I enjoy simple projects. I also enjoy implementing solutions to daily problems in our home.
A few months ago I shared my “well thought out” organization process (slight sarcasm intended, but nonetheless problems existed.) In that post I mentioned a few of the problems that I face daily around the house. One of which was our measuring spoon drawer.
I’ve never liked keeping the measuring spoons on those rings that they come with because then you have to either wash the whole set when you use one or take them off and on the ring every time. Inevitably my drawer consisted of many incomplete sets and I would go digging to find the one I needed…
every. single. time.
Searching for the 1/8 teaspoon was the worst…it’s a tiny little bugger!
I’ve seen lots of inspiration on Pinterest when it comes to fixing this problem. Many of which involved hanging your measuring cups on the back of a cupboard door. Months ago I picked up some new (and complete!) sets of measuring spoons and cups (for just a few dollars) from Walmart to complete this project.
I’ve been stalling on this project because I thought that I needed some paint sticks to hang on the doors so that then I could put some screw hooks or nails up without having them ruin the doors. But that means making an extra trip to Home Depot and in this case, that wasn’t simple. So while picking up a few things at Target I grabbed some Command Hooks.
I came home, put away the groceries and in no time…the problem was solved!
The command hooks were very easy to install. I even had to rearrange a few to make sure that the door would shut but since the package comes with extra adhesive it was no problem. This option shouldn’t damage your cupboards, can easily be removed and the best part is…you can find the exact size measuring cup you need when you need it!
Now I just have to get used to the little jingle that now happens when I open up the cupboard door…I keep thinking that a dish is falling out. 🙂
How do you store measuring cups and spoons? Any other things around your house driving you nuts?
