For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Work for me Wednesday


If you are like me and subscribe to magazines, or just get them, you must have faced the challenge of keeping them neat and organized. Well, a few days ago, I came across a great recycling idea that helps in taking care of that problem.


We all know about the concept of repurposing (my son is really good at that with all his crafts). Well, this project goes right along these lines.


Reuse these nice cereal boxes, or wholesale cracker boxes into magazine holders. Works great and works for me. This is what I did today. Made 4 of them. I think they need some decorating but they work. No more loose magazines hanging around, and they are all sorted by titles; one for my Canadian Living, Homemakers (which subscription I stopped), one for my Today's Parent and one for the other odd ones that i get from different places.







The idea came from this site.

Have a great day,
