There are so many uses for these drawers! https://morestorage.com/clear-shoe-drawer-set-of-p-282.html

From Closet to… Fridge?

It's easy to organize and fully access "stuff" with our clear drawers at https://morestorage.com/clear-shoe-drawer-set-of-p-282.html

This happy customer tidied up odds and ends in her fridge using our clear shoe drawers!

If you have a simply, sturdy, affordable fridge… it probably didn’t come with a lot of frills. We heard from one customer over the weekend that bought our Aberdeen stacking drawers and completely transformed her fridge just by adding two drawers! She says she keeps sandwich supplies in one, and kids snacks in the other – Bravo! for thinking outside the ‘box!’

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard from a happy customer who was using these products for something other than their limited original purpose: a glass artist several years ago sent us this picture of her bins being used to sort glass scraps:

“I love that the bins are completely clear and that they easily slide all the way in and out of the frame. It saves me valuable time to stay organized and to be able to easily move material back and forth from my work tables.”

The Microegg

Faster Than Drive-Through: A Perfect Egg Sandwich in Under a Minute

microegg

A perfectly poached egg in under a minute?! It seems too good to be true, but that’s what the Microegg offers. We’re not really ones for endorsing unitaskers, but this little silicone box is pretty neat.

Yes, the egg really will cook up in the microwave just the way you like it (the whites cooked through, the yolks runny in our case). Here’s how to create the perfect homemade breakfast sandwich in no time. Now, you really have no excuse to pick up drive-through for breakfast.

Cut an english muffin in half width-wise, or grab a few slices of your favorite bread then toast to your liking.

Meanwhile, coat the Microegg with cooking spray. Crack the egg inside the Microegg. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Close top securely and microwave for 25-60 seconds (depending on your microwave and how you like your egg cooked).

When your muffin or bread is toasted, slather about one tablespoon of salted butter on each side. Carefully open the top of the Microegg and slip the egg on top of the bottom half of the english muffin. Add a slice of cheese (or avocado) to the top, close, and enjoy!

Kitchen Scales

Any professional baker will tell you that for precise measurements you need a scale.

img4_wall-scale_16_319_i22m0id3

Not only are scales a more accurate way of measuring ingredients, you create less mess! Simply put your bowl on the scale and turn the readout to zero then add your first ingredient, zero out the scale then pour your next ingredient – and so on. With a scale you can get away with using nothing more than a bowl and one spoon.

A small kitchen scale is also great for measuring out your meals to help with portion control, weight loss, and healthy eating.

Kitchen scales mean better results when cooking, simple portion control, faster cooking, and less mess and cleanup!

Neatfold...can you say it’s a gift from heaven? Seriously….Ok, maybe a little exaggerating but this simple bracket does make folding sheets neat, easy and fast. Martha Stewart once wrote a whole article about folding fitted sheets. I kid you not. Obviously America has a real problem here. If she had the Neatfold she wouldn’t have had to do that. Honestly, a cabinet with crisp linens all lined up in tidy stacks is a joy to behold. Visually, it creates a sense of organization immediately. It won’t sort them into twin, full size, queen or king. Nor will it separate towels from bath mats. After all, you have to do SOMETHING to make this your dream closet. Add a few baskets for managing small toiletries and medical supplies and your new closet will become a fabulous asset rather than a daily nightmare.

The perfect laundry accessory

 

 

So what’s in a name?

Boots …such an unattractive and broad name for the part of our wardrobe that can either protect us in a monsoon or make us the sexiest gal at the party. Ankle or knee high, rubber, leather, vinyl, suede…(be still my heart)… riding, walking, sailing, gardening, construction, military…all still called boots but by any other name would conjure a better image.

So when we offer our Boot Shaper for storing said boots, you must consider that most of those boots don’t need (or could care less about) shaping. However, for those that flop on the floor like an exhausted mother at the end of her day and begging for a hand up, we have a solution making your closet neater and your boots more desirable than ever.

