We keep our Tupperware in the cabinet above the refrigerator. That way, after a trip and some shifting, lightweight things fall on our heads when we open it, instead of heavy things.

Last week I noticed I was missing some lids. Then during a few colder days we noticed a strong breeze coming from that area when we opened the cabinet door. Low and behold, the back panel of the cabinet had come loose on the bottom (turns out it’s just stapled together) and some lids had slipped out to be lost forever in the void behind the refrigerator.

This wasn’t hard to fix, but was super annoying. There’s nothing to grab on to while you pull it closer, so Deke did a Macgyver and came up with this:

A couple of L-brackets work great, and see that little eye hook? He screwed that in and then we looped a piece of string around it so I could pull the panel in while he screwed on the bracket. Not pretty, but it worked!

We added a third bracket for good measure!
