Day #85: Shelf Liner

Some things make life easier. Having lived in many older apartments, I became an expert at laying down Contact paper. I wanted clean surfaces, easy to wash, that pepped up an often-grungy wood or painted surface. I lined many drawers and shelves. Our current home has 20-year-old Contact paper which, from experience, I know will be the dickens to get up, leaving behind a sticky surface that will need scrubbing to feel clean again. Ugh.

My most recent find is cork shelf and drawer liner. I am grateful to whoever thought of this because it is easy to clean, stays put without adhesives, and it’s not plastic.We learn. Today’s reflection is mundane but I believe it’s important to recognize that life gets better in small steps.