Watch your boots stand like soldiers awaiting orders, prepared for emergencies, locked and loaded for your next foray out. A simple squeeze of the shaper releases it from it’s captor, the boot. Included is a hanger which now ranks the best of your fine boots worthy of affiliating with your coats and jackets rather than being relegated to the floor with their lesser counterparts – the mukluks and galoshes which simply get kicked aroundBoot Shaper. And while fashion trends have convinced us that all boots are created equal and can be worn in any setting, we’re still squeamish about showing up at Sunday dinner with Saturday’s mud underfoot. All boots may be road worthy but some simply cry out for attention more than others. Far be it from us to ignore their pleas.

Back to School Organizers (for Theoretically Organized College Students)

As your superstars head off to the dormitories, we’d feel left out not to chime in ourselves with some Back to School 2¢.  So here below, we’ve got 5 products, some obvious, some not so obvious, that may give you the momentary hope that your freshmen will weather the wrinkled rigors and survive their year the orderly bedside caddyabandon that only an underclassman can ever pull off.

6 POCKET POLYESTER BEDSIDE STORAGE CADDY

Bedside storage space is practically nonexistent in those cramped little dormitories.  I mean, there isn’t exactly room for an nightstand with drawers and shelves – it’s usually elbow to elbow desks, laptops and smelly shoes.  So tuck a little serenity between the sheets so that your student can relax and study up on a wee bit of Cosmo before getting a good night’s rest!

HMP-03542-2_2BRIGHT LAUNDRY TOTE

Unless your “young adult” is an established laundry A-lister, chances are, you’re concerned about failing grades due to the noxious gases those clothes will be emitting by week 5 of classes.  We recommend not skimping in any way on products that might encourage your teen to spend a few timely minutes in the washroom.  Lightweight, durable, easy to carry and brightly colored, this tote will be an in-their face reminder that dirty duds and necessary suds await.

lg_H12001CLUTTERBUSTER VALET HINGE-IT

Do you remember where your wet towels dried in your dormitory days?  Properly sopping wet on your bed.  Most rooms don’t exactly come with generous portions of towel racks.  And if your student has long locks and extra towel needs?  Well.  We can pretty much guarantee that the space they may have been given is fairly insufficient.  Attaching to the top and bottom hinges of most standard doors, this hanging system offers 4 bars that transform unused space into 6′ of functional storage paradise. A perfect piece to travel with them year after year.  And then into their first apartment.  Maybe even their first home, years down the road.

ROLLING OFFICE CART

Standard issue college desks are… how can we say this nicely?? Not always ideal on usable storage space.  Especially as new dormitories move towards slimline, utilitarian units, you may be at a loss to help your nervous student find a place for pencils AND paperclips.  Help them maximize on limited space, keep track of important accessories, and start learning the importance of filing, all in one rolling swoop.

BRD-01350_500pxOVER THE DOOR IRONING BOARD

Even we admit to some disbelief here.

However.

On the off-chance they decide to look 100% presentable for that presentation? We think the chances of them deciding to go the extra mile may well be determined by how easy that ironing board is to access.  And hanging right there on the back of the door, access is undeniably easy.

So go forth our young Jedi’s.  May the Force of Organization be with you.

The Laundry Bag gets a Magnetic Facelift

Semper Paratus: Like a Scout, my Murphy Bed is Always Ready

Please excuse my short essay on all things Amazing Murphy Bed — I’m in love and just can’t seem to stop talking about it!

Have you ever apologized for your guest room when showing your holiday visitors where they’re going to sleep?  Have you ever been so embarrassed by your guest situation that you take the couch while your parents get your nice comfy bed?  

Lay your shame to REST and get a Murphy Bed!

Murphy Beds, or wall beds, are real, honest beds, so I never have to sacrifice the comfort of my visitors while maintaining a practical guest solution.  The Murphy Bed accommodates an actual, comfortable, fantastic mattress up to 11” thick, just like any normal bed.  So choose any mattress from any store just like you would choose a new one for yourself and treat your guests to hotel-worthy at the touch of your fingertips. 

