Just Boxes...


Hit a neighborhood garage sale yesterday. Oh, so excited to go, as I was thinking there would be gobs of sales, as it was advertised as a 45 family sale...but it was one sale that 45 families contributed to. Bought three Estee Lauder boxes that zip open/closed for $2/each. I didn't even ask for a bargain because it was for a good cause.

My mind is racing with ideas as to what they can hold…CDs, photos, jewelry, books, Wii and TV remotes, make-up, scrapbooking, sewing, knitting goodies, and under the counter storage for toiletries. Also, handy in a kid's room or in the car for toys. Wouldn't they make great gift boxes?

Thanks for stopping by...

Hi Renee, Love the neutral color and the endless storage possibilities. Would they make great gift boxes? Sure. Would I want to give them away? No way. :)

Boxes like these make the best storage.
I haven't been to a garage sale yet this spring but sure will soon!
