WFMW- Wipes Containers


With TONS of empty baby wipes containers (from 2 little ones that are really close in age), I was faced with the daunting task of .... what in the world to do with all of them. For a while, I threw them out, but then I starting using them- for everything! My hubby uses them to organize small things in his workshop; I use them as a caddy for small toothbrushes and toothpaste in the kid's bathroom. We use them for organizing small toys in the toy armoire, and, as you see pictured here, I use them in the activity cabinet for organizing colors, stickers, etc. This definitely works for me!



Happy Wednesday and
Much Love,

Good idea! This serves as a double purpose and will prevent me from buy the "refills" when I need wipes and use the same container over and over. I like to organize and wipes boxes can come in handy for A LOT of things! Thanks for the tip!

Cool! I will be checking that out! I keep my passwords in an excel spreadsheet right now and print it. However, with all the new places I visit every day I have hand written scribbles all over my printed list and it's very unorganized! Thanks for the tip!

I have a WFMW up with an idea on how to preserve your child's school and/or art work.

Jennifer,

I just found your blog from your contribution to Crystal's blog. You have a wonderful blog!!! I will keep your husband in my prayers. My brother served in Iraq when the war first started, so I can imagine a little bit of what you are feeling. He came home safe and sound, by the way, we were very very blessed.

Your husband and your children are adorable :)

Take care,
Leigh

I love recycling items that necessities come packed in, so this is a fantastic idea!

I need to share this idea with my teacher friends. We are always trying to find more containers to hold all the "stuff" we have. Great idea!

Hey, I cannot remember how I found your blog, but I think it was through BooMama. I am an Alabama raised girl who will soon be relocating to Mississippi. Somewhere on the coast. My husband is also military. I have just started a blog Homefront Mom. It needs tons of help, but I amgetting there. I would love to pick your brain. We will need a place to live in MS by Christmas.