No matter how large your home is, space is a premium for everyone.  When not in use, wall beds swing up and closed, completely out of the way of all the other activities such a space can be utilized for when guests are not around: leaving your office/play room/craft room/living room area free and uninhibited for actual living space.

Surprise Guests will always be in turn surprised by your amazing ability to create a place to stay in a real snap.  When you tell someone to come on over whenever they want, you will truly mean it.  Murphy beds are ALWAYS ready at a moment’s notice and that means so are you.  Because they’re out of the way, they’re not collecting dust or papers or off-season paraphernalia because it was the only other open space left in your house.  If you’re someone who struggles to keep your guest room ready, a Murphy Bed can be the ultimate life saver.  

And just THINK of all the comments your guests will be making behind your back!  You’ll be the talk of the town; envy is sure to ensue!  Let’s face it: Murphy Beds are COOL!  And now you will have one and they will want one.  So dress to impress but don’t worry about it over-much, your Murphy Bed takes all the hard work out of knocking your guests socks off.  If they’re not spending the night, they’ll wish they were!

Finally, it’s impossible not to smile when I pull those handles and my Murphy Bed magically appears; because every time I open my Murphy Bed, I’m imagining every Three Stooges Murphy Bed scene, and singing the Murphy Bed song in my head.  But What is O’Reilley Doin’ in the Murphy Bed?  We all need  more happiness in our lives, it’s impossible to overdose: less stress and more laughter, less preparation and more enjoyment of the spur-of-the moment.  

Life is short.  Enjoy more spontaneous moments by getting ever-ready for merriment and joy: you’ll always be ready for anything if you’ve got a Murphy Bed.  

Sending a Spice Rack into your Organization Battle


It’s always a source of incredible inspiration to us to see what alternative uses our customers can come up with after an installation. As clothes and accessories get shuffled, re-shuffled, organized, settled and re-settled into their most ideal location THEN arranged by color, shape, size preference and availability, creative re-uses begin to show themselves:

Pants racks become accessory racks, drawer organizers find their way into every nook and cranny, and perhaps something we’re MOST excited about these last few weeks: the spice rack makes its way into your closet’s organization battle for the WIN!

While it may seem like we’re giving these little shelves more credit than they’re due or reading into things too much, just take a moment to think about spice racks with us for a moment.  Now, usually, these are decorative shelves which hang in your kitchen.  As such, manufacturers have gone above and beyond to give them a little extra design attention to make sure you have lots of options and that they’re something you’ll be proud to add to your kitchen walls.  This is no less important as the spice rack maneuvers its way into your closet: the well-designed little shelves will never detract from your prized accessories. 

As for use, you could hardly find anything more ingenious to help put the finishing touches on your closet organization.  The first things that came to mind when imagining the ideal alternative contents were nail polishes and make-ups, but why stop there?  Belts and brooches could be organized on one shelf.  Use another row to organize clothing emergency repair items like clothes pins, clips, threads, needles and buttons via clear shot glasses or votive holders.

 Back to the ideal contents, we’re convinced that a spice rack is the secret ingredient in packing for college when room sharing is imminent.  What better way to maximize your tiny sink space in your cramped dorm room then by getting a slew of your daily toiletries up and off the counter?  Get those nail polishes, make-ups, lotions, cu-tips and other daily necessities organized for a quick start the morning after a long night of studying and it will never be a struggle to dress and impress on those important presentation days. The campus is yours.

In summary: the lean profile of the spice rack and the plethora of uses it provides may make it the prefect finishing touch your closet has been looking for.

Picnic in a Bag

I’m a spontaneous person. I like to go as the spirit moves me. One of my favorite things in summer is calling friends on the fly and heading out for casual picnic and a sunset view. In my trunk, I keep my Table in a Bag…a stow and go picnic table that is only 6″ in diameter when stored and sets up in seconds with no tools. I hit the prepared foods center of my local market, grab a few cold beverages and enjoy the no-fuss evening catching up and maybe playing a little Scrabble. At the end of warm weather, my table stores in my closet taking up no room at all..ready for the next season of warm evening get-togethers. I wish you a summer filled with impulsive gatherings with friends that make you laugh like mine do.
