Cookie Cutters - Organized
A box full of cookie cutters can be fun to rustle through... but annoying if you are in a hurry and looking for a specific cutter and are forced to pick up each cutter until you find the one you want. So, one afternoon, I decided to organize the box of cutters. Dumping the box, I grouped them into certain categories, depending on how I use them, specific holidays, animals, teacups, fairies, etc. With two sizes of Ziploc baggies, I labeled the appropriate bag and placed the categorized cutters in either large or small bags, letting the cutters rest flat. With the exception of a few categories, Christmas for example, most of the bags can be placed flat and I can see at a glance what is in the bag. The Christmas bag has the largest collection, but now they are all in one bag. I no longer need to toss aside teacups or fall leaves to find the holiday assortment. I simply grab the labeled Ziploc bag, and leave all the other cutters in the box. It's a system that works for me. Finally.
