New Use for Pretty Gift Boxes

I’ve diagnosed many a client with pretty packaging syndrome. It’s the compulsion to hold onto empty boxes, long after the original purchase, because they like the way the packaging looks.

I’ll admit; I can’t always fault them. These days, boxes and packaging can be even prettier than the contents.

But stop the presses! I’ve come up with a solution! Use all those pretty little boxes to organize in drawers. They are perfect for wrangling:

  • Cosmetics in your bathroom vanity
  • Jewelry in shallow bureau drawers
  • Buttons and sewing supplies
  • Office supplies, like paperclips and rubber bands in a desk drawer
  • Odds and ends, like batteries and matches, in a “junk drawer”

Not to mention they are a perfect cheap alternative to traditional drawer organizers.

Organizing Obsession: Foldable Hunter Boots

While we're enjoying a relatively warm and snow-free New York City winter, I can’t help but think that some crazy cold weather might be lurking ahead.

You know what that means… Slushy city streets that wreak havoc on otherwise stylish shoes. What can a girl do? Wear some Hunter Boots.

 Which leads me to my latest space-saving obsession: Foldable Hunter Boots. You heard me right! They now make these babies in a collapsible version that will fit any small space, especially crowded coat closets. 

They’re also perfect for your next trip to the English countryside. Very Princess Kate.
