organize your measuring tools - create a measuring arsenal
My husband wasn't happy with where I was storing our measuring tools. I wasn't happy either. With the inspiration of Infarrently Creative, I came up with a solution.
What you'll need:
Measuring tool hooks:
small wire 3M command hooks and adhesive strips
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (optional)
label maker and label tape
Cooking cheat sheet:
cooking cheat sheet
coordinating card stock
double stick tape
poster mounting squares
Mount the hooks:
Step 1: Determine where you'll hang your measuring tools; consider the clearance between the cabinet shelves. Measure and lightly mark a guide line for your hooks.
Step 2: Determine the hook spacing along the marked guide line; consider the width of your measuring tools. For my measuring cups, I spaced the hooks according to their widths. For the spoons, I used equal intervals. Measure and lightly mark where each hook will be placed.
Step 3: Use the Magic Eraser to wipe away the guidelines, leaving behind only the marks for each hook.
Step 4: Mount the hooks per the manufacturer's directions.
Step 5: Make a label for each of your measuring tool. I chose to use a label maker, because that was the easiest, yet still removable, way to label the hooks.
Step 6: Adhere the labels to the cabinet above the hooks. If you're super ocd like me, you can make guidelines for this part too.
Mount the cheat sheet:
Step 7: Download and print the cooking cheat sheet.
Step 8: Using the paper cutter, measure and trim the chart.
Step 9: Attach the chart to the cardstock using the double stick tape. Trim the cardstock
Step 10: Mount the chart to the cabinet door with the poster squares per the manufacturer's directions. I also measured and marked guidelines for this step.
Step 11: Admire your work!
