Container Freak

Yep, that's me! Even name a board about it, like to see it, here it is... It's a Pinterest Board, of course.

It is pretty bad, I keep all kinds of boxes, and containers, and if it has a lid, I am definitely keeping it. I have shelves in the garage, with containers lined/stacked up on them. If we need to put something in something, I usually have it covered.  My daughter regularly has to reel me back in from buying random baskets and such. LOL Which brings me to the topic of this day. Ever heard of Birch Box? Well it's this cool "club" like thing, basically you fill out a short survey, pay $10 a month (actully they have different plans to choose from) and they send you samples of different products. This month is my second shipment, but they both had things in them that I had never heard of, or would have never bought on my on. So that is pretty cool! When I opended it up, I was so excited about the box, I wasn't even thinking about the items that was inside.

It's a small box, but it is made out of really sturdy cardboard....and it has a lid. KEEPING IT! :)

Not a tall box, but it has a lid. KEEPING IT! :)

Moving right along.... One day while I was out on a "I'm bored, let's go to Target" trip....I found these cool products called Kid Made Modern (Todd Oldham) They had a whole line of stuff...paint, brushes, paper, duct tape, painted tape. What? Painted tape... yes, and it came home with me. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but....

Nine rolls, 20 feet long, and 3/4 in wide. I bet you can see where this is headed, right? Plain-ish box. colorful sticky strips....done and done. LOL

Cute huh?

Birch Box gets Colorful makeover. Not sure what the heck I have got on it, who knows, it's still cute. I figure they will make a nice gift box for someone. Well, off to cover another box.

    i also have this thing about saving boxes. mine are most of the time shoe boxes.

    1. Nice to know I am not alone. LOL. I have been saving shoe boxes lately too. for my son's MAGIC card collection, that is growing out of control.
