Around 10 boxes formerly part-filled with tea are now flattened and in the recycling thanks to this handy yellow file drawer. Originally purchased for our wedding in September, this box from Hindsvik‘s shop has been sitting around my office with nothing in it ever since it arrived as a part of a package from Michigan back in October. Not sure what I would do with it in the apartment, I brought it home on Friday to see if it might be of some use. Less than 24-hours later, this old file box has a new calling.
Tom and I have been dreaming of a tea box for a while now, since it always seems like we have at least one million boxes of tea each with 2 tea bags inside, all of which tend to topple to the floor every time we open the tea cupboard’s door.
Online searches for a tea box turned up a few, but most of them (according to reviews) don’t actually fit the average teabag inside. After coming up dry on the web, I considered making a teabox myself from wood. That thought didn’t last long due to my wood working experience and lack of equipment.
Zero effort required, not only does this box fit perfectly in our tea cupboard, it is also—unlike the aforementioned actual tea storage boxes—the exact right height for tea bags:
If you’re interested in a box of your own, Hindsvik still has a few metal numbered drawers available.
