep the scissors from sliding down as soon as you put the them back in? Well, this clever lady put her scissors in an old glasses holder she had lying around and VOILA! No more digging for scissors at the bottom of the container!

I love this idea and I also love receiving ideas from you guys! If you have any organizing tips you use in your every day life please leave them in the comments below or email them to me ( I’ve received some great ones already like the post about bungee cords and this post about six pack holders. Let me know what works for you because I’m always on the hunt for great tips and tricks.

Also, in case you missed this announcement from several weeks ago, for every idea you send me you get 15% off future organizing or staging services. And that’s not limited to readers in Nashville. If you’re within a 60 mile radius, or you are in Mason County up in western Michigan, this applies to you as well! (Unfortunately at this time anything more than an hour away from Nashville is not possible for me).

So, leave a comment below with your favorite organizing tip and/or let me know what you think of this tip!
