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.
