Happy Friday: Be Our Guest Jar

With all the deals you post, I’ve been getting little samples and trial sized stuff (from the beauty boxes). I purchased a jar at the thrift store and using the chalkboard labels you posted the other day, I made an inexpensive guest bathroom decoration.

Now I have a place to store all that stuff and guests won’t have to worry they forgot something! Thanks Collin and team!!!

    I have a very similiar jar of samples and mini hotel bottles in my guest bathroom. I LOVE the label idea though. That would make it more obvious what it’s there for… and I’m a Beauty and the Beast fan ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Kroc

    Super cute

  27. ChattyLinda

    I dont know how much you paid for that jar at the thrift store, but they have them in glass or plastic at the Dollar store, it would also be a cute hostess gift or get the plastic one and put some baby shampoo and baby powder, etc. In it..

  28. Dayna

    I love this idea!

  29. JES

    Very cute and thoughtful. I hate having to ask for something I may have forgotten when visiting people.

  30. kath

    This is awesome! Too bad we have a tiny Ny bathroom with pratically no counter space except for the sink lol

  31. PrincessMom

    what a cute idea! Definitely going to file it away for future use! ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Becky

    I do that too with all my samples from pinchme and companies send me in our cabin we rent. I put them in a little basket I decorated. You should see their happy faces when they see all these goodies. It is so much fun. Ha!

  33. Suzanne H

    I found a hanging thing with little clear pockets at Goodwill a while back. I have it hanging on the closet door in our guest bedroom with all kinds of samples, etc. in it. I also framed our WiFi user name and password and have it in our guest room as well. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on both!
