Cereal box covered in scrapbook paper with magnets on the side of the fridge. Great place to put the mail pile or menus. Or school papers to sign. (I would just glue magnets to the back of the box, it would look better.
Sheets stored in their own pillow cases. I started doing this about 10 years ago & it's so nice to go in & grab one pillow case! I know that all the pillow cases & sheets are all together. No more hunting for the entire sets!
