$$Frugal Friday Tip$$

Design Team Member Kimmarie's Fugal Friday tip is an easy peasy one.

She said, "I am tired of misplacing my loose buttons. I know I must have plenty of storage spaces, I think too many is the problem. lol I like to see what I have instead of hiding things in drawers and containers. I am very bad at labeling my storage. Each month I throw away a few medicine bottles when I refill hubby's medicine. I thought to myself "what a waste!' I decided to alter these containers to store my buttons in. All I did was find some fun Sassafrass paperscraps to use, ink up the edges with my brown stazon ink and adhere it with glue dots. I also punched out some paper for the top of the containers and on one I added ribbon with glue dots. I want to make 6 total. His medicine comes in all different size bottles so it works out great for me! Do you have any household items that you alter for storage? How about a Frugal Friday Tip? If so, email us at scrappinpsycho@live.msn we would love to put your creation on our blog."


  1. WOW! That's a great tip! You could easily color coordinate your buttons that way.

  2. Kimmarie,

    These are soooo cute. Almost makes me want to have to have pill bottles to alter! Almost!
