For years we have had a magnetic strip from IKEA in our kitchen. Not hanging up, mind you. Just tucked away in a drawer waiting to see if we would become the kind of people who only have a few knives. I’ve given up on that idea. We both like to cook, and we both have our favorite knives, so really I don’t know what I was thinking the day I bought the knife magnet.
Even though we won’t use it in our kitchen, I’m glad I bought it. I was in the craft room earlier this week searching for my scissors. I remembered the knife magnet. 10 minutes later I had a scissors holder behind my machines.
I love having my scissors at the ready. When things are in their place it is so much easier to convince myself to get to work.
