Heres a tip for the next time your child gets a toy with great packaging like Melissa & Doug!
Hip2Save reader Sindhoori had a brilliant epiphany that easily transformed the packaging from her son’s Christmas gift into a drawer insert. With just a couple of tweaks, she was able to effectively organize makeup, jewelry, and more! 🙌
This is such a fantastic idea considering a basic bamboo drawer organizer can you run you about $20 on Amazon!
One’s trash is another one’s treasure…
My son got a Melissa & Doug’s wooden train car set as a Christmas gift. He immediately discarded the wooden tray and was happy playing with the train. I quickly transformed that tray into an organizer with the help of some small cardboard pieces. The good thing is, I can give that tray back to my son at any time 🙂
