judging a book by its cover

I am a sucker for packaging, and I think all everyday items, such as garbage cans, utensil holders, pencils, sandwich bags, you name it, should be cute or pleasing to the eye. I mean, why not? So, when I saw these cute household items at the store the other day, they quickly landed in my shopping cart:


Paper towels & Gladware containers!

    Oohhh, very nice! I’m happy to see that household product companies are finally starting to update their designs.
    How about Kleenex boxes, now? That’s the one I’m waiting for.

    I am SO with you on packaging! I’ve been known to buy stuff not ‘really’ essential just because I liked how it looked! 😉 We don’t use paper towels but those gladwares look pretty neat. 🙂

    Cute gladware.
    I once bought ziplock? cups which were made of sturdy blue plastic and a nifty top that allowed you to either drink from it regularly or pop a straw into a special straw hole. And it was good for hot beverages without that plastic taste.
    This stuff is all so seasonal and short lived, though, so sometimes I go a bit nuts and buy more stuff when I know I don’t need it.

    I must have those paper towels – what brand are they?

    You are such an enabler! I love/hate you and your penchant finding and sharing adorable packaging.

    Jan stole my thunder on the ugly Kleenex box conundrum, but if you find any that are this side of horrendous, please do share! I love the paper towel design you selected, so I’ll trust your judgement.

  12. Laura says:

    Man, now I want those super adorable polka dot containers! Very cute! Thanks for sharing the prettiness.

  13. Brooke says:

    Here, here! Love those cute designs.
    I also believe that good simple design doesn’t have to be expensive. I only wish more companies believed the same thing…

    Those paper towels are outstanding! Do tell where you discovered them so that we can all (attempt to) be as cool as you!

  15. Lisa says:

    Oh, those totally would have gone home with me too… those marketers are very, very smart!

    i ALWAYS agonize and deliberate over the paper towel designs, it drives my husband mad. but i refuse to come home with the roll that has stupid sailboats or country crap. very nice fine. i saw with mine own eyes a most excellent set of four glasses at walmart with a similar polkdadot pattern. if there are dots on it, im buying it!
