Okay, I hope you don't laugh but today I wanted to share how I am storing my heat tool. Yes, the organizational posts will be few in coming as I complete my new room but I am SO excited about my "find" that I wanted to share this with you.
First, heat tools can be very dangerous. I think of it like I would a flat iron or curling iron. It's something I always want to unplug immediately after use. I have heard of heat tools falling, getting switched on, and starting fires. Now I think my old heat tool could have done that easily but I am not sure my current heat tool could do that but I certainly treat it that way!
Anyway, as I was unpacking yet another box, I came across my old drink and trash holder that I purchased probably 12+ years ago. It was called the Chatterbox Tag-A-Long. Anyone remember these or still have one? Another company sells them now, and it's called The ScrapMaBob. You can search the web as it seems many stores have them even amazon.com and Wal-Mart.
Well, I quit using this little beauty a while ago so I put it up in storage. I forgot about it until I unpacked it. As I pulled it out of the box, I knew immediately what I wanted to use it for--my heat tool! I don't keep drinks at my desk while I am working so I didn't need it for that. I keep my drink somewhere else in my room so this little beauty has now become my "heat tool holder." I LOVE it! It's so handy to grab and use and put away! And because the holder is metal, I don't have to worry about my heat tool still being hot when I put it down. So, if you have one of these laying around, you might want to think about pulling it back out and using it for your heat tool! I love re-purposing stuff, and this one has been great thus far!
So look around and see what metal holder you might have lying around that you could clamp to your desk and use for your heat tool! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope this has been helpful. Blessings,
