How to Keep Recipes in Sight, Off the Countertop

This Simple Solution offers a way to display a recipe while you cook — without using valuable counter space.

Simple Solution:

Here’s how to keep recipes in sight, but off the countertop: Drill a small hole in one end of a wooden clothespin.

Then screw it to the back of the face frame along the bottom of a wall cabinet.

Tighten the screw just enough to create a little friction.

Then, clip your recipe card to the clothespin while preparing the meal, and when you’re done, remove the card and pivot the clothespin up behind the face frame.
