    IKEA Hack for Paper Clutter

    Ikea Hackers

    Create a place on your entryway wall to keep annoying but all-important bills and receipts using IKEA TOSTERUP door handles. They're available in three different colors: White, black and red and come in packs of two for $15.99.

    Don't have tools to hang them? No problem, if you pick up a pack of Sugru. It's a moldable glue that turns into flexible rubber after 24 hours. To remove later, cut the bulk of it off with a knife and scrape off the remaining.

    Refresh an Entryway Mirror

    HEJ Magazine

    We believe an entryway mirror is a must-have if you don't want to fly out the door with your coat buttoned wrong or updo askew. But you don't have to go into debt to buy one that's impossibly chic. Instead, give an IKEA LANGESUND mirror (it costs $27.99) a splash of watercolor using glass paint.
