I’ve had three pocket-sized metal boxes from a tea promotion in a kitchen cabinet for many years. Although they have cute designs on the lids, they never were very useful because each of them is so small that it can’t hold more than a half-dozen teabags.

Three small metal boxes for tea, with colorful pictures on the lids. 

I never had any occasion to carry teabags around in a pocket or purse, so these little tins haven’t done much besides take up space on the cabinet shelf. Sometimes I would put a few teabags in one of them if the box from the store was nearly empty; but really, they’re just in the way. Even if they’re cute and cheerful, that doesn’t mean I should keep them forever!

About Clutter Comedy: Every Sunday (which I envision as a day of rest after a productive week of de-cluttering) I post a Clutter Comedy article describing my most memorable clutter discovery of the week. Other bloggers who wish to join in are welcome—just post a link in the comments! There’s no need to publish any “before” photos of your clutter, if they are too embarrassing. The idea is simply to get motivated to clean it up, while having a bit of fun too!
