Do you tend to collect place mats that you end up storing until the next big holiday - or have different place mats depending on the occassion (one set for Christmas, one for Easter, etc) you probably have an entire drawer just dedicated to place mats. But here is how to reclaim that drawer space by storing your placemats easier.
Purchase a few metal bulldog clips, which can be bought at office supply stores or places like Target and WalMart. Place each set of placemats in a clip (or two sets, depending on how many you have in a set). Then on the backside of your linen closet door or the backside of your pantry door or kitchen cabinet, hammer in a small nail. Then hang your placemats on the door, which keeps them out of the way!
