Once again, I utilized my girl Martha’s awesome Staples line to help me with a little project at home. You may remember this shelf of books from our media console:
Well, since April, it now looks like this:
Yeah…when I cleaned out our office closet, the textbooks and notebooks got sent out here…the rest of the shelves are full as well. This is what happens when you have two EMT/firefighters that live together (oh, and you can’t forget the 15 books from the Fireman’s military fire training). So, what I realized is that the last time that I went to look something up in an old notebook, I had to literally pull every one out to find the specific subject. Pain in the butt? Yes. Easy solution? Yes.
The next time I went to Staples, I picked up one of these packets. I then proceeded to pull out all the notebooks and figure out what the subjects were and labeled the tags…
And then I just tied them onto the notebooks, so that they face out and I can easily identify which is which!
It literally took me 3 minutes to do, and it is going to be so much easier now to find what I’m looking for! And since they’re so tiny, they aren’t very obvious!
Martha, I wish we were BFFs. Because then I’d get a discount on your entire Staples line :). Have you used these tags for anything? Seriously, so versatile! I’m already thinking up my next uses!!
