Going with the idea of using what I have, I decided to make some pretty storage using a Twisted Tea 12 pack box (don't judge me!), some fabric, and spray adhesive. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure how this was going to turn out, so I didn't take any pictures during the process. It obviously turned out ok, since I'm sharing the results!
I filled the box with my etsy shop materials, labeled it and put it up on the shelf. If you're a fan of my facebook page, you know that I got a great deal on labels at Staples. These are Martha Stewart labels and were on sale for $2 for the package of 12. Staples had a $2 off coupon on all of the Martha Stewart labels, making these free! Wahoo :)
I also needed a solution for a few things that I used a lot like my scissors and tape measure. They kept winding up on my table because I needed them a lot, but I wanted to find a place to put them away. You know, a place for everything and everything in it's place, right? You can get a sneak peek of this solution in the above photo.
sister's bridal shower as well as some wire. I was playing around with it one night with the intention of making some hanging vases or candle holders for our back deck. Once I attached the wire, I wanted to make sure that it would safely hang and I was too
Again, I'm proud of what I was able to do on an almost zero budget. I'm getting a few diaper boxes from a friend tomorrow and I'm going to see what I can do with those for more storage at school. You know I'll keep you posted!
What free or inexpensive storage solutions have you come up with lately? I hear a lot of good stuff about things found at dollar stores, but I won't venture in there until the spending freeze it over!
