    Repurposed golf item - ideal for small storage

    If you happen to know an avid golfer, ask about the little plastic boxes that cleats come in. I just discovered that my DH has been tossing them in the recycle bin. They're clear plastic, close securely and have a neat little hanging loop on them that is useful if you have a pegboard, or could be cut off if you just want to put them in a drawer. They're big enough to hold quite a few bobbins or other little things. I appreciated the fact that the labels even peeled off easily. The brand name was Pulsar, but I think there are other kinds that are similarly boxed. Just thought I'd pass along a little heads up.

    The only person I know who golfs is also a crafter - bet she uses them already! Darn.

    Those look awesome. I love anything that can hang on my pegboard and not contribute to the jumble on my tables/counters/floor... My FIL is a golfer. I might have to hit him up for a few of these.

    They are great for holding binding clips-the hair clip kind.
