So where do I keep all these extras since I have no real pantry and my cabinets have to double as that?
Mark this down as a day in history because never, everevereverever, has everything I've just picked up actually fit me. However each of these dresses fit me fabulously. The grand total for all of the dresses was only $75 (for seven dresses!!) so for that price I should keep them all. I mostly only wear dresses in warm weather anyway because they're just so pretty and feminine. Of course that's just not practical or feasible as summer is nearly over and some are only fun dresses and cannot be worn for church or work thus making it less appealing. So I'm going to narrow down the selection to just three, um, or maybe four.

I had several ideas for this little container: it would work in two of the three bathrooms with extra toiletires, toilet paper, wash clothes, etc; it would work in the living area of the great room with cute decorative rattan balls or pinecones, perhaps even a candle; it would work in my sewing room to keep incidentals looking tidy; and it could even work in an offiice space for envelopes and such a few small jars inside for pencils, etc.
However after all that thought I eneded up putting it in the kitchen. Seems te kitchen table is a dumping ground. Mail, school papers, correspondence, camera, receipts, tape from packing an item, etc. Now it can all go in this little bin to keep the "pile" small and manageable.
I've warned my boys that when it gets too full I'll start tossing so they'd better not leave anything "important" in there for too long.

The preschooler in my loves (loves!) Cinnamon Toast Crunch and my boys (and maybe me a little bit) love Lucky Charms. We often by Kroger varieties of these cereals but this is the real mccoy and in a huge double box.
Then there was this little ditty on an end cap near the pharmacy:
