Little Rhody Natural eggs, and then cut it apart to create three storage trays. You could leave the top on if you want storage with a lid; I wanted to be able to place them flat in the storage drawer that I take out of its cabinet and bring to my table when I'm ready to make jewelry. The egg-shaped sides stack nicely, provided they are not too full.
Here are some uses for your empty egg cartons that I came up with just off the top of my head, but there are probably a lot more:
- Desk drawer: Use one or more sides to organize paper clips, binder clips, erasers, sticky notes, etc.
- Craft and sewing supplies: With or without lids, you supplies will be neat and organized. No more ransacking drawers looking for one specific thing -- or worse, buying something you forgot you had.
- Tiny toys: I'm thinking of Barbie's accessories or all those pieces for the Littlest Pet Shop -- but anything tiny and easily lost can be stored in egg cartons. Let the kids get creative and decorate the cartons with stickers.
- Girls' hair accessories: You'll be able to find barettes, snap clips, and ponytail holders, even on a busy morning. Let your daughter get creative with decorating the outside of the carton.
- Kitchen junk drawer: One or more trays will neatly store batteries, matches, restaurant business cards, rubber bands, twist ties, etc.
- Jewelry: if you're a gal who keeps jewelry in the top dresser drawer -- or a guy with tie tacks and cufflinks you want to store -- a plastic egg carton is the perfect see-through storage solution.
- Home repair kit: Keeping those screws, nuts, washers, etc. organized might make it less likely that you and your significant other will fight while fixing something. Might. I'm not making any promises.
