With the Fridge Organised, it is time to move onto the second Organising Project on our list for July. In the bottom drawer in the kitchen I had a rapidly increasing pile of Take Out Menus! There is nothing like having a drawer full of back up plans when you don’t feel like cooking dinner! But the chaos! I had admired the Kikki-K Take Away Menu Organising Folder, but it was too big for my space. I wanted to be able to keep the menus in their current drawer but in a more organised fashion.
This week as a woman on a mission I searched everywhere for the right “container” for the job. Then at my local Big W I found this perfect folder.
This plastic expanding wallet with 13 sections and labels, was less than $3 in the Stationery section of Big W. It has an elastic band closure and tab tops for easy labelling. It is a DL Envelope size which is simply perfect for take out menus! PERFECT!
So armed with my bazillion menus and my trusty DYMO Labelmaker, I set to organising those babies!
The “wallet” came with little cardboard tabs, but I wanted labels! I used my DYMO to make a label for each section, stuck them to each cardboard tab and then slid them into each tabbed divider. I could have just labelled the plastic divider, but this way if I ever need to I can change the categroies around!
I also kept one category right at the very back for coupons. Unlike those lucky americans we dont get a lot of coupons but I do save the occasional “Shop-A-Docket” or Play Centre coupon. Got to love organising two things with one container! Of Course now the “Wallet” was begging for a pretty label.
I made up my own Tangerine Trellis labels using Word and printed it onto self adhesive paper. I attached them to the cover and spine.
