Great crates

I have had these wood boxes for a number of years, stacked in a corner, unused. But this past summer, as I decluttered, I re-evaluated my collections, deciding whether to put them to good use or get rid of them. With these crates there was never any question; I would find a use for them. And I did, in my sewing room.
Stacked one on top of the other they now hold my bags of pre-cut quilt strips. So easy I don't know why I didn't do this sooner.

My dad used to work in the fruit market when apples were shipped in boxes. I have some of them still. And Coke boxes and orange boxes too.
I'd never throw mine away. They hold all my books.
In fact I once saw them being sold for $50.00 a piece.
I think they're worth more than that and I guess you agree.
