Stop losing your screws!!!

February 1, 2010

Losing your screw? And I am not talking about your mind, although that does happen occasionally here at THE BASICS with my hectic schedule. No, I’m talking about loose screws from your home renovation projects. When you remove an electrical outlet plate or handle from your cabinets or drawers, you’re unsure where to put the screws. And what usually happens is you lose the screws. Here is a tip I learned from my dad; TAKE A PIECE OF MASKING TAPE AND STICK ALL THE SCREWS TO IT. Then stick to the outlet plate or underneath the cabinet to store. No more screws going missing, in the hardware department that is! Another handy idea is to use old prescription bottles to store screws and nails. Just pull off the prescription on the front of the bottle and you are good to go.
