I was just looking around my computer area tonight and I realized that the item I use the most in here (besides the computer and like items) is the stark white Rubbermaid 3 drawer set on wheels I bought years ago when I didnt yet have the money for a file cabinet. Since then it's been one of our "just cant throw away" must haves for the office- it doesnt match the desks or the actual cabinets we've aquired, yet I cant toss it because its just so danged useful! If I didnt have it, where would I put my extra legal pads and my photo paper? Where would I put manilla envelopes and camera film? I cant even begin to imagine what I would do without my $14 drawer set from Walmart. The same goes for my cheapie cheap shower caddy- how did anyone survive without these useful liitle things? I can barely remember the days of old when I used to dodge shampoo bottles diving off the edge of the tub when I had soap in my eyes. What are some things youve gotten your money's worth from? Big stuff like cars and electronics dont count!

Big stuff like cars and electronics dont count! post-its, empty altoids tins are great for everhthing small as are 7-day vitamin cases, pre-owned purple cognac bags, tissue paper for stuffing in shoes, wrapping paper & contact paper for wrapping/protecting books, Cross pens & pencils...must have almost a dozen of those, silk scarves from the flea markets & thrift stores, small hold-everything purses with that velcro-closure pocket for my cell phone, mini mag-lites, mini-staplers & business card hold-punchers, magic tape, white-out tape, that caddy you use I use in the kitchen for all silverware on top, utensils, vitamins, baggies, plasticware, etc., freezer bags for cosmetics when traveling, can't live without my hair pick & vent brush, old vitamin bottles are great for 'sample sizes' of shampoo so I don't get bruised by falling savings size bottles in the shower, lucite cutting board & my favorite knives...& potato peelers...Crest whitening dental floss works, Sally's sells this Younger Lips cream & Sealed with a Kiss fixative that I didn't think would work but is very very effective...spice lip liner by avon, garden botanika lipstick chubby pencils & my Diamond Deb nail file.
