Keeping a small home organised is difficult when there is lots of stuff to organise. Sugru is an awesome little invention that really has helped me no end.
Sugru is great. It fixes things, it makes things, and it holds things. It’s like plasticine. For adults… It sets like a really firm and strong rubber.
Sugru have created the “Organise Small Spaces” kit. It really is a brilliant little kit that contains:
4 x 5g single-use packs of Sugru in Black, White, Grey and Red
A booklet with 14 awesome hacks and ideas
3 x picture frame D-hooks to hang pretty much anything anywhere
A humble toothpick to create perfect cable grips
A Sugru Remover tool + handy tin for easy storage
The ideas are amazing and the kit has proved really useful despite my initial thoughts that surely Sugru couldn’t help me organise my home.
The Kitchen Cork Board held up by Sugru
I bought my cork board 2 years ago before Enfys went into hospital. It’s been many places (down the side of the fridge, under the stairs and in the shed to name a few) except on the wall. It has been very patiently waiting for Jim to find the opportunity to hang it properly.
Last week, I bit the bullet and decided I would get it on the wall. I wondered if it really was as strong as it claims. Could it really keep a cork board on the wall?
I stuck a blob of Sugru (red, of all colours to choose) on each corner and just pushed it onto the wall. It took 2 minutes (although far longer to get it straight)… Straightening it up meant that it fell off the wall.
It took 24 hours to fully set but, over a week later, the cork board is holding up. 🙂
The Sugru hooks on the shelves
The “Organise Small Spaces” kit also shows you how to make different types of hooks. You have so many opportunities for different types of projects.
I decided I was going to go with Rhino hooks for my shelves. I have a few hanging ornaments with beautiful quotes that have been given to me but I had nowhere to really display them. My hand mirror had no home either.
Now, thanks to Sugru, they do indeed have a home. (Please ignore all the random junk on my shelves – everything does have a story though.)
