Find of the Week:
Just in time for back-to-school,
Dollarama has these Rubbermaid Take Alongs in three different
sizes to help you pack lunches for school and work . There are
three 3-piece containers in the first two packages and four
containers with lids in the third one.
See past Finds here.
Organize your craft
supplies and make them easily accessible by using a lazy Susan. We
cut a piece of non-slip shelf liner to fit the top of this 10-inch
glass lazy Susan and added six mini glass canisters to hold small
craft pieces like buttons, tacks and other small pieces. These
small canisters come in a set of three for two bucks. Place a
square votive candle holder in the middle to store things like
sharpie markers and paint brushes.

The next easiest thing to do is to shop the dollar store for inexpensive items that can be used alone or put together to make something totally new. The three suggestions following, range in price from a buck to $13 but you may already have some of these materials at hand.

If you traveled this summer, whether it was close to home or to some exotic local, you may have come home with a few souvenirs. Sometimes what we buy comes in plastic bags that are stamped with interesting art that appeals to us as much as the treasures we bought. If you’re like me, you’re reluctant to throw these bags away.
Still, apart from lining the bathroom waste basket or using it to carry your shoes to work, what can you do with even an attractive empty bag? Make art!
Of all crafts to do, this one is super easy and, when you’re done, you’ll have another reminder of an enjoyable trip.
