Every night I would go to bed and think, "...tomorrow... I'll do it tomorrow..."
The problem is that it isn't just paperwork... there are so many little items that don't necessarily have a place to go. As a result, they become part of the flotsam and jetsam of the household tide.
A business card will travel from the dresser to the kitchen to the dresser to a pocket to the dresser again...
(Yes, I forgot to take a true before picture.)
These were a grass green color and had a basket weave design on the fronts with tea, coffee and sugar etched into them. I painted them a light apple green.
Not wanting my Crap-canisters to say things like sugar on the front, I decided to break out the Mod Podge and make sort of a triptych across the front with a bird on a branch.
Oh yeah... in leopard print.
I turned a sheet of scrapbook paper over and sketched out a branch that would line up across the canisters and cover their existing labels. I cut out a bird as well.
I lined up the design across the 3 canisters and cut it into thirds where necessary.
Also? You can't see the eleventy billion receipts I have to enter into Quicken...
If I need to know where I can find a loose stick of gum, a bobby pin, a broken necklace or a watch with a dead battery, I know exactly where to find them.
I will sleep well tonight!
