Organize Anything with Wire Storage Cubes

About 3 years ago, a friend who was moving away left us some of their things at home.  Some of these items were decorative items, a computer table, a glass cabinet, kitchen utensils and others.  One that I found really useful were these collapsible wire storage cubes.  They are easy to take apart and reassemble.  You can literally find all sorts of uses for it in organizing things at home. Just be creative.

Here are some of the ways that I have used these wire storage cubes at home:
  • I have used it as dividers for my personal books / files and have used the top portion for keeping some office supplies.
  • Since it's welded open wire, I have used the side to hang all these bulky items like sunglasses, head bands, etc.
  • I have one used for dumping in our kids' toys specifically the small stuffed toys so that they wouldn't just lie around.  Easy for the kids to dig through and it's just as easy for them to put back the toys in themselves.
  • I have used one sort of as a shoe / slipper rack by the door for keeping our slippers and sandals all in one neat place.  Just lift the rack and vacuum the dust accumulated underneath.
Other handy uses that I could think of for this item include:
  • As a magazine rack - my friend actually used one this way and placed it in their bathroom.
  • As clothes and bath towels organizer.
  • As kitchen organizer for keeping groceries.
  • Just add an S-hook and use it to hang all sorts of things like neckties, IDs, keys, etc.
  • As a side cabinet in your office where you can organize nicely all those files and folders.
So, if you want to declutter and give a more organized look for your things at home, be creative and try to use wire storage cubes.

That's a good idea for organizing stuff in the room. Did you do it all yourself? Terrific...
Maybe I'll imitate your ideas to make the bookcase to make it look neat. You make a wire rack for glasses that are very creative. Do you have an idea for saving the files from the office? I want to buy a file cabinet, but my room did not have enough space. Are there any suggestions for me?

I think my friend who gave these wire storage cubes to me got them from Ikea. But I think these are also available in office supplies store online. I've checked Amazon and they are available there as well.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
