You all know I like to re-purpose things. Ummmm.......does the animal crackers container turned brass bear lamp rings any bells? ;) I'll admit I can get a little cray cray about re-purposing things that most might just throw away. I think deep down I'm a 90 year old woman who doesn't like to throw containers away - it's a borderline sickness - but I don't plan on seeking treatment.
So when I saw that Jen repurposed the travel sized Q-tips container as an ear bud case I think my crazy- container-hoarding-head popped off! My sister-in-love got me addicted to having a travel sized pack of q-tips in my make-up bag at all times. They really do come in handy for so many things. When I finally used the last one I put Jen's awesome idea to use.
I was able to get both my ear buds and usb cable in there! Woot - no more loosey-goosey wires in my desk drawer!
I just used a little piece of card stock and some washi tape to make a label.
I'm kind of embarrassed to tell you just how ridiculously happy this makes me. There is something so gratifying about reusing something that would have gone in the trash. And I never would have thought to try this if I hadn't read Jen's awesome blog!
Have you repurposed any containers lately?
I'm linking up with my girl Courtney - she's having an organization partay! Even these little itty bitty steps towards an organized life count right?!
