OK, I realize it’s Wednesday but I had to talk briefly about my weekend. It was one of those where you get a million things done but don’t feel like you’re running around like a crazy person. Do you have those?
This is seldom how my life goes and I wish I could figure out how to make it like this all the time. I kept doing stuff and looking at the clock and thinking “how can it be only 2:00? This is awesome!”
Actually, I had to get a lot done because the really terrific people that run Angelo Home ordered 50 of my candle blocks…..and they wanted new designs. I had a lot of fun putting all these together. Let’s hope they like them.
I’ve been on some kind of personal quest for the Perfect Storage Box for quite a while. I needed durable, versatile boxes that could hold a lot, travel easily and use space wisely. For years I’ve made due with a kind of hodge podge of unsatisfying boxes but I have found…..THE ONE!
They are called Really Useful Boxes and here is why I love them.
- They come in a bunch of sizes.
- They are super sturdy.
- They lock tightly, stack securely and…..
When packing for a craft show I always got so annoyed with the sloping sides of other boxes. It wastes space and,because they are wider at the top than at the bottom, I’m forced to layer different things together in each box so I’m always digging through boxes looking for things.Also, with my small Honda Fit where packing space is at a premium these guys fit neatly next to each other – once again no wasted space.
As an added bonus I like things that pull double duty. So, since they boxes lock together pretty snugly when stacked, once I’ve emptied them of their contents they work beautifully as the riser supports on a craft show table.Plus the company recycles and the boxes are recyclable.
I confess I went a little berserk and bought, like, a million of them in different sizes.
I will now always be completely together, organized and calm!
I found the best selection at Office Depot (they have buy two get one free sales on them) but they are available all over the place or via the web site.
No, I am not being compensated for this praise-singing. Just wanted to share a useful product.
