In honor of Earth Day on April 22, I'd like to point you to the Real Simple article on using stuff you already own (shoe boxes, mugs, etc.) as the containers you need.
Some examples from around my own home:
- Many of us have more mugs than we'll ever use. I use a favorite one as my pen cup in my office. (See above - photo taken in garden; office was too dark)
- A cookie tin from France stores postcards in my stationary drawer.
- Pretty gift bags store my spare sponges and dust cloths in my laundry area.
