Tips for reusing those plastic containers that tic tac breath mints come in.

Other Small Candy:

Refill them with cinnamon hearts or other small candies that will fit; much cheaper than buying new containers. Bags of candies can fill a heap of these containers!

Back in grade school I used to put cocoa powder in an empty tic tac box for my plain milk. This was before they brought us chocolate milk in the carton!

You could use one to make a little homemade sewing kit. Use a wooden match stick to wrap several colors of thread.

Fill them with little rocks and wrap them in electrical tape. These can then be used for diving blocks at the swimming pool.

Carrying Your Sweetener:

For anyone who uses a sugar substitute like Splenda or Sweet and Low, putting some in one of these containers is handy when you are somewhere that doesn't have any sugar substitute available.

Small Scrapbooking Supplies:

Try using these for brads, eyelets, small buttons, etc for scrapbooking. Nice because if you are going to a crop, you can take just the embellishments you need. - I don't even like tic tacs, but I buy them just so I can have the containers! Maybe someday I will find a place I can buy just the containers. :)

Toy "Radios:"

My brother and I used to use leftover tic-tac containers by wrapping them up in electrical tape and we would open the flap and pretend we were cops and they were our "radios."

I will always remember that!

Holding Small Items:

You can use them to hold seed, beads, and little parts that might otherwise get lost 'in the shuffle.' A tiny slip of paper tucked in can list what the 'somethings' are so you won't forget.

In some WalMart Supercenter's craft section you can buy the Tic-Tac containers in packs of eight.

For Your Workshop:

Save Tic Tac and other breath mint containers and use them to store small items in the shop. Tic Tac containers are especially handy because they are clear so you can see what's inside them.

When I was little I used to keep a tic-tac container or two full of tap water every night on the shelf at the head of my bunk-bed so I wouldn't have to climb down half-asleep if I were thirsty in the middle of the night. :) (07/10/2006)

These are good ideas. However, in our state, if you are in a vehicle carrying prescription drugs in containers other than the original bottle, you can be arrested for transporting drugs. Possibly, acetaminophen or ibuprofen could be carried in pocket or purse using tic-tac containers. (07/11/2006)

What about storing small sewing supplies? As a seamstress with my own business, I find a lot of things that need to be stored together: sewing machine needles, buttons, fasteners of all sorts, snaps, hook and eye, ribbons, for carrying a measuring tape, pins, or swatches in your bag,

And LOL at Mr Thrifty and his fungus comment! (07/11/2006)
