brought into the 21st century. I bought this old lunchbox with this project in mind when we went to Round Top last week. I had been seeing lots of “charging stations” in catalogs and stores lately and mentioned to my husband that it would be a good idea. I started thinking about what we might find that he could modify. We came across this cute little lunchbox and it was perfect. He put a power strip inside and now we have our chargers (cell phones, MP3 player, Palm Pilot) all plugged in and all we have to do is connect whatever we want to charge. He even put a switch on the back so we could turn it off instead of unplugging it all of the time. Isn’t he the best?! Now all I have to do is decide where to park this little gem so it will always be handy. And, I must decide -- to paint, or not to paint.
