Organizer on the cheap.

My version of the Clip it Up. :)  It's a drapery rod with round clip rings. Easy to find stuff in just about any store that sells curtains. I got mine at Big Lots on sale.
It's really helping me get organized. I really need about 2 more to get all my rub ons and stickers up and out of the boxes and binders. lol! Right now it's aa big ol mess but soon I'll have it all seperated by subject.

What a great idea! i have seen the round clip racks and don't have the table or counter space for them. Thanks for sharing the idea!

Love the idea. The only problem I'd have is that the hubby would see all that I have. That could be dangerous.

Ronnie said...

Your clip idea is awesome! I am always looking for better (and cheaper) ways to organize my supplies.

Bev said...

Love your clip idea! And the cake is amazing!!

Elizabeth said...

Thanks! THe total cost on the clip thing was about $20-$25. Not bad. Could be cheaper too if you buy a less expensive rod. :) I love finding ways to see my stuff. When it's all in binders I'm less likely to use it.

Kris said...

Nice clip it idea. I wish I had curtain rods! :)

Joy said...

Excellent idea! And I know you're not happy with the cake but it looks pretty darn good to me!

Brenda said...

What a great idea! I am trying to get more organized in 2009, so I may just have to steal your idea!

That's an awesome idea for storing stickers and rub-ons. I can't believe I haven't thought of that. And I bet it's a lot cheaper than the similar ones in the LSS.

very cool idea

Jennie said...

Hey, that is so much better than what I ever could make..... love the idea for organizing.... I need all the ideas I can get....

What a cute idea!! I currently have all mine seperated catagorically into expandable folders (I'm such a geek LOL). This would be great when working on a themed book instead of digging through the folder every time (thereby not using many because I forget to look in the folders Haha!)

Michelle said...

Great idea! It gives me thoughts of what do for my room! The cake looks delicious! I think I ganed 5 pounds just looking! LOL! TFS!

Great idea! I found 2 curtain rods on clearance at JoAnns for less than $3. I was going to use both for punches-but my stash sinot that build up yet, but now I can use it to hang some of the embellishments. Thanks for the idea.

I love that clip idea. Can I steal it???

Ann said...

Love that clip idea! I'm always looking for vertical storage (very limited countertop space). TFS! :D

Ok--off to the store in the morning, to get a curtain rod and some little clips. Awesome idea.

Sweet clip-it-up! Where did you find those clips? I envision one of these here in the metrohome to keep all those pesky mail piles at bay.

"piping gel transfer..." Aha! That's how you sneaky cake people do it! :D
