store headphones in a mint container - The Burlap Bag

Now if they end up at the bottom of my purse, I don’t have to worry about them getting squashed. They’ll be safe in their little box – and they are less likely to get tangly because they are all snug!

If you already have your own way of storing your headphones – awesome. If not, keep the container next time you buy mints! (and if this helps you, then yay, my blog post was a success!)

    And, it’ll make your earphones smell minty fresh! Goodbye ear-wax smell! (Ok, I don’t know if earwax has a smell, but you get my point!)

    I like to store my thumbtacks in a mint container…

  4. Erica says:

    Fabulous idea! This will also keep it from tangling with my yarn!

  5. LOVE IT! I’m going to go buy some Altoids and then eat all of them so I can put my headphones in the tin!

    And you have a good reason for hanging onto that cool tin. I used to keep all my Altoids tins because, well, they are just so useable. I purchased some little ipod “socks” awhile bak which are quite narrow but stretch to accommodate an origianl ipod. That is ehat I have used to store my earbuds for years now. I can easily squeeze them inyo my camera bag. Great idea for the tins!

    This is the best (and most simple) use I’ve seen for a mint container! I’m pretty excited about it.

    I used to collect mint boxes, so upset that I threw them all away recently when I’m finding all of thee cool things to do with them. Love this idea!

  12. Lindsay says:

    This is perfect. I love those mint boxes, they’re so useful and I find them pretty as well. YOU SHOULD BE EXCITED, this is cute and useful!
