So, as you know, I cleaned out the hall closet in my house during Operation Organization. During my purging, I decided to make a “Party” box with all things needed for birthdays and other festivities. Things like number candles, birthday banners, noise makers, and colored paper goods. But then I found that I had leftover party supplies from the themed birthdays that we’ve had. You know, Batman, Superman, Toy Story, etc.
Now that the boys are older and I have gotten wiser. I don’t buy the themed paper products anymore because I’m always stuck with leftovers and I don’t know what to do with them.
That’s when I turned to the almighty internet. When in doubt, search it out!
@workandcats told me “We keep some in the car for when we have impromtu picnics in the park + napkins are useful if I run out of paper towels.” Not to mention having napkins in the car are great for those “accidental” spills that happen all too frequently!
Lindsay Hamer told me: “Napkins, I save for school lunches. I will pack a different one every time I make my kids lunch. (on “yucky” days. They are like fun party reminders.)” How sweet!!
