It’s possible . . .
. . . that someone is thinking, “Wow, she’s right. That shelf is a mess. What a bad storage solution.”
The mess on the shelf isn’t actually what I’m talking about.
This ain’t no organizational blog, Lady.
Here’s the deal. Today is Day Three of Snow Week. I wanted to create a look-what-we-did-while-drinking-faux-hot-chocolate-on-our-day-at-home-isn’t-our-mother-the-most-creative kind of moment. I ran across a book that claimed it had project ideas using items you already have.
And if it’s claiming that normal people have these objects, you know I have them.
I flipped through and found an idea to make banks out of coffee cans. And we’ve got plenty of those. Not actually cans, but even cooler, more modern, handled plastic coffee containers.
I’ve started throwing them away. We have so many that I just can’t find uses for them all.
Hubby won’t throw them away. Because they’re cool. So we end up with two or three in the pantry at any given time.
When I decided to make this craft, I remembered that some had been shoved on the top shelf, you know . . . just to get them out of the way. Who knows how long they’d been up there?
I grabbed one, and it was heavy. I opened it. It was full of crayons.
Crayons like we can never find when we need them, but we know that we must surely own.
The other had paint in it.
