Create a gift wrapping station for your home- Sweet bunny



In the centre of my living room, my interior designer Hosen installed a built-in cabinet during our BTO home renovation, it was meant for shoes but I did not like the idea of keeping shoes too close to our family altar out of respect. Thankfully, the shelves were adjustable and I rearranged it to create a space to store, the commonly used items my family often reach for, my bags and for as well as a gift-wrapping station.

Pegboard Alternative: using Ikea SVENSÅS Memo board - I had originally purchased two magnetic boards from Ikea for our study but never got to hang the boards up as I didn’t use the space that was meant to be my desk and so the boards just lay forgotten in our laundry yard for a couple of months. About the same time, the mess in my cabinet has been bugging me the clutter of wrapping paper and household accessories was just a hindrance of stuff toppling off the shelves at times and impossible to find what we needed. To resolve this issue I decided to put up the memo boards in my cabinet, amazingly it sucks well with Bostik Original Blu-Tack, I had always preferred the original as it was always strong enough and can come off cleanly when required to. Magnetic boards make a great alternative to Pegboards because you don’t have to place items in a very fixed manner and magnetic boards can be placed almost anywhere without worrying that hooks and attachments fall off, magnets are really strong easily found and more affordable.

Daiso hack for hanging your wrapping paper - Most of the DIY solutions for hanging wrapping paper uses a curtain rod, which I initially wanted to do but I often switch up the way I organise my home and did not want any permanent fixtures. After much consideration and wondering around Daiso an idea struck me, two of the semi-round basket with thin magnet used together placed on their sides is able to hold on to the wrapping paper regardless of length.

Reusing gift bags, wrapping paper and ribbons- The holders are able to hold up about three wrapping papers together, which is sufficient for me, as I do not usually buy many sheets at a time, most of the ones I have were given to me as a freebie from stores. 

I used these holders on the right side up to store wrapping papers from gifts that I receive that are still in good condition to reuse for future events,I also use the holders for items that my household uses. 

I have the habit of keeping ribbons for products I purchased or received as gifts and store them in a sticking can case from Daiso, I believe you can find these in IKEA as well GRUNDTAL Container, stainless steel in a better quality form but for ribbons, I think the Daiso will Suffice.

On the shelf, I used stackable containers from Daiso to keep greeting cards for all occasions and red packets for the lunar new year and stickers that I have collected over the years. Along with other commonly used items that my family always asked me for such as a nail clipper, which is impossible to keep in a bathroom due to Singapore’s humid climate where things can easily rust.
 

I was very satisfied with this arrangement because it saves my family time from sorting and searching for items that we need at a snap of the finger we can just get what we need and be on our way. As long as we have the discipline to keep the items in their proper “homes” we would always be able to find what we need when we need it.



Merry Christmas everyone and a blessed New year ahead! I hope my post will inspire you to create your very own gift-wrapping station.

 

Tupperware still the best today- Sweet Bunny

When I was a child, my mother would take me to block parties organised by the community centre, at these events the aunties of the neighbourhood would sell Tupperware along with some tasty treats that they would bake or cook. My mother purchased a couple of food containers used them on many occasions. I will always hold such memories of my mother close to my heart as I only had about 13 years with her.

I never needed to buy my own kitchenware until I became a homeowner; I found myself needing proper, safe to use and lasting food containers. I have a cabinet in my kitchen where I store all my spices and ingredients. Many of the spices come in ready to use containers but only the salt and sugar come in plastic bags.

Storing salt and sugar-I recently purchased the Tupperware Umami Collection spice container 500ml to store my salt and sugar. , I really like the smart and intuitive design of this Tupperware store container. This spice container is airtight, the lid is easy to open and spill-proof keeping the contents fresher longer. I like my container to be clear as I can easily check at a glance the amount that is left when I prepare my grocery shopping list.

Spice spoon design –The Umami Collection spice container come with a spoon not just any spoon but one that would smartly fit at the upper part of a Tupperware, a spoon rest where the spoon’s feet cling to keeping it clean and easy to access. You wouldn’t need to use your fingers to dig out the spoon from the condiments making it more hygienic. The spoon also has double-sided measurements, perfect for cooking or baking reducing the need of retrieving another cutlery to get the measurement job done. It is also curved reaches into every corner of the container, from top to bottom - No waste!

The purple colour is vibrant are a treat for the eyes as it blends well in my blue-white kitchen well. I made a couple of labels from my brother label maker removing the hassle of guessing if it is salt or sugar. As I have four containers from the set, I used one for salt and the other three for brown and white sugar.

Clutterbug organizing tips, skills that I brought with me to work - Sweet Bunny - Singapore's Hair, Beauty & Lifestyle blogger

About 4 years ago, I was searching for ways to keep my wardrobe tidy, YouTube has always the site I seek when searching for an idea of being a kinetic learner.

As a dyslexic, I prefer to learn by observing how things are done, videos are a great medium since it has the function to re-watch and rewind the videos as many times as I liked, to grasp the skill, concept, and procedures that are required for each project.

First Impressions - The first video I watched by Cassandra was from her old channel on YouTube malitose79. I was hooked from the start! Learning personal organizational skill has never been so fun, she just perks me up every time with her cheery personality and I find her videos very relatable.

Cassandra Aarssen home organization extraordinaire -   I love her videos; she has always shown that even with a tight budget you are able to transform any space of your home into an organized, functional and ethically beautiful space. Yes, I might live a day's journey away from Canada but my little island of Singapore does have a ton of budget-friendly stores with similar concepts to the Dollar Tree enabling me to use some of Cass's ideas. 

Which Clutterbug are you?- Cass has cleverly defined different organizational styles by categorizing each style with bugs characters, doing the quiz on her website helps you to define your organization style. 

Knowing your style will not only help with keeping your spaces tidy but also aid in productivity.

I currently don’t have my own apartment but I used these new skills I learn about my traits at work. In my day job, working as a receptionist being ever-ready to assist in the name of the game. 
I have a tendency to have a ton of projects on hand at once. After taking the quiz I found that my mannerisms in organising are of a busy bee.

For each clutter bug, Cass has a set of useful tips and I can testify that following her methods really does help both at home and at work.

Open shelving and little bins helped me at work to complete a task in mere seconds, previously I had to scramble to find the items that I require while a client or staff member waited for me,  problem solved, everything is at my fingertips and putting away my stationery is a breeze.
