(I know...bad Katie...ending on a preposition!)

  1. First of all, Katie, I'd like to assure you that you did not end with a preposition. "Think of" is a verbal phrase. In this case, "of" does not function as a preposition. I could go on (another verbal phrase!), but perhaps I won't. . . .

    Anyway, baby wipe containers! Those are great uses for them. We bought just one of those big plastic containers before we learned they were not recyclable in our area (at the time). I think we just refilled it with more wipes for a while. Like you, we mostly used cloth wipes, so I really only bought maybe three packs of wipes ever. Too bad one of them had to be in that awful container!

    Thanks for joining us for TGT again!

  2. Those are great ideas. I especially like #6 and #23. My son keeps some small cars in one. I have craft supplies in another. I usually just buy refill wipes, though so I have wipes in a couple boxes still.

  3. These are great!! I still have some of those containers b/c I couldn't throw them away. I'll need to try the yarn one.


Thanks for taking time to leave a comment!
