Mailbag Monday: Chocoholic’s Survival Kit

Welcome to my first Mailbag Monday post.
I’ll be sharing fun ways to use snail mail to spice up our friends’ lives.

Several of my friends are crazy about chocolate,
so I created a Chocoholic’s Survival Kit.

Six Easy Steps…

1. Locate a clear container. I chose a travel-sized box of cotton swabs.

2. Carefully remove the labels

3. Fill with chocolates of your choice. I used Hershey’s
Nuggets bars, since six of them fit perfectly.

4. Add mailing labels.

5. Seal container with clear packing tape. I covered the labels, too.

6. Add postage and mail.

Your Turn…

Do you know someone who’d love to receive a Chocoholic’s Survival Kit?

What other containers and candy could be used to create one?

    Okay this is so clever and wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

  • Great idea, Keli! 🙂
    I think I’ve eaten more chocolate this past year than I have in my entire life so far, LOL. Maybe because I’m working even harder on my writing, and I “am certain” eating a bite of chocolate now and then will help my creativity. 😉 Or that’s what I tell myself anyway! Thanks for sharing this!

    Now this is a cute idea! I’m afraid my family would think I was possessed if I received one because they would see me run down the driveway, sling open the screen door, race to the Keurig with my coffee cup, and while it’s filling I would rip open my emergency kit with a grin on my face (the one that says I am NOT sharing my chocolate), then take it along with my coffee to hide in my room for a while. Whew! Disaster averted…I cannot resist chocolate…ever 🙂

  • Love this, Keli! (And love your beautiful heart!)

    Thank you for sending those chocolate pick-me-ups at just the right time. 🙂
