What do you have on your ironing board? I try not to let too much junk stack up, but this basket is a permanent fixture.
There's also a small pair of scissors next to the basket on the other side. Lint rollers, rulers, pins, a pressing cloth--everything I might need while ironing.
And now a reminder via MY MOM!
Clean out your sewing machine! Blow some air in there! Change the needle! Get all the goop from thread spools cleaned off the spindle! You'll be glad you did.
Speaking of thread...What on Earth can I do with all these empty spools? I feel a pang of guilt everytime I throw one away.
