The Treasure State

While in Montana, I decided to copy something my sister-in-law did. She had this jar in her guest bathroom, full of travel size soaps and trial size Bath and Body Works lotions. I liked it for several reasons: 1} The soap and lotion were functional for her guests, 2} I love anything en masse, 3} She had all the same kinds of soap, and only 2 scents of lotions, so the color palette was pleasing.
When I got home, I found the jar at Target, like she told me. And wouldn't you know, its official name is the "Montana Canister."  No joke.  I found the soap online after doing a search.
I quite like it with just the soap, so I may not even bother with the lotions.  We don't really have a lot of guests anyway, and the lotion would just be wasted by my kids.  But they do need soap every now and then.  I can justify that.

Cool idea. I may copy it for the students at school. I have a lot of hotel shampoos, soaps, lotions that they would appreciate using.
