Crayons and kids go together like peanut butter and jelly. So do their messes! One thing that I have found to be helpful (no matter how young or old the child) to keep crayons neat is an inexpensive household object you probably have around your home. It may even be on your night stand or in your bathroom.
It's an empty box of facial tissues - like Kleenex, Puffs, or Scotties. You can use either size whether it's the rectangle or the square size box. Both work well. My kids have even brought the box in the van to use on longer trips. Their hands fit perfectly in the hole as do the crayons. The crayons have a nice neat home and they stay neat for the most part. For the younger kids the square box is just the right size for them to carry wherever they color and to put back in place.
We like reducing, reusing, and recycling around here and this "hack" is on our go-to list!

Don't you like it when something goes your way? Isn't it a great feeling to save money and have fun at the same time? Well we like to give "shout outs" where shout outs are due and do we have a shout out for you today.
If you have never looked into an auto club plan because your manufacturer provides road side service, we encourage you to rethink that thought. We belong to an auto club plan that not only takes care of us when we are stranded but it also saves us money and makes our public roads safer through research.
Recently we needed a rental car and through my auto club they saved me $200 on a 6-day rental! They also saved me over $600 on auto insurance and have great rates for CDs and special offers on credit cards. They usually also save me more money on hotels than other travel websites. They could stop there but they are so about helping the public and about road safety they do even more. Their tests and research about all things driving help our local and federal governments make wise decisions.
Wouldn't you want to be a part of this auto club? To make the deal sweeter, my cell phone company pays for my auto club plan. And just recently they added my husband for FREE! I can't help but giving a shout out to AAA and all the benefits they give their customers.
I'm a confessed penny pincher and have found AAA to be one of the best bargains out there. Contact your local AAA office today and start getting all the benefits of membership too.
Happy driving and happier saving!
