I love using things in ways they were not intended to be used. Here are some different ways I have come across that I think I am going to use.
A soap box to hold a deck of cards. So much better than the cardboard ones they come in!
Use a tackle box to hold batteries all in one place.
Use a pants hanger to hang ribbon.
How about dressing up an old spice rack to hold small items such as pins, rubber bands and other things.
How about this clever idea? An egg carton, painted, to store small office supplies. Now why didn’t I think of that?
When you are in need of something and don’t have exactly what you are looking for, try looking at what you do have in a different way. Ask yourself what you could possibly use in place of what you are lacking. You will be surprised at what you will come up with!
