Make the extra couple or so inches you need to be able to reach the tops of your cabinets from folded rolled magazines, catalogs or newspapers!
Very Simple! Just take out the staples (if there are any) and fold the double page top to bottom and then in 1/2 and 1/2 again until it is the height you want (I like mine to be an inch to inch and 1/2) and roll them.
I like it better to fold all the pages first then secure them with small tabs of tape or glue.
When you are finished, secure the end. Add a cord if you like so it can hang in the kitchen pantry or on the back porch where you know they will always be.
I made 2 of them today for this purpose and one is a little smaller around than the other so when I stack them for added height, they are more stable. Better than having to lug out the step stool for just one thing!

add a cord or ribbon around the outside edge of these to hang somewhere handy.Make the top one (if you need to use 2) a little smaller than the other.
sbb1: our phonebook here isn't quite an inch thick - it wouldn't be much use!
But I'm glad someone knows what I am talking about!
