Where Are Your Scissors?

Well, folks, today was supposed to be the Peach Butterscotch Scones recipe, but since that one sneaked by me a little early, today I’m going to give you a killer quick organizing tip for you scissors.

Do you know where your scissors are?

If you have kids in school, this is a do or die question.

We always know where ours are, and here’s why:

These pair hang on the inside of my craft cabinet doors.

I probably don’t have to tell you that the number of scissors on hand should always equal or exceed the number of kids in any household!

A little 3-M Command Hook on the back of a cabinet door can make all the difference!

This tip won’t even take you 5 minutes to implement. If you’ve never used Command Hooks before, here are the keys to success:

  • Prep the target area by cleaning it with an alcohol pad, and let dry for about 2 minutes.
  • Press the adhesive and the hook on the target area, according to the package directions.
  • For best results, give it about 10 minutes before you hang anything on the hook. Scissors are light, so you can hang them right away, but I usually wait a couple of minutes.
  • If you ever need to remove the hook, follow the package directions and slowly pull the adhesive strip down, not out, and you’ll have no damage to your walls or cabinets, even if it’s years later.

I even use this trick for the adult scissors, which hang on the inside of my lazy-Suzann. That way, they don’t take up (or hide in) a drawer.

      Yes indeed! I love this sweet but low-cal treat. I go out of my way to pick it up at Sur La Table. Did not know until this week to get it online at UrbanAccents.com.
