During the recent packing and moving out of my current school building, I found myself with an abundance of milk crates. I just couldn't part with them...the resourceful side of me had to use them in some sort of creative way. This was both the frugal and OCD side of me.
So I started doing some research...
I found several ideas for what to do with milk crates on Pintrest (of course), as well as some other gardening and organizing blogs.
I used a few as end tables on balconies, containers for dog toys and footstools.
The herb garden was the idea I was the most excited about.
It was creative and it also fell into one of my New Year's resolutions.
Now that I see that this process is successful, I'll be adding more crates and increasing my herb inventory.
