We must have bought hundreds of the things and they are always getting broken or lost.
So often when we're out and about I hear
"Mummy - have you got a hair clip? my hair's in my eyes"
Sometime I do.
Sometimes I don't.
Occasionally I manage to find one in with the fluff at the bottom of my handbag or in the little rubber bit around the gear stick in my car but now I have a solution!!
The girls love a tic tac - occasionally L (age 4) will ask for a Tic Tac for her pudding (yes - just one!) and I often have these empty pots lying around.
Surely they must have a 'use'.
No more hunting around in the depths of my handbag for a clip when we're out and about now!
Now this did have my husband (the + 1 of my blog) saying "why on earth are you taking a photo of an empty tic tac box with your phone". Well my love - now you know!
Any other uses for an empty tic tac box anyone? Or should I just recycle my next one like normal people?!
