Well I post so many deals… a lot of them from Target… and I thought I would mention a deal I found at my store this week plus what I actually did with it.
I found these little red placemats on clearance from $1.99 to $.58 each. There was a big stack so I grabbed 10 of them since placemats are always in high demand around here- I use them for art projects, the children’s snacks and meals, in the playroom etc…
This red pattern wouldn’t have been my first choice but at $.58 how can you say no.
One thing I have been wanting to do is line the drawers with good contact paper. The drawers in our bathroom in particular are not that attractive and I have been thinking I really should line them. But alas that is something I just haven’t made the time to do- plus I want a good quality liner that will hold up to water and spills and such and will actually last and those products are kind of expensive.
So when I found these nifty little placemats, I decided to bring them home and see how they would work.
I just used a simple measuring tape on the drawer and being the imperfectionist that I am I just sort of eyeballed the measurements and went ahead and cut. The pattern on these particular mats made it super easy to do. If you have more time, I think marking the placemats with a sharpie for exact cuts would be pretty easy to do.
Then I fit them inside the drawers and viola! In 5 minutes the work is all done and now the inside of the drawers don’t make me cringe.
The nice thing is that these can be removed and used elsewhere and they are very easy to clean. No worries about ripping paper or spending ages and ages perfectly measuring things.
These worked nicely in the silverware drawer in the kitchen too- and again it just couldn’t be easier to do. I am going to add them to the desk drawers in the playroom this weekend.
The regular price on these place mats was $1.99 but you can call and give your store DPCI number 067032141 to see if they are on sale in your area.
