I get tons of coupons. The place I like to store them is a baby wipes container. There's lots of room and I never have to worry about losing the lid.
You can dispense wet wipes from an old baby wipe container.

I use these wonderful wipes, then use the container for something else around the house. They are great for flat things. I have zip ties, rubber bands, office supplies for the car, hair ties/bands and makeup for the girls, first aid, spare glasses, and just about anything you want to keep handy yet dry.
They are invaluable for camping silverware, matches, bite medicines, film, snacks, and more. I get them for just $1.12 at Walmart and when the wipes are gone, I have this wonderful little pouch I can use over and over again. If a seam breaks, I tape it with clear strapping tape, or just use the next one that is empty. You can't go wrong with these little gems!

I use a baby wipes container with pop up dispenser to put the lint from my dryer into. It holds quite a bit and when it's full I just open it up and dump into the trash and it's ready to fill again. Also it goes anywhere like in the car or camping, too. It is a great little recycled trash container.

What do you do with all those baby wipes boxes that you go through while raising your children? By using the same brand, but choosing different color packages you can make quite a collection. Then when they are empty, wash them out really clean and take the label off with "Goo-Gone" (a liquid orange product) and you have a ready-made, colorful, easy, set of BIG building blocks for your children to play with. Because they are clean inside, they make great little keeper boxes for kids little collections, too.

I save baby wipe containers and find uses for them. Recently, I came up with a doozie! I always buy 13 gallon kitchen garbage bags in the economy rolls, and have always put up with the aggravation of having to wrangle them out of the package and it rolling around. Well, guess what! The roll fits perfectly in a baby wipe container, and I just fed the first bag up through the opening at the top.
We also use them to store prescriptions - they fit in the nightstand drawer, no pill bottles rolling around, and if we go out of town, we just grab up the baby wipe box and throw it in the suitcase!
They come in handy for all sorts of things:

So our kids broke the lid off the diaper wipe box they kept their little toys in. Don't throw it away just yet. Wait until you get your first really good snowfall and give it to the kids to use as a snow mold for bricks. Hey they just might learn how to build an Igloo!

You can re-use the nice white plastic container that Clorox wipes comes in. Remove the label and the lid and it works well for a lot of things. I store my feather duster in mine, but you could also use it to store your toilet bowl brush, yarn, kids toys, and other things, as well.
