I love to keep a set of tools in the kitchen so I don’t have to go out to the garage every time I need to fix something small in the house.
When we moved, I didn’t have anywhere to put my magnetic knife holder. I hated to just get rid of it because I paid $10 and it seems so useful.
Well, I found another use for it! I hung it on the wall in my mini-pantry above the microwave and put my tools on it!
Wow, the magnetic tool holder works so wonderfully that I wish I could buy several more for the garage!
I also keep a razor blade on my tool organizer. A razor blade is one of the most useful tools I have! I use it to scrape anything that is stuck on, to open packages, and to clean really small crevices.
I on the other hand, hate razor blades. It seems like you can get cut on them so easily and when they are laid down they are hard to pick up. I know it sounds more dangerous but I like to use a scalpel. You do have to be careful with scalpels, too. A scalpel has a nice handle and the cutting area is not as large as it is on a razor blade.
You can now get plastic razor blade holders at most hardware stores which are designed for you to insert a razor blade into and reduce the danger when you use it.
Be careful when using anything with a blade, especially if you have children. Don’t just leave razor blades or scalpels laying around, not even for a moment.
You can also use a knife holder in the sewing room to hold your sewing tools or you can place a magnetic strip on the inside of your medicine cabinet to hold things like tweezers, razor blades and needles…
