I’m a mom of 3, a veteran and military spouse. I’ve moved into 20+ homes all around the world. My passion is helping busy people make the space and time for what’s really important to them.
I’ve been cleaning out and getting ready for the impending move (cue ominous music). I often struggle between wanting to get rid of everything and not wanting to get rid of anything. It happened recently with a starting-to-rust old cheese grater. I have other newer non-rusty cheese graters. Why would I feel an urge to keep a cheese grater?!
Well, rather than worrying about why, I decided to look for a way to repurpose it. With myself and 2 teenage daughters, we have a lot of jewelry… a lot. What came to mind first was to repurpose the grater to hold earrings.
Uh, how easy was this?
So, then the blogger kicked in and I figured I should invest no money (just used decorative paper I already had and some Mod Podge, but you could even use double stick tape) and about 2 minutes time to really dress it up.
So, for no cost and 2 minutes, I now have a functional earring holder. I think it would be fun to hang 5-6 graters randomly and use them all as jewelry holders. But that will be for another day…after the move.
