If I have to choose homemade cookies over store-bought cookies, I would choose homemade every time.
Some days, I’m just not in the mood to bake them and My Man really wants something sweet. That’s saying a lot since he’s really not into sweets. So, he goes to the store and buys some.
He also has a way of doing that when I have plans to bake some the next morning.
He brings home this package of cookies and puts them in the cookie jar, then throws away the packaging. Me, trying my best to do my best in recycling, take the plastic liner the cookies came in to at least take it to be recycled into something new. As, I was putting it into the bag to be recycled, I thought to myself, “Jayne, how could you use this?”
Not really, I got some ideas off of the internet and ran with it. Here’s what I came up with.
I need more of these. Right now, all my make-up is in one box and I have to dig through to find what I want. As, soon as we eat some more cookies, I’m replacing my box with these. Look how nicely it holds my lipstick, which I rarely wear, by the way.
This cookie container is deeper. It could be used to:
- hold condiments when having people over for hamburgers and hot dogs
- for ice cream toppings
- salad toppings
- taco toppings
- help small children with learning to sort things. (colors, shapes, sizes)
That last one is the teacher in me.
The list could go on and on. Let me know what you thought of! I’d love to hear your ideas.
