Recently arrived: Pegboard, 25 cents a square foot

We’ve recently received a bunch of sheets of white pegboard, and they’re going very fast!  If you’re interested, stop by soon.  Pegboard is wonderful for organizing in the garage, office, pantry, crafting space, or even in a child’s room:

This great storage idea is from photographer Mandy Busby. Using pegboard for extra storage and display in a kid’s room can open up more floor space for little ones to play, and will remain useful as the kids grow and their needs change.
