A great deal

I love these metal cannisters we got at Ikea--a couple bucks for the whole set. Now they hold our coffee: beans and ground. And the big one is for nasty leftover candy from holidays gone by. I'd like to throw it out, but Alex insists on keeping it in case he "needs" it.

these are so great! if you decide to throw at the large one, you can send it to me in ikea-less orlando. . .that's my favorite!

It's strange how that left over candy keeps poping up at my house. I swear I'm tossing it out and a few days later I'll find more some where else. i have to wonder if its multiplying! I love those little metal canisters.

It DOES multiply! And I swear, it's Alex that wants to keep it. I like chocolate. That's it. But he'll keep sticky, crusty old Jolly Ranchers, airplane pretzels and aged candy canes. Yuck. They used to just pile up on our limited kitchen counter space, but now, thanks to Ikea, we can hide them away nicely.
