Mission of Goodwill - Week #9

We are only a few weeks from October which means my weekly Mission of Goodwill will be going on holiday hiatus.

Only the posts will be going on hiatus, I still intend to go to Goodwill all the time.  I assume that if they don't see me for a few days, they'll send out a search party and I don't want to worry them.  I'm a thoughtful kind of girl.

This week I found this little jelly jar.


Old and needing a purpose.  I flew into action.  Well, OK... I didn't fly into action.  I sort of shuffled to the garage and got some sandpaper.  For me, that's as active as it gets.  Some sandpaper on the top and matches in the jar and I have a Pinterest-inspired storage item.  Matches and something to strike them on.  This is going in my survival pack for the zombies.

**I had a facebook comment that suggested putting the sandpaper on the underside of the lid... which is a great idea because if a monsoon occurs, your matches will still light just peachy.  I am thankful for my much-smarter-than-I readers. :)


And now, you must excuse me... I'm knee-deep in Halloween awesomeness.  I can't wait for you all to see it!

  3. I just want you to know that you have sucked 2 complete days from my life. I don't even remember how I landed on your blog but I've been glued to it for the past 2 days. Clicking "older posts", I'm back to last September's entries. Totally hooked! I have an overwhelming urge to go on a shopping spree at Lowe's and I need, NEED a jigsaw! I cannot wait for your 31 days of Halloween!!! Thanks so much for your commitment to this blog! <3

I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
