Take Out Menu Organization!

I Love cooking, but sometimes the answer to what's for dinner is take-out!
We have a small collection of take out menu's, mostly things like sushi, pizza and a restaurant with really good Curry!
Thanks to Martha (or more specifically her new organization line at Staples) I have a way better way to organize them.

I bought one of the small plastic pockets! We hung it in the pantry cupboard!



It's awesome! So awesome that we ordered pizza for dinner last night! ;)
I'm headed back to Staples tomorrow to pick up another one . . . for the laundry room.
I also picked up some Kraft Paper Labels, the spice rack is going to get a serious spruce up!

Anyone else picked up anything from Martha's New Line???

  5. Ruh roh - I have a problem with office supplies! They beg to be placed in my cart and brought home ;)

    Please post pics of what you do with the kraft labels and spices - I'm intrigued since that's a "hot spot" in my kitchen. Thanks!

  6. I love how you post things on the inside of your cupboards! Helps eliminate that annoying junk drawer!

    If you need any tips for spices I recently reorganized mine using small mason jars! Feel free to check it out here - http://www.pinkhsc.com/2012/01/spices-mason-jars-love.html

  7. I did pick up some Martha stuff!!! I got the chalkboard labels to label my kids' toy bins and I got the white hanging file holder (to hold all of the papers my kids bring home from school or the mail -- instead of the counter 'holding' it!!!) and i got the little round tags with the metal to label little baking gifts for me friends! (or possibly name tags on kid birthday treat bags -- we do have a birthday coming up, so I am considering that)!
    Can't wait to see what you do in yoyur laundry room and with your spices!!
    I want a Martha Steward binder next -- just waiting on that though1!!!

  8. Oh my goodness. Lightbulb moment for me. I have been trying to figure our a good solution for these, I was going to put them all in a binder, right now I just have them stacked on the side of the plates in our cabinet. You may have just made my life a little bit easier, this seems perfect! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I so need to go check out her line! We keep ours in a binder, just slip them into plastic sleeves. I keep the coupons for the restaurants in a sleeve right behind the menu so we don't forget to use them. Can't wait to see what you are using the pocket for in the laundry room. Our laundry is on my list of to dos!

  18. Obsessed with her new line. I'm glad they have it for you in Canada :) I have a few of the hanging pockets (in that sea blue) that I keep in our kitchen for in/out mail.

  21. What a great idea! My husband used adhesive to apply a custom-cut piece of galvanized metal inside two of my cabinet doors. I post things up with cute little magnets. It's very convenient.

  22. ooo I like! I think I may just have to do this!

  23. I have the same dark cupboards in my kitchen and I love this idea but I'm worried the tape/sticky part may damage the cupboards when I take it down - any thoughts on that?

    Thanks!
