File holders - not just for files anymore

Use file folders to get a few things under control

Room 1: The Kitchen

You’ve already alphabetized the canned goods, anyways.
1. Apply adhesive stickers to all three corners of the file holder and stick it to the inside door of the cabinet under the sink.
Use this to hold onto cleaning supplies or kitchen tools you use frequently

2. Use clear or wire file holders to house veggies that will otherwise run away from you.

Better than keeping them in those awful crinkly bags you buy them in. This concept helps maximize shelf space by vertically stacking food that would otherwise just roll around and get squished.

3. Stack file folders sideways for added shelf space in the fridge and/or freezer.

Noticed how wonderfully categorized this freezer is with the frozen fruit is separated from the meat and leftovers.

Room 2: The Living Room

1. Turn a wooden file holder into a shelf by drilling it sideways into a corner wall.

Use your new makeshift shelves for magazines, remote controls, extra blankets, or knick knacks if you’re tight on space and want some custom storage space.

Fri 23rd Dec, 2016 was...Festivus!

Everyone likes to enjoy the holidays in their own special ways, but one holiday stands out more than the rest. Festivus, a holiday that seems as a joke but in all reality is a popular holiday growing through the masses in the United States. Let’s dig deeper into the past to find the origins of this plain, yet popular holiday.o enjoy the holidays in their own special ways, but one holiday stands out more than the rest. Festivus, a holiday that seems as a joke but in all reality is a popular holiday growing through the masses in the United States. Let’s dig deeper into the past to find the origins of this plain, yet popular holiday.

History of Festivus
Ironically, Festivus has a very odd and amusing start. It was conceived by author and editor Daniel O’Keefe and was celebrated as early back as 1966 by him and his family. But, how did Festivus become so popular if it was just a family tradition? To find that out, we must move forward in time to an episode of the famous television show Seinfeld. While the holiday is extremely popular among people today, the first time Festivus was mentioned in American culture was in the episode of Seinfeld called “The Strike”, but there’s more to the name of Festivus than just a referenced television episode, right? Indeed there is, because the word “festive” is derived from the Latin word “Festivus”. Sound familiar? It should. Festivus is an adjective meaning “excellent, jovial, and lively” which in turn derives from Festus, which means “joyous; holiday; feast day”. Plus, it brings one to think, maybe Festivus is to prove that we as humans don’t need material objects to be happy on a holiday, but all we really need is excellent company, jovial attitudes, and lively music to make the holidays the best we could have.
