I agree that it's a good idea to reuse items we have around the house for craft storage or any kind of storage for that matter. I try to do that as much as I can. (06/04/2007)
Gals, Here's an idea you might consider using.WalMart has it's meats in deep plastic containers. I save them to put all of my items for a single project in,so nothing gets lost, Everything is together!! Judy from Alabama (06/04/2007)
I like the plastic containers for Gerber baby food. they are see-through, stackable, with snap-on lids that don't come off. I use them for stones, beads, bobbins, buttons, and straight pins. They are good for paint cups, too.
If you don't have a baby, remember these are just-right-sized portions of pureed veggies and fruits. Anyone can enjoy them with a meal or as a snack. Since I am a diabetic, I like the convenience, labeling and ready-to-go features.
I use the large-sized bottles of Ocean Spray Lite Cranberry Juice with handles to store dog kibble and Cascade dishwashing detergent. This way, they are easy to pour and waterproof. In fact, for everyday use of Cascade, I use a smaller recycled plastic container with a small pour spout, since it is easier to hold and pouring is more exact.
The Renizit Super Odor Neutralizer pump spray bottle is good for isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, bleach and plain water. I print up labels on my computer using the Word label program.
I use the Pringles' containers for scissors, paint brushes, tools (I am tool junkie), and anything tall or long.
If you can't figure out how to make these containers attractive or look like a matched set, please don't call yourself a crafter. hahahahaha (06/04/2007)
