If you like to carry a box of tissue in your car as I do, the box seems to always get messed up. I have found that if you use an empty baby wipe container (large one), you can put the tissues in the container and push the first tissue through the top. If they are the pop up tissues, then the next one will be ready for your use next time. Put a label on it saying tissues. Then you never have to worry about a tissue box falling apart and sending tissues everywhere.

Even at the Dollar Tree, you can miss bargains. I recently went to buy a small box of tissues, the cube shaped ones. I thought 80 tissues was a bargain, until I saw the oblong boxes and counted 175 or even 200 tissues in that style of box.
When using the cube-type boxes of tissues, often the first few tissues out of the box pull out shredded and useless. To remedy this, when you first open the box, bang it a few times on the counter to pack the tissue bundle to the bottom of the box.
When the new box has had about an inch worth of tissues used out of it, I go to the storage closet, pull out the almost empty one, remove the tissues and gently fold them into the fuller box, tucking them in neatly.
I discovered that if you put your generic box of Kleenex on top of a favorite scented candle in a jar, after a few weeks your Kleenex will have the same scent as the candle. Very easy way to have nicely scented kleenex.
