Smart sponge storage

Okay, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things and get back on track with eating well and moving on from this past weekend. To help get me back in line and feel less like I want to claw my stomach to death, Nate and I went to the grocery store to do a mini shop for me. We got a lot of snack type things, because I have been battling with these awful hunger pangs. Not fun. I'm hoping this will help out a lot.

Not only am I trying to make my life easier, but I have been trying to make life around the house easier...or better yet, more organized.

A recent baby project was in the kitchen. While we don't have a tiny kitchen, it's also not huge. We have to have some appliances on our counters, so when I can take one more thing off the counter to gain more space, I'm all for it. A few weeks back I posted about IKEA items I was drooling over. One of those things was the ASKER container. On one of our last trips to IKEA we grabbed a few of them in both sizes. I'm saving the smaller sizes to use in our bathroom for my make-up brushes and on our chalkboard wall (I'll post about those later).

I used the larger one for a space in between our windows over our sink. The larger ASKER has a hole in the bottom, which makes it perfect for hold something that needs to drain. Yep, that's right, I used it for holding our sponge and sink stoppers!



I works perfectly and of course...clears up a little more space on the counter.

I must admit, I'm addicted to these. I kinda want to use them everywhere. If I use one on the chalkboard wall, I'm thinking about painting it in chalkboard paint to blend into the wall. Oh the decisions.

Seriously, if you need storage, think about using your walls and these little guys!

What I used:

ASKER in 6" size - $8
VIPPA hook (4 pack) - $4
