It’s not uncommon to find random words stuck in funny places around our house… the side of a chair, between the couch cushions, the bottom of my shoe, the bottom of my foot (!), the inside of a cabinet… you name it.
With more than 1,000 bits cut and waiting to be pressed into use, it’s not a far stretch to find them somewhere…. lurking. waiting. hanging out.
But that’s not really where I want those word bits to live!
So where are they when they aren’t roaming around our house? I find everyday containers work great… some better than others. Three of my favorites are small mayo jars, wide-mouth salsa or queso jars, and Talenti jars (also wide-mouth). Each is small enough to place in my lap while watching TV and
cutting up deconstructing books to dig through when I’m looking for something. Sometimes the jars’ contents are even themed, which makes organizing and finding just the right word … easy.
Nothing fancy or complicated about this tip. Just lots of hot soapy water and plenty of drying time before using…..
repurposed food containers + repurposed word bits + a dab of paint or washi tape (optional) = sustainable creative containers for the win!
Do you have a favorite repurposed, sustainable container you use for art + writing supplies?
