nestabilities

Yesterday, I told you that I'd show you how I store my Nestabilities. Well, it is really pretty basic but does require some shelf space for storage.

So...this is the clam shell that the Nestabilities come to you from the manufacturer in. When I bought my first couple of them they came in individual packages but now they come in one big package. Very large, very cumbersome and totally not storage friendly.
After I receive the package that is in the first picture I turn it into what you see above. I just went and bought some CD cases and magnetic strip with adhesive on the back. The rest you can pretty much figure out. I do have a problem with one or two of the dies moving around but the case is closed for storage so really it doesn't matter. These fit on my book shelf next to my PTI sets and I just love this storage system and my Nesties. Want some for yourself but not sure where to get them? Go to Cut@Home, sign up for their VIP newsletter and when you receive the newsletter each month you will receive a 40% off one item coupon. That means the $77 set of four squares you see cost me $46 plus shipping. Not sure anyone else can beat that. Two things though. The Cut@Home website is very slow...it takes forever for pages to load but the coupon is worth it. Most places are out of Nesties right now...Cut@Home included. They will take your order though and put you on the waiting list. That is what I did and as soon as they came in they were mine. Woohoo!

In other news...are you currently trying to loose weight or on Weight Watchers? Then, I have the book for you! It is called Hungry Girl. It is a fantastic book full of recipes that look amazing but are easy on the waist line. Amazon has it for less than $10 right now when the price on the book is $17.99. So it is easy on the checkbook too! Not sure if you want the book? If you go HERE you can sign up for their newsletter and get daily recipes and great ideas for eating healthier.

Okay, I'll stop writing now. You all have a super Thursday!

HAPPY MAY DAY!!!

Oh my gosh! I did the same thing, only I didn't go to the store! I went all over the house and popped the CD holder part out and put my magnetic strip in there and then my nesties!

Great minds think alike!

I get my end of year bonus tonight.... oh the possibilities!!!

Super cute! I love how you store your nesties! I need to figure out storing mine and this looks like a simple option!

Also -- thanks for the link to the recipe book, I love healthy cooking (well, unhealthy too, but healthy is better for my family and me) *giggles* YOU ROCK!

I am planning on doing this with my Nesties. Looks like a great way to store them.
