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:

Then, my granddaughter's elementary school teachers can always use what I have left over.

I love your assorted use ideas and especially for the trash bags rolls! Although I am giving you a thumbs up I beg you to please not put food of any type, including pet food, in those containers though because the containers are not made with food grade safe materials and will leach unhealthy chemicals into the food. :-(

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!

Hadn't thought about these. Good idea. I always used the bigger boxes of wipes, and reused those containers for storage -- mostly of the kids' stuff. They're great for crayons, legos etc.

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.

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 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.

What do you do with all those baby wipes boxes that you go through while having 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"...

So our kids broke the lid off the diaper wipe box they kept their little toys in. Don't throw it away just yet.

I use the empty container to cover my electric outlets that my appliances are plugged into. It is extra wide to cover the entire outlet. I used 2 small screws at the bottom and top to secure it to the wall. My grandson was always trying to reach for the plug when he came to visit. Since I could not unplug the refrigerator I came up with this idea. It worked. He no longer reaches for the plugs because he can't see them.

Now I reuse the one that came in a gift pack for my youngest (I've used it for 15 months.....that is a lot of wipes!) But when my older one was born, I bought Baby Magic wipes, because I trust their formula, and the box looks like blocks, so we bought the containers and by the time he was walking, had enough blocks to build a fort! We played with them for a long time until we had to move.....then some were used for organizing.

I used to work for a local preschool as a helper in their kitchen. The school used the wet wipes in the round container. After the containers were empty, they and the lids were washed and dried.

The cook would then fill the container with any leftover spaghetti or other leftovers to be stored in the freezer. It is easy to label the leftovers with a Sharpie Marker.
