With school back in session, the paperwork is flowing into our house like one of those chocolate fountains. I do my best to file it away as needed, but… there are always a few pieces of paper that need to be front and center and that’s where my trusty cork board comes in handy. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite cork board hacks with you… It will cost you $5 max, and quite possible $0 if you happen to have scrap fabric and thumbtacks kicking around!
