I have an easy-to-do idea to help you in all your Christmas decorating and un-decorating tasks! How many time do you go to hang something like a wreath or a garland and have to run back and forth getting the correct things to complete the task? Wouldn’t it be nice to have all these things in one organized and convenient spot? Today I’m sharing my Christmas Tool Kit. An easy, common sense way to have almost everything you need for small Christmas decorating jobs right at your fingertips!
Think about all those small items like thumb tacks, ornament hangers, wall mounts etc that you usually go digging for when creating pretty Christmas vignettes and displays. I’m putting all those little necessities together in a well designed tool box of sorts… the NEW Rubbermaid® fasten + go! Starting on 12/27/15 head to your local Target store to purchase the NEW Rubbermaid® fasten + go kits! Available in Entree, Sandwich, and Soup Kits. The fasten + go Sandwich kit is the perfect size for a Christmas too kit!
Here’s my fasten + go when it came home with me!!! I took this picture with my cell phone!
There is a large sandwich size container great for larger items like scissors, glue dots, super glue, wire, zip ties, twine, florist tape and anything else you might need to create and take down Christmas decor!
The fasten + go comes with a one cup serving side container that I’m using for various kinds of self stick hooks! I use a lot of them both indoor and out! It’s great to have them all in one place along with alcohol wipes needed to hang the hooks. LOVE having all the tools I need in one place to do a job!
The fasten+ go has 2 one half cup containers. One is just the right size for Christmas ornament hooks… I’m always losing them! And another container works for thumb tacks and rubber bands. I use all these things when I am decorating my home. It will be so nice to de-decorate and have a place for all the little tools I use at Christmas!
Each little compartment snaps into the top of the sandwich size container and keeps them from slipping around. LOVE that feature.
The clear pink outer lid fits over the top containers and fastens to the bottom one. A removable carry strap is great! I can loop it onto my arm and keep my hands free for carrying Christmas decor!
It’s important to customize your own tool kit! Think about what you use during the Christmas season that you would love to have all in one place! Here are some ideas for your kit…
- wire cutters
- glue stick
- super glue
- florist tape
- thumb tacks
- finishing nails
- wire hangers
- electrical tape
- ornament hangers
- zip ties
- replacement lights for trees
My next use for the Rubbermaid fasten + go will be a First Aid Kit! I’m putting one in my car and one in my study.
Here are some things you might put in your first aid kit…personalize it to fit your needs.
- packages of antibacterial ointment
- alcohol wipes
- sanitizing liquid
- super glue (for deep cuts)
- icy/hot patches
- self adhesive wraps
- any meds
- saline eye drops
- cough drops
Just think of all the great things you can put in a fasten + go to keep things together, organize and at hand!
I’ll be packing my Christmas tool kit away with my decorations and next year I’ll know right where my ornament hangers and outdoor hooks are! YES!
