We love to grill at the Thrifty Crafty house. We had a gas grill for years, but the smell and taste of cooking on charcoal sent us back to a regular grill. As such, we find the need to start our charcoal fire with a chimney and newspaper, paper that we collect and hang on to so we can have it handy when we have the hankering for a grilled meal. The problem? Where do we put this paper?
I've been putting the newspaper in a plastic bag and hanging it on a hook in our laundry closet, an easy enough solution for storing these papers. But it's not pretty. And to be frank, it's in the way. A fix needed to be found.
I went to my local Staples and found this:
My next stop was Michael's (of course) in the search for some good paper to dress up my fancy new tray. I thought to myself, "Self, wouldn't it be great if I found some scrapbook paper that looked like newspaper? It would be just perfect! But of course, that would never happen... silly girl."
But it happened:
I hung the tray on the wall in the laundry closet and put some paper in it to make sure the whole thing looked pretty. And pretty it is... so pretty!
Seriously though... anybody want to make that bacon-flavored gum for me?
