Given? I've always thought you had to pinch them!

My understanding is that these wee toiletries are part of what you pay for with the room hire, so you can use them in the room, take them away from the room or ignore them altogether and use whatever toiletries you have with you.

Brilliant idea for a thread, ouraggie. Here's a few of mine.
I use a redundant earthenware treacle-glaze biscuit barrel (no lid, it broke) as a holder for my knitting yarn to stop it rolling all over the floor. It's quite large so easily holds the bigger 100g balls of wool.
I buy my yarn online and it comes packed in plain white organza drawstring bags. Some I use as laundry bags and the others have been cut up and re-sewn into smaller bags to hold loose F&V when I go shopping.
A tall round plain glass vase has been re-purposed as a kitchen utensil holder that stands on my kitchen worktop. Much too large for flowers but ideal in its new role.
We recently bought a new suitcase on wheels so the old one (not on wheels) now stores my fabric stash and it fits neatly under the bed in the spare room.
LIke AoD, I use small glass herb and spice jars as storage containers for buttons.
DH recently got 2 new T-shirts and there was plain white tissue paper in the packaging, so that's been ironed out and will be used for wrapping presents, tied up with the ribbons that I cut out of clothes that don't need hanging up.
