Coffee and Me

My love of excellent coffee has had a huge impact on my life! I have been known to travel great distances to get a good cup! I even owned a coffee shop for a couple of years! So it gives me a kick to be able to use some of the many coffee tins generated here for a neat storage solution in my workspace!
I positioned the tins to fit well into the space. Then I secured the stacks with elastic bands, before placing them in the shelf!
I love re-using what's already here!

I'm an Illy girl too. Boy what a racket, that coffee business. Drug lords should quit what they're doing immediately and start planting coffee. That's what the world wants, would play any price for.

I use one a week, the round ones. That's 52 cans. And I keep them too.

I'd really like to have a cafe in South Africa... I'd love to hear about your experiences! -X

This is wonderful! I love using 'throwaway' stuff to create something new and useful. It reminds me (and you have now inspired me to post on it - maybe next week) of the solution I found to the myriad of earrings, rings and brooches cluttering my dressing table drawer ...

What a brilliant idea! I wonder what it looks like if you use different shapes (round tins and square).
