I had to oust the stack of spare ice cube trays to make room in the kitchen cabinet for my new juicer. To be honest I'm not sure why I held onto them since my refrigerator has an ice cube maker. Instead of recycling the trays I put them to good use in three rooms of the house:
In the bedroom for jewelry:
No more knotted necklaces and unmatched earrings. Use the cups in the ice cube tray to hold pairs of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and even watches.
In the craft area for supplies:
No more misplaced a spools of thread or photo corners. You'll have more time for crafting when you spend less time searching for the supplies.
In the office for the desk drawer:
No more searching for a paper clip or flash drive. Once you fill the tray with all those little office items what you need will always be right at your fingertips.
Do you have a lot to organize? Don't worry, the trays stack really well so fill 'em up and stack away.
