5 Ways To Use A Small Box For Organizing




Sometimes we look at small storage containers and think, what can I do with this? Well I have you covered. I have 5 ways you can use those small storage boxes/containers. 
This small wood box is actually a planter box I got from the target dollar section for about 3 dollars. I was looking for a small wood box but all the ones I came across were the wrong wood grain I wanted. Then I found these beauties and I snatched the last 2 I saw.
Office Supplies
This can be great for all those pens, scissors or just random office supplies that sit on your desk everyday. I added a small acrylic pencil box that nestled perfectly inside. 


Makeup

Makeup storage can be tricky sometimes because f how messy it can get. These wood boxes came lined with a plastic liner. Perfect to store small makeup or makeup palettes.




Nighstand Essentials 

I always have loose stuff  I want easy access to next to my bed, so why not add a small wood box or cute container and put your bed time essentials. Some times I need a hair tie, chap stick, a nail file, lotion or oil etc.


Toiletries 

Bathrooms products always need a good home. I like to put all my everyday items close to the sink in a small container for easy access, especially if I'm in a rush. 



Small Travel Bag

I tend to have a lot of small travel bags. There one of my favorite things to impulse buy. But they can also be a cute display in a small storage box. 




Hope you found these organizing tips helpful.
until next time

My Dental Hygiene Routine | Braces



One thing I love, are pearly white, clean teeth. They just make me so happy! A clean, bright smile will light up your entire day. For me it does! Your dental hygiene routine changes a bit when you have braces. Flossing becomes...well a challenge I will say. But I found so many helpful products and tools that make dental hygiene a breeze.


Flossing

Lets start with the most challenging, FLOSSING! I use a water flosser and also dental floss specifically designed for braces.






I use the water flosser first. It gets rid of any food that may be stuck in your brackets and it feels amazing on my gums. I will say, if you use it, start on the lowest level first and work your way to 10. It can make your gums a little sore if you go in full speed. Now that I've been using it for over a year I only use the 10 speed.


These are the coolest flossers I've ever seen. Hence their name is SUPERfloss. They have a pointed plastic end for easy access into your braces and under your gums. These have been a life saver and they make flossing 5 times faster.

Tooth Brush

I switch between my electric Oral B Toothbrush and my new Bamboo Woobamboo (Natural) Toothbrush. Both I love, It just depends on my mood and how my teeth look, and feel.

Tooth Paste

I like Dr Bronners Toothpaste. Its not to strong and doesn't have a whitening agent. Which I try to avoid until I get my braces off.











Mouth Wash


I use this mouth wash because It does an amazing job at keeping your breath fresh for hours.
