My Pill Boxes

I have a few boxes at home. No, I am not a pill popper but I do own a few pill boxes and I find them cheap and useful. In fact, they are stashed at my dresser table in my room.

So what do I use them for?

I use them to organize my accessories such as bracelets, necklaces and mostly my many pair of earrings. Yes, these Pill Boxes are mainly my earrings storage space.

Reasons on why I like these Pill Boxes are simple:

1. Just The Right Size - They are the perfect size to keep earrings. And you can actually buy different sizes of pill box to fit your earrings. I use a larger craft box to keep my bracelets (bottom left photo), but for earrings, the simple pill box does the trick. Maybe because I don't own large over-sized earrings. But if you do, just grab a craft box and it should fit.

2. Keeping Dust At Bay - I prefer these than the more nicer-looking earring display stands, with the main reason that I can keep dust at bay with all my earrings tucked and snapped shut inside the pill boxes.

3. Easy To Locate - These transparent boxes make it easy to locate your earrings. One glace and you see it. And if you have hundreds of them, you can even buy more pill boxes and sort them according to design, colour, etc.

4. Not So Breakable - These are plastic pill boxes. So they are not as fragile and not so easily breakable even if you drop them on the ground - thus provide a cushion for your earring in case you drop the box.

5. Cheap - I got these pill boxes for less than RM5 each. They are cheap and economical.

6. Save Space - These pill boxes are mostly square or in rectangular shapes so they are stackable. Therefore, it saves precious space. I don't like my dressing table to be cluttered so that it does not take up much space.

I'm sure there are many more reasons why I love my pill boxes. But these are what came off my mind for now. Hope by reading this, you get an idea of how to store your earrings in a cheap, dust-free and simple place.
