I have an envelope size expandable coupon file container with a rubber band & button type closure. You can still find these for sale in some grocery stores.

An old one is in my car holding all my pertinent car information.

In the day and age of smart phones, there's absolute zero need for coupon containers in my life. (TBH, I never paper coupon'd well.)

It is in such good shape, however, that I'm really not desiring to toss it and thought you ladies may have already found another upcycle use for them in your own lives. Perhaps something homeschool related? Another organizer of sorts? Spill! Tell me you ideas, please.


Peace

Maybe use it for those special papers Jonah does that you want to keep?


I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~

The kids each have one for their art projects. When it is full, they have to cull through.

I use one for our medical receipts before I submit them. I love that it is closed and I don't have to worry about them being shuffled and lost.

It's a bit small for Jonah's artwork, unfortunately. I ended up with a flat box storage option for those.

Upcycling doesn't always mean reusing the thing as-is. Sometimes it means upcycling the pieces as parts of other things. Maybe the accordian sides work for one project. Maybe the latch works for something else.

The Socialization "Issue" ... This discussion was pulled out of the "archives". Back in November 1997, Kevin and Kate Megill posted this outstanding reply to a question about the socialization (or lack of socialization) of homeschooled children.
