How to Organize Your My Cinema Lightbox Letter Packs

How to Organize Your My Cinema Lightbox Letter Packs

Let's be real for one second: you love your My Cinema Lightbox but storing the different letter & symbol packs can be a BIG struggle, right? We've all attempted the Ziplock bag method, or maybe tried to keep it easy (and affordable!) by storing them in the original packaging. But we think there's a better way! A few better ways, in fact. 

Now that you're getting serious with your lightbox (and maybe even expanding your family!), it's time to consider investing in a little organization to make your life 10x simpler.

Hanging Jewelry Organizer

Move over, earrings! There's a new use for your hanging jewelry organizers. Since you can hang this bad boy up anywhere (like your closet or the back of a door), this method is perfect for those who like to keep their lightbox in their bedroom or home office.

Binder with Protective Plastic Inserts

Time to kick it old school and bring back the grade school binders! Grab a snazzy 1/2" binder and a pack of these nine-pocket page protectors, and go wild with organization!

Mini Accordion File

For the hard-core minimalist organizer, a mini accordion file is the way to go! We go crazy about this thing when it comes to organizing tasty recipes, dreadful tax receipts, and even handy coupons (no judgement!). And now our lightbox letters can join in on the filing excitement!

Drawer Organizer Tray

For those who have truly committed to a My Cinema Lightbox for life, it might be worth giving up an entire drawer. Empty out that junk drawer and install a simple jewelry tray for your letters & symbols. Never again will you have to remember where you last left those letter packs.

You may not remember this, but before smartphones and Facebook, we kept track of people using a Rolodex. Your parents may even have one of these kicking around still! While these aren't the most effective way to manage contacts anymore, they're definitely handy for keeping your lightbox letters in alphabetical order! If this is not your style, try a business card book.

Now go throw those Ziplock bags away! Your My Cinema Lightbox Add-On Packs deserve better with one of these tips. Which one will you use? Share your best organizational efforts with us on social media by hashtagging #MyCinemaLightbox on Instagram & Twitter.

Top 5 Types Of Coffee You Need To Try

Top 5 Types Of Coffee You Need To Try

Coffee: The roasted delight that's the first thing on everyone's minds every morning. Some might say it's their first love (guilty). It's the most versatile way to put that extra pep in your step; iced, blended, piping hot or even previously digested (yes, that's a thing). How do you take your cuppa?

Cat Poop Coffee (Kopi Luwak)

Yes, you read that right. Kopi Luwak is an Asian delicacy where the coffee has been partly digested by the Civet cat and then defecated prior to consumption. The Civet's stomach is able to break down the coffee shell and leave the bean untouched. This very unique process creates the worlds most expensive coffee.

Cold Brew

Sometimes you need a cold java to really kick start your day. But be prepared, if you want to create this at home - remember that time replaces heat and you'll have to start prepping this icy bevy the night before.



This is one for the health nuts. No time in the AM? Replace your breakfast with this high-fat concoction that you can take on the go. Mix your morning coffee with coconut oil or even butter, to jumpstart your metabolism and start the day on a high.

Protein Coffee

Another way to drink your breakfast, this high-powered coffee is sure to get your blood pumping in the AM. Although this coffee packs 12 grams of protein, it's also free of gluten, fat, sugar and carbs. A perfect start to anyone's day.

Half Caf

Not everyone can handle the effects of a fully caffeinated beverage. Did you know that you can order almost any specialty coffee with only half the caffeine? If you find yourself jittery after that Grande Latte, give half caf a shot!

Did you see your photo in this week's blog? Be sure to share with your friends, and keep posting your #MyCinemaLightbox photos. If you don't have one, what are you waiting for? Grab one today, and don't forget to pick up a symbol pack too!

Words To Live By: 2017 Resolutions

Words To Live By: 2017 Resolutions

Your My Cinema Lightbox isn't just for decor, it can also act as an inspiration board! Take a minute this New Year and set yourself some goals for 2017. Put your resolutions on your My Cinema Lightbox to motivate you daily, like some of our customers have done.

It wouldn't be a New Year's resolution blog without a post about ambition, now would it? Start 2017 off right by setting some goals for yourself to grow this year - as a person and in your career. [Image from Santina Commisso] 

The best way to kick off a new year is with an attitude of gratitude. Instead of focusing on all the things you don't have, give thanks for what you do have. With a grateful heart and a positive attitude, nothing can bring you down! [Image from Koralee]

Explore more! There's so much to see in this big beautiful world of ours, but that doesn't mean you need to hop on a plane to be adventurous - start at home! Make a list of places you've been meaning to check out around your city, or hikes you've been meaning to take and get out there. [Image from Bowood Farms]

Find a new hobby, or learn a new skill. Utilize the ambition the new year brings, and dive into something new. Maybe crafts aren't your thing, but you could always learn to play an instrument, start cooking or even get into snow shoeing! The options are endless, really. [Photo from Fynes Designs]

Unfortunately for many of us, January also mean Christmas break is over and it's time to go back to school. Instead of dreading the return to the books, embrace it! Turn over a new leaf, and set some scholastic goals for yourself. Boost your GPA, show more effort and make the most of your education. [Photo from Kol Kid]


Now that we've got you thinking about your 2017 resolutions, what goals are you setting for yourself? Post your Words To Live By on your lightbox and share with us on social media!
