Chipboard storage

You know how it is when you buy something you don't need, just because you love it?

That's how it was when I spotted these boxes at a JDRF garage sale last year. I had no particular use or need for them, but I loved the color, pattern, sturdiness, and 5x5 size.


The boxes have been sitting in my scrapbooking area since then, waiting to discover their purpose in life.
I recently decided to move my chipboard shapes from a basket to the six drawers in the boxes. I don't have a ton of shapes right now, so they fit perfectly.

It wouldn't really matter what was in them. I love them!

Those are really cute! I'm the same way about NEEDING to buy (...or make) little storage "things" and then trying to find something to store in them, lol!
