A few months back, we braved the attic storage and unearthed a relic from the summer of '94: our old collection of rubber stamps from a crafty camp workshop (which would explain why so many of these stamps are of grasshoppers and other bugs). After donating the stamps to a nearby elementary school, we decided to keep the box: an old letterpress printing tray.

We've since left the box in the closet and pleasantly discovered a new purpose for it. Thanks to all the little nooks, this tray perfectly holds all the odds and ends that have accumulated in our wardrobe: safety pins, extra coat buttons, leftover mini spools from missing sewing kits, necklace pendants, and even a pile of pennies.
How do you organize your small stuff?
