What do we do with the numerous candle jars and glasses? I love candles, (see post from Bath & Body Works Candle Haul) but I wasn’t really sure what to do with all of the nice containers that they come in. Do you recycle them? Just throw them away?! (NO!) I started to sort of stock pile them in an empty cabinet waiting for my “aha!” moment. A couple months ago I saw a vlog where one of my favorite bloggers Kristen Gehm was cleaning out the bath and body works containers to use as storage. My immediate thought was DUH!?! They are a really nice size for helping keep things organized. Check out some of my favorite uses so far.
That seemed silly and not very attractive. They were a pain to fish out and the plastic was tearing around the top. I took them and put them in their own containers from bath and body works, a 3-wick candle and a mini candle. The other jar is a Swan Creek candle that I received as a gift – smelled like Ah-mazing cinnamon rolls that almost made you drool! This one I store some random items from my desk in. A measuring tape, super glue, and some label tape. These jars sit on my desk and while its still cluttered…that section of my desk looks a little bit tidier! 🙂
2) Bathroom Storage! I have two small containers of pony tail holders & bobby pins and another glass with my favorite flossers that fit perfectly in my medicine cabinet! I have another to corral my lip products. One that keeps my makeup brushes organized, and another that holds cotton rounds that I use for everything from nail polish remover to eye makeup remover and toner!
