Introduction: Reused Cardboard Containers
I haven't had time to create anything for the cardboard challange, but, as I sat here pondering what I could make, I realized I use recycled cardboard all the time. I save all kinds of stuff from glass jars and plastic bottles to cardboard and misc pieces of wire. Depending on the thickness of the cardboard it can be used to make an emergency gasket or template, as a padding for a drawing or storage/orginization. Cardboard boxes aren't the first choice for long term storage since the creation of plastic totes/bins but they still work and are usually a LOT cheaper, the smaller packaging make great orginizers

Step 3: Orginizing the Orginizers
ok, now you have a lot of small containers holding a lot of small stuff, you need to find ANOTHER box that the containers will fit in
Step 4: Convenience
You can also keep small containers of frequently used small objects nearby, the top of my curb rescued ancient monitor holds a box of change and a flashlight and a box with spare reading glasses of differeing strengths
