I use repurposed packaging to organize around my house all the time. It’s earth-friendly, free, doesn’t make me feel guilty with I don’t like it and recycle it, and the only limit is your imagination.
I started with an empty cotton swab box.
I trimmed off the edge. If you find you have sharp points left, you can trim them with nail clippers.
Your imagination and organizing needs are the only limits. Here are 10 ways I’ve used this same box in my home.
In the kitchen….
…for chip clips
…for measuring cups and spoons
…for hot cereal packets
…for lunch snacks.
In the office…
…in the junk drawer to hold loose items
…to hold note pads and pens by the phone.
In the bathroom…
…to hold brushes and combs.
In the dresser…
In the toy room…
…to hold small toys.
What ways can you think to use free, earth-friendly repurposed packaging to organize your home?
