There are only a few weeks left before summer is over for the kiddos, so all the stores have their back to school supplies out. Even if you don't have school aged children, take a stroll down that aisle...lots of great things we can use too.
Here's one that I found...A Pencil Pouch
There are so many things you can use these little pouches for...
Great for your rotary cutters and their blades, especially when traveling to a class or retreat.
You can add it to a binder of patterns that you might be taking to the class.
Great for small templates and other sewing supplies too...
This was my original intent for these pouches when I bought them...
I've been tossing around the best ideas for making little memory books for the girls of all our travels over the years. Something easy like the expandable folder idea I did in another post...click HERE for that.
Adding the pouch to a three ring photo album of pictures and the pouch would hold all the little souvenirs from that trip...like receipts, tickets, pins, buttons and 3-dimensional doo dads that can't go into a photo album.
The pouches can hold so much and the zipper keeps it all safe and sound.
Also great for any crafting supplies. This is filled with jewelry making supplies, but you can use it for anything from scrapbooking to organizing all your small pieces of ribbon by color!
Another helpful idea is for a first aid pouch. Great for your car's glove compartment, your travel bag on vacation or your desk drawer at work.
You could also organize toiletries for each child by their own colored pouches when traveling.
These little organizing pouches are great and can be used for so many different things. So, the next time you're in a supermarket, office supply, big box store or your local discount chain, stop in the "back to school" section and pick up few for yourself.
Pencil boxes are awesome too!!
Hope you have a great day,
