Let’s discuss Tiffany boxes. I have come across several of these famous blue boxes while helping clients. (Apparently, I help a lot of lucky women!) But the boxes are always empty. The jewelry is elsewhere.
Then, I have the following convo:
Me: “Listen, I love jewelry as much as the next person, but why do you want to keep the empty box?”
Client: “Because it’s beautiful.”
Me: “I would invite you to cherish the jewelry that came in the box more than the box.”
Then, I convince them to recycle it.
I am stickler for getting rid of empty boxes — Tiffany, Apple computer/Ipad/Iphone, Amazon. We don’t need them unless you plan to return it. They are just clutter.
Love the items that came in those boxes. Not the boxes.
And if you want to be surrounded by Tiffany blue, I told one client, paint your bedroom that color.
