Upcycled Jam Jar as Make Up Brush Holder or Desk Tidy

by - August 18, 2016

One of the reasons I decided to go minimal is to save money. You may read countless articles online on how to save money but the key to saving real money is by going minimal. I kind of skate over the topic lightly because people's perception of minimalism is a complete lifestyle change but it's actually something you can do right now within 10 minutes. Don't believe me? Check out this video I made recently.

When you cut down on the item you own and the amount of stuff you buy you'll feel a weight being lifted off your shoulders. People often ask me what I do when I really need something. Well that depends on what you see as a need. If I truly need something I'll buy it. One way I get around this is by questioning everything I buy and one of them is storage.

Don't you find it strange that people buy storage just so they can tidily store away things they don't use? It just doesn't make sense!

I make an effort to upcycle anything I would usually throw away for a new purpose. I turn jam or pasta sauce jars into pen pots or cover my my Amazon boxes with self adhesive vinyl so they look just as good as the ikea boxes.
Tweet me photos of your upcyled stuff!

Here I've taken the lid and sticker off a jam jar and it's transformed into a pretentious brush holder and no one would be any the wiser of its humble origins.
