Recycle and make your organizing simple
"Good Housekeeping" (6/10) suggests some great ideas for recycling readily available items in your home while organizing your life! Here are a few:
* Use paper-towel cardboard rolls to keep extension cords, holiday lights and garlands from getting tangled...just wrap around them and voila...!
* Old belts can manage rolls of duct tape, masking tape, etc...slip the rolls on the belt, buckle it and hang it near other fix-it items!
* Use cardboard wine caddies from grocery stores to hold utensils, napkins and/or condiments for dining on the patio or on a picnic...you can use contact paper to give them a nicer look too!
