Anytime I can reuse something for a new use, I get pretty excited. We used old corn crib boards for the ceiling in my office, old lumber for our farmhouse table, and again for our headboard. I find myself doing this a lot with other areas in the house, not just the furniture!
My camera bag can sometimes be the dark hole where odds and ends go to die. I have spent so much time digging in there for things until I finally got smart about how I organized my camera gear. My camera cards were the smallest things in my bag (and forever being lost) so I wanted something more noticeable and larger to store them in.
My idea? An Altoids tin. Take out the mints (there were a few left in mine!) and wipe clean with a wet paper towel. Allow to dry.
Then, add some fun washi tape to the top, adding a pop of color and personality.
You can wrap the ends along the side of the tin and into the lid so the tape is secure.
It’s compact yet fits in my hand so my cards aren’t getting lost in the bottom of my bag. It’s colorful and noticeable, and it’s being reused into something new!
Speaking of reusing something, Energizer® now makes Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries. They are the worlds first AA batteries made with 4% recycled batteries while being Energizer® longest lasting alkaline battery. I also carry them in my camera bag because my external flash uses AA batteries, and it used to be a lot of them! Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries hold up to 12 years in storage, making them the perfect battery to have on hand.
If you are looking to purchase them, I found them at my local WalMart on a display near the checkouts.
What will you use your Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ for?
