While out on Plum Island, I drove by a charming store front and decided to stop in. Feast your eyes on the Plum Island Soap Company! Aside from a large selection of bath soaps and skincare products, this place was a visual delight.
See what I’m saying? Now if you’re easily overwhelmed with “stuff”, this may not be your cup of tea. I actually feel like organizing my house when I see how nicely stacked the products are. Inspiring, isn’t it? Maybe I can finally apply some Marie Kondo tidying methodology.
What’s wicked cool is that the products are all 100% natural and they are handmade daily on site. Seriously, how awesome is that? I love supporting local businesses when I can.
One product that caught my eye is for the men in your life appropriately named “The Man Can”.
I am all for visual presentation and love how this gift set comes in a tin paint can. It contains bar soap, shave gel, bay rum oil, hand butter and a body accessory. So what’s the price? $48. Literally grab it and go.
Now just think of all the various things you could do with spare paint can. I’m imagining a planter, a wine rack, a craft project, a lamp shade, like this:
Or simply, using paint cans to store more stuff, like this below:
Paint cans as storage containers. Which brings us back to that idea of organizing! Now if only I can find that Marie Kondo book about tidying up. It apparently did not spark much joy!
You can visit them at their store location (open daily 11:00am – 4:00pm ) or order online at their website: https://www.plumislandsoap.com/
