Once or twice a year I go through all our belongings to see what we have accumulated and what we can do without. All the items we don’t need are taken to the thrift store so someone else can use them.

Today I came across an American Tourister makeup case (circa 1960’s or 1970’s) that my mother had given me. I believe she picked it up at a thrift store a few years ago. It is in pristine shape, but not something I would use to travel with, although some people are choosing to use vintage luggage these days.

I thought about sending it to a new home, but then I decided to repurpose it. That is something Sonny and I often do with older things.  I got the idea to use it as a crafting case to hold all of my card making stamps, ink pads, paint and brushes. It couldn’t have worked out better. Before I had everything stuck into separate plastic boxes with labels. Now all of my crafting supplies are handy and it looks nice sitting on the shelf. What do you have around your house that can be repurposed?
