Tissue Liberation

Until reading on AT about debranding your home it hadn't occurred to me how many brands I was exposed to in my own home every day. As its winter here in Australia, everyone seems to have a cough, cold or flu so having tissues near by is a must. Unfortunately, our tissue boxes are coated in brand names and unimpressive designs which made me go hunting for the perfect alternative. There were some interesting choices that I came across but crochet or seashells aren't my style. Then I stumbled across the Toro Tissue Ring which was featured here last July...

I was interested to see how it would work for us but not keen on the $36 [don't even get me started on the mark up of products over here]. After a while, I noticed our curtain rings looked similar in size and turns out they do the job perfectly and even matches our coffee table. Yes, yes, what about the dust I hear you all ask. We're going through tissues so rapidly at the moment dust doesn't have a chance to settle. What I'm really thankful for is that this common cold is no longer sponsored by Kleenex.
