Here's what inspired me:
Do your toothpicks look like that? I contained the mess in the ol' standby plastic sandwich bag. Nice, huh?
A while back, I ran out of some spice or another, so I saved the glass jar and lid. Pinterest has convinced me not to throw things like that away, because there WILL be a use for it somewhere along the way. My DH is soooo happy about that. Haha! So, when I grabbed my messy toothpick box out yesterday for another project, it hit me!
I HAVE THE PERFECT CONTAINER FOR THIS!
MY OLD SPICE JAR!
I practically ran to the bedroom to grab it. And this is what happened after I inserted some of the toothpicks in the jar...
This is showing promise!
Viola! DIY/repurposed toothpick holder!
Now, doesn't that just make your heart turn flips?! It's so simple! Now, I can actually just keep this near my cook-top on the counter, for whenever I need them! Obviously, this doesn't hold ALL 750 toothpicks, but it will take me forever to go through this jar. So I just hid my ugly, falling-apart box back in the drawer with the rest of the toothpicks for when I need to refresh the supply in my jar.
I love feeling even just slightly organized!!
