Magnetic Home Office Ideas from Better Homes and Gardens

The upside of the economic downturn is many of us are looking for frugal DIY solutions in and around our homes. That doesn't necessarily mean ugly results, as is illustrated by Better Homes and Gardens' two keen examples of home office storage solutions on a dime using magnetic surfaces. A magnetic knife holder (we have an IKEA one in our house) can be positioned vertically and partnered with magnetic hooks and clips to make a great use of vertical storage. A cookie pan adorned with decorative wallpaper turns into a magnetic storage board; best of all, you can pick it up and move your reminders with you...

Other great non-magnetic home ideas include the very simple, soup can pencil holder (yeah, it's super basic, but a great project to do with the kids and a way to use those excess scraps of wrapping paper). And how smart and cute are these plastic container loose change banks? Fill them all up and get yourself to a Coinstar, and treat yourself to a scoop ice cream.
