WFMW: Who Moved My Cheese (Slicer)?


When I visited my mom this summer, I noticed this super simple yet brilliant idea that she had implemented: The cheese slicer was in the cheese drawer of her refrigerator!

Just one very small solution that makes life a tad easier – Since you use it only for cheese anyway, why keep it in the drawer ? (Every kitchen has one, full of such gadgets and tools.) This way, you always have it handy right near the item you use it with – the cheese! I've also found that I'm not searching for it in the dishwasher as much , either, since I'm just using it for the same thing over and over again.

Mom is quite clever.

Head on over to Rocks in My Dryer for more great ideas.

I agree, she is quite clever. I've decided I need 19 more cheese slicers... maybe make a mobile over the cupboard... I can never find my favorite ONE. I just have ONE. That's my biggest problem.

Very clever Mom, indeed. Thanks for sharing!

Now why can't I ever think of these simple things? I seem to make my life more complicated every chance I get!

Now that is a good idea. Of course I would get comments from my boys like "Mom's lost it she is now storing utinsils in the refrigerator =)))" . But seriously this is a great idea.

Cheese slicer? CHEESE SLICER?!
Maybe I could apply WFW tips if I had the original product to even simplify cheese slicing.
Sheesh.
My life is so desperately lacking.

Rhythmless, I'm mailing you a cheese slicer.

Do you have a potato peeler?

Tammy said...

Great idea! Sometimes we are just so use to doing something a certain way, but a small change could make life so much easier!

Hmmm, interesting, now, if I could only make mi familia put the cheese in the same place...

Rhythmless, how about a cheese grater, have one of those?

okay, that made me say "duh". That's the perfect place to keep it!

Thanks!

Who'd of thought...well, actually, your clever mom. I guess they really do know best..on some things!
I like your new look. I haven't visited for a bit, and popped in and went WOW, she redecorated!
Cool.
