Hey, hey! Happy Sunday to you!
I'm here today with some helpful hints on what to do with the boxes that your Attic Box arrives in. We know that, after several months of receiving the box, they tend to pile up and you're left wondering what int he hell you're going to do with them. You don't want to throw them away, but what will you do with them? Read on for six ideas to repurpose these boxes and give them new life!
I hope these tips have given you some creative ideas of how you can repurpose your Attic Box. The main idea is to reuse them in some fashion-- don't just throw them away!
As an addition to the post, reuse the crinkle paper that comes int he boxes. Especially with the holidays coming up, you can potentially reuse the box, the crinkle paper, and the bags to pack gifts in. The bags can be used as wrapping paper for small gifts!
Share your repurposed Attic Box photos with us on Instagram @bluespiderbooks. Be sure to tag us so we will see the pictures. You can do this on Facebook and Twitter as well. We look forward to seeing them!
Hey, hey! We've got something new today!
As some of you may know, we previously offered one-time (no subscription required) boxes for kids that included several secondhand books and some pretty cool stuff along with it. We decided to pull those from our store and donate the books that we had on reserve for those boxes (--these were donated to help fill classroom libraries in Hattiesburg, MS--) and have since revamped our idea for the boxes for young readers.
Introducing Blue Spider Books for Kids!
These boxes are available in the Blue Spider Books store now, in limited supply. Go ahead and grab your young reader a gift box today! Whether aged 8-10 or 10-12 and up, there's never been a better time to foster a love of reading. And with additional goodies like mini Dr. Seuss notebooks or mustache-shaped keychains, these gift boxes are guaranteed to get a smile!
Add Blue Spider Books for Kids to our holiday shopping list! These boxes ship out weekly; no waiting for the subscription shipping date to roll around, and no commitment!
Hey there, Ladies & Gents!
I wanted to reach out quickly to send a note about the tea (especially the loose leaf varieties) that we include in our monthly Attic Box and Basics shipments. We recently received a review that mentioned that the tea samples were "lacking" and would usually only yield one cup.
Before tossing out that tea, consider steeping it more than once. Yes, you can use the same bit of tea for steeping more than one cup of tea. Sometimes, depending on the type of tea, the flavor is actually at its peak after multiple steeps.
So, here's a hint-- stash that tea bag or infuser full of leaves in an airtight container and use it again for the afternoon tea time.
With the individually bagged varieties, oftentimes you can read on their website to find the brewing recommendations. Discover and learn from the samples you receive. Not only do you get to find flavors that you may have never tried before, but you get to experiment with various brewing methods.
Give it a whirl and let us know how your tea fares after its second (or third) steeping.
[Be sure to check out geekyteas.com for more marvelous tea blends like the one found in October's L. Frank Baum Attic Boxes. Donna, the tea blending aficionado at Geeky Teas, recommends getting multiple uses from the 2 oz sample we included.]
