In our local shop all the loose sweets are in plastic boxes and I asked them the other day what happens to them when they’re empty - and they throw them away! So, I asked them to save me a few and i have cleaned them out and am using them for storing craft bits and pieces and they are fab! All one size in terms of width and depth - square and stackable but in different heights so really useful. They are food grade plastic so you could use them for storing food if you wanted to (I prefer not to, but its personal). Just thought I would post a tip and encourage others to stop these boxes going to landfill!

What a great idea!  Thanks for that, I might just ask tomorrow smile


OOooh! I love love love boxes to put things in! x
