Cute & Simple: Storing Gel-Clings


Okay, this is probably the most lame topic I have blogged about in my entire blogging career.  Since I am in this purge mode, I don’t have anything particularly crafty or creative to share with you today (that’s because I need to clean up first)! 

So yesterday, as I was cleanining up and taking down, I came up with a clever little way in which to store my seasonal gel-clings.  I should continue with a gel-cling disclaimer: I do not particularly like them.  It all started when my oldest daughter was really into sensory stimulation–she was probably around 2.5 or 3 years old.  She would gravitate towards them from the cart when we’d be shopping.  I thought they sort of verged on the “tacky” side, so I held off. 

After much interest from my daughter, I gave in and have purchased them almost as often as the seasons change.  I guess I have grown accustomed to their look and now I hang them on the slivered windows that frame my door.  My youngest tells me they make our windows look pretty like the ones at church…guess I can’t argue with that! 

But I don’t like the idea of just throwing them out year after year, season after season (unless they are torn, etc).  In the past, I have wrapped them in waxed paper.  Yesterday, I popped ’em in a large Zip-Loc.  Try for yourself and see what you think! 

(By-the-way, don’t even consider sticking them on your walls–they stain–and the Magic Eraser doesn’t even touch them)
