          Duh! DIY/Repurposed toothpick holder!

          I had one of those moments yesterday--the kind of moment where you find yourself saying, "Duh! Why didn't I think of that before! It happened when I was getting my disheveled box of toothpicks out of the drawer. Now, I'll admit...I haven't Googled this to see if anyone else has done it, or looked around on Pinterest to see if someone's already pinned a similar idea. So, if someone else has done something similar, I don't know, because I haven't looked for it.

          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!


          Oh boy!


          EUREKA!!


          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!!
