  • Bag-Drying Clips

    With the amount of buying from the commercial supply chain that we've been doing, I've been needing to divide up a lot of large containers. We typically use ziplock bags, and they're sturdy enough that they could be washed and reused. We mostly haven't been reusing them, though, because while I don't mind washing them they're a pain to dry. They're too flimsy to stay open by themselves, and if they get bumped shut they tend to stay shut.

    I decided to attach some clothespins to the underside of the shelf above our sink to hang drying bags from. It was pretty quick. First I separated some clothespins, and drilled a small hole in the center of the half that still had the metal spring attached:

    Then I screwed through it into the shelf above, making sure to use a screw short enough that it wouldn't poke through:

    Once it was snug, I slid the other half of the clothespin back on:

    Here are some bags drying:

    When I got my loft bed it was just so annoying every morning to have to get out of bed, climb down the ladder, turn the light on, and climb back up, just so I could see stuff. I decided to make a string for my light switch because I really wanted to be abl…
