 How To: Make a Sandwich Station from a Recycled Drawer

  3. I am a mother.

How does 2 help me with 1 even though I am 3? Easy. I made a Drawer Sandwich Station.  My DSS helps me prepare sandwiches for my kids for school in no time.  Everything I need is spread before me, ready to be used, and in less than a minute I am done.

New Use for Old Drawers: A Laundry Room Re-Vamp

We recently moved into a rental condo where, among a bazillion other rules, we can't paint our walls.  Which is unfortunate, because the last tennants "touched up" with flat paint over the existing eggshell finish.  It makes for an interesting pattern on the walls, but I digress.  Our drab laundry room not only was white beyond all sterile imagining, but it had zero shelving or storage.  The solution to our blah laundry room was found in a few castaways.
