Happy Thrifty Thursday...the day we use what you have for something else!!
Since I have eggs on the brain because Easter is this weekend, I thought I would share an idea to use the plastic egg tray from your refrigerator to organize little things around the house.
This egg tray came with our refrigerator, but I removed it because when our daughters are home or if I'm baking a lot, I buy eggs in the 18 pack and this is a 12 egg tray. It's easier to store the eggs in the carton it came in.
I also found this other egg tray at a thrift store for 50 cents!!
I use it in my desk draw for small office supplies.
Office supplies in your desk...
Sewing supplies. If your tray has a handle, it's also easy to carry your sewing supplies to different spots, especially if you do hand sewing.
Organized your buttons...
Fill each cup with different beads for jewelry making...
Small nails, picture hangers or hardware supplies to keep in the kitchen drawer, so you don't have to go in the basement or garage for small things.
Great for jewelry too...rings and earrings
If you keep the plastic tray in your refrigerator, you can be really thrifty and use the cardboard or styrofoam egg cartons for all of the above ideas.
I would love it if you'd share your ideas if you use egg trays in your home.
Have a great Thursday,
