the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Simple, reusable tissue box

When I first said that I wanted to start a style section I immediately got bombarded with email asking if I had any suggestions for a tissue box that didn’t suck. Just so happens that several months ago Maggie sent me this wooden tissue box as a housewarming gift. Not sure where she bought it, but I did some searching and found it for $35 at Canoe. That seems a little expensive, but the fact that it’s a one-time purchase evens that out a bit. Also, Maggie has a list of decorative tissue boxes over at MightyGoods, so go check it out if you’re tired of those gaudy, floral Kleenex containers.
