Grocery List On A Roll

Grocery List On A Roll ~ Literally a Grocery List on a Roll made with everyday stuff ~ and the roll lasts forever ! #organizing #grocerylist

It was time for a proper Grocery List !

Because .... I am tired of scenes like the above pic !  The rule in our house is, when you finish an ingredient or any other thing which we run out of, is to leave the empty container {or in some cases, the almost finished product} on a specific counter.

I am "supposed" to check these every day, write it on my list for the day, or the week, and throw away the empties ... yeah, that's not happening most of the time.  I tend to SEE the containers, but choose to ignore them for as long as possible ---- and after a day or two, we have clutter - plain and simple!

So, finally I made something which should last a while {it is quite a long roll of cashier's slip!}

This is what I have used :
- A leftover laminated flooring plank of about 350mm high
- 2 Homemade Brackets with a cut-out in each for the plastic black roller shaft {already attached}
- A Flower embellishment and a small piece of ribbon  {width of the plank}
- Roll of cashier's paper
- Marker
- A Cutting strip - already attached - see below what we have used

A closer look - we used a double strip of .....

That's right !  The cutting strip thingy which is made of metal and found on baking paper boxes .. works perfectly {Roy's flashbulb moment of the day !}

And - in it's new spot where everyone hopefully would use the marker {on top of the paper roll} and write down whatever is finished instead of leaving the empty container. When ready for the stores, whoever goes, only need to tear off the written piece.

  7. I love this idea and love that you reused the teeth from the saran wrap. I use a white board on the fridge for my list and then take a picture with my phone. I really like this idea because you could easily write personal messages and hide them in lunches. Stopping by from 36th Ave.

  10. I love this idea!! When I saw the picture, I just had to stop by. It never fails that the one thing you really need isn't there when you need it...
    I linked over from the Homemade by You Party where I am participating too with Spooky Spider Card and would love it if you'd stop by.
    Hugs, Antonella :-)
