I am a fan of boxes for storage. I don't know about you, but I run out of places to put things and I find boxes (big and small) very handy. There are many to choose from and they come in many different sizes and shapes. They start from a under a dollar and can cost over $20 for the fancy ones. There a girly boxes, boxes for children, more boyish boxes and just plain boxes. I always struggle in deciding which ones I need as there is often too many to choose from!!
If mine are on display (such as on a shelf in the bedroom) I go for the more expensive feminine designed ones (see below). If they are for the cupboard (e.g. for sewing) where only I see them - I am not as fussy.
These feminine boxes are in my bedroom - considering how pretty they look, they aren't expensive additions to a room - the larger box was $12, the smaller box $9 and but really do look lovely on the shelf. These I picked up from the Reject Store (dollar store). I can imagine a little girl loving these in her room (I would have for sure).
Today I went to my favourite "Reject store" and bought a new box. This one is much sturdier than the other boxes I have and therefore should last much longer (its also quite roomy too). It has both butterflies and pink roses on it - perfect for me as these are two of my favourite things and I really like the catch on the front plus those words.
This one is on a shelf in my study and I am using it for stationary items ..... isn't it pretty?
Are you into boxes or is it just me and my need to keep things looking tidy and neat?
