We have a thread about saving money. Here's another one that involves a commom household subject!
So, I am doing spring cleaning and getting rid of a lot of junk. I'm trying REALLY hard to part with practically everything I don't NEED, as I already have enough stuff anyway. However, I came across this dusty (literally!) trinket, and for some reason, I want to keep it. It only cost $1 at the dollar store, so if I got rid of it, no big loss.... but it's so cute! I have no idea why I'm attached to it. Yes, it's shiny (irridescent glaze), and my favorite colors. But I'm not really a beach/tropical sort of person when it comes to decor, and it doesn't match anything else!
I was going to put it on my shelf with the other collectibles and trinkets...but not sure how to arrange it so it blends in nicely, rather than sticking out like a sore thumb.
Then I figured maybe I could put it next to my TV... it's sort of hidden from general view, but where I can see it often (ironically I don't watch much TV, but it is right across from the computer desk)
As I clean out more stuff, I'll probably have other stuff I'll want to get ideas for. Or if you just want to give random ones that have worked for you and other people might like, post that too!
