Swiffer Box = Summer Shoe Storage

Before you throw away an empty Swiffer mop pad box, here is a new use for it:

This shallow container with a see-through lid is perfect for storing flip-flops.


It could also be used for storing jewelry, makeup, or any other small items that need organizing.

In the comments below, share what you would store in this container and any other upcycling ideas.
