Could I use the thrifted Polly Pocket wardrobe for beads and findings storage?

I love to come up with unusual ways to store my stuff. I store my wrapping paper in an old cane wine bottle holder. I put my glues bottles in an old iron milk bottle holder. I put my pens in an old jug. Other supplies in old chocolate tins. Ribbon in glass candy jars. That kinda thing.

But I’ve never used a Polly Pocket toy wardrobe before! What do you think? Too childish?

I might use my daughter’s mini kitchennette as storage for my notepads/cards once she’s too big for it (she’s 15 months and already a little too tall for it!)

While thrifting today I found this Estee Lauder tote that I might use as a file holder! It’s stiff, green and white and absolutely me. (And it was only $9.35)

It’s a pretty stiff tote, the kind I like. (Not a fan of slouchy totes/bags.) It has been great since it can stand on its own.
