I wrote a post a few years ago now about Broken Crayons and how I was feeling at the time about the monotony of motherhood. I didn’t throw those broken crayons away I have keep them.

It is a dilemma for me as I struggle to simplify my life and not hang on to things and also not just throw things into the landfill. The former I need to do for my own mental health and the latter for the earth. Enter in the Doodle cake crayons box from Alex Toys. *This is not a sponsored post* I found the box one day while shopping at Winners and thought that is the perfect idea to solve my broken crayons dilemma.
