If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen this post where I profess my love for cigar boxes. Two things surprised me about them (1) They are stupid cheap (I got a couple for $1 each, and the rest for free!) and (2) People don't seem to appreciate them! They literally come in all different sizes, shapes, and colors - from painted to stained to raw wood, and are perfect for gift boxes or storage for small things. I stopped into my local cigar shop a couple weeks ago because I couldn't FOR THE LIFE OF ME figure out how to refill my butane lighter. Turns out I was using the wrong fluid, but while I waited for the guy to finish filling it, I took a look around the shop at all the different cigars they had on display. When I asked if they had any empty, left-over boxes, the guy showed me what he had stacked behind the counter. Jackpot! I now have 4 boxes, and use them to store makeup, hair bobby pins/clips/bands, headbands, and first aid materials. I don't smoke (the lighter is mostly for candles), and was worried that the boxes would always smell like the cigars they used to hold, but they aired out pretty quickly.
