When I shared my office filp-flop with you a few weeks ago, I showed off my cute glitter collection and storage basket.
Truth be told, I don’t really use glitter all that often, but I do love looking at baskets of pretty glitter. 🙂
Well, there was
one two things that stuck out like a big ol’ fat sore thumb; those honkin’ big containers of sparkly white glitter.
I knew on my eternal quest for absolute cuteness that I could do so much better than those big eye sores. And a quick trip to my local Dollar Tree proved just the solution.
The dollar store has these fun big sugar shaker jars that I’ve been eying forever, but never could think of an excuse to buy them. Well, my glitter dilemma was just the excuse I needed!
(I also recently saw these sugar shakers at my local grocery store as well for just under $2 each).
Transplanting the glitter to its new home was as easy as removing both lids and pouring the glitter into the new container. Rocket Science right here folks.
I’d say my quest for cuteness was a success on the glitter front.
Yes, there are starving people and world wars to worry about, but I’m wasting my days pouring glitter from one jar to the next. (I obviously have too much time on my hands.)
But seriously, can a basket full of glitter be any cuter? I think not.
And now with Christmas hot on my heels, I think this glitter may actually get some use this month.
Before and after:
Trust me, there’s a cute solution for almost any problem; and the dollar store’s generally the answer.
I may not be the craftiest person on the planet, but darn it, my glitter basket looks cute.
