Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.
For the past ten years or so, I’ve collected rocks, shells, and sand from places I’ve been. I’ve also had friends bring me back bits of shells or sand from their travels, too. My collection sat in a huge glass jar up until early this year when the jar cracked. Large jars like these are often spendy, so I’ve been keeping my eye out for a deal.
This past Monday, some girlfriends and I made a trip to IKEA and can you guess what I found? A bunch of cheap jars! I decided this time to separate my collection out into three different sized jars. Each of these were just about $3.99. As you can see the bigger two are full, but the one I decided to put the sand in still has room for more!
The little snails I’ve had for years and I decided to add them into the mix for fun.
If you decide to do something similar?
1) Be careful when setting the rocks and shells into the jars – they are glass, after all.
2) Remember what good ol’ Mr. Covey says: put the big rocks in first.
