Hide & Seek

Posted: January 2nd, 2011 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

I’ve been wanting to do this post for a very long time, but one major problem. I really had no clever hiding spots in my own home.

I kept thinking that one of my great ideas would come to fruition. I had a short list.

1. An ironing board and cabinet from skymall:

Ironing Board & Cabinet

2. A cookbook holder hidden under a cabinet:

Under Cabinet Cookbook Holder

3. Or even a DIY trashcan in a drawer:

But then technology (aka my husband David) took over.

Can you spot the new addition to our cabinets?


He finally convinced me (really I gave in) that we needed a mount for one of our ipads. Yes, I say one because did you know that “17% of ipad owners say one just isn’t enough.” This is the kind of information that I get from my technology guy. This one is our “family” ipad, since our 5 year old was taking over my husbands. Well, I also admit, I just really liked the idea of knowing where the thing was, and keeping it from falling on the floor. But now I am supposed to be pulling up recipes from it and actually using it to make meals? Yeah, don’t know about that, but honestly the deal was done when the kids went crazy for the movie that streamed in from Netflix during dinner.


I guess it also fits right in with my organization passion, so it made the cut!
