    Those wonderful empty tissue boxes

    I have found a way to tame the all-over-the-floor or knoted-in the-container roll of cut binding. Enter the wonderful empty kleenex box. Roll the cut binding in a loose roll and put it in a kleenex box and let it feed out of the opening. Works great.

    Sew Smart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just went into the bathroom and snagged the 2-3 tissues from empty box and tucked it on the shelf in my sewing room. I usually put the roll in my lap and depending on what I am wearing it moves ok, but usually ends up on the floor, I roll over it with my chair, the dog or cat pounce on it.

    I use an empty tissue box on my drier to tuck in the lint from the lint trap.

    Good idea!
    I use empty kleenex boxes to store used dryer sheets for crumb work!
    Also, to store folded plastic grocery bags.
