Have you ever made a purchase simply because the packaging appealed to you? If you have, perhaps you can relate to the purchase I made last night at Target.
My guy took one look at this bottle and asked what I intend to do with it. And I replied, I will drink the water and use the empty bottle as a decorative dispenser of some sort. Just add a bottle pourer or spout and you've instantly got a soap dispenser (love that idea from Martha Stewart).
Or I can turn it into a candelabra.
And that, my friends, is a great way to re-purpose a frivolous purchase.
