I reuse soda bottles that have been cleaned and dried to store rice, oatmeal, cornmeal, and such.
I came up with this idea last week while drinking a Pepsi and staring at the bottle. I tried making one and couldn't stop because they are so much fun and the designs are endless.
Approximate Time: An hour or more, depending on what is used for decorations.
Knot all the things you sew on in the back of the felt strip.

I save these wonderful little plastic bottles from teas and "ice" drinks, because they are perfect for redoing the condiment shelves in the fridge. They're all the same size, and I write what is in each one on the lids. But, that isn't the tip. I also have my friends and family save these wonderful coffee containers. When moving, I found that four fit inside the other, and the brain started thinking.
Camping and picnic season is upon us. If you are diabetic like me, you could separate your sugar free drinks or water in the coolers like this. You can also keep your condiments from rolling around in there this way, too. You can fill them to about 1/2 inch from the top and freeze them, making them the perfect ice chest cooler that won't melt all over everything. I would put them all in the coffee canister before you put them in the freezer as they might expand.
We should all carry water in our cars over the hot months, and this would sit up in a crate a lot better than a gallon jug would. I found that they are pretty tight in there, so even if it rolled around they would not come out as easy.
I can't imagine anyone needing that many buttons or beads for travel, but if you did, they are a lot more reliable than zip locks.
So, how many things can you all come up with to help us all stay thrifty and organized? Tag - you're it!

I recycle plastic bottles by filling them with tap water, freezing, and then using to line plastic grocery bags when I go on a picnic or long car journey. Food and other drinks stay cold and you have extra water for emergencies or to save on buying junk drinks en route.
This past summer our hummingbird feeder was attracting more bees than birds. My husband cut the top off a regular sized soda bottle. He put it on the same rod that holds our humming bird feeder and it attracted a lot of bees. Once the bees found their way in they couldn't get out.
When I send out cuttings to friends, of plants that propagate easily, I take a 2 liter cola plastic bottle and cut around the top to make a planter. I drill little holes in the bottom for drainage, tear the wrapper off, and decorate it with permanent markers.
I made these bowling pins out of empty 24 oz. pop bottles. I used clear and green bottles. Any sized bottle will work.

I lately have been finding many ways to reuse plastic milkjugs and soda bottles. Here are just two new ways we can reuse them.
It is always so hot here in the summer and I like to have flowers and vegetables on my deck and in the yard, but can't afford the water bills to keep them watered between times of rain.
I cut the top off plastic soda bottles to use them as funnels. It has been a handy addition in the kitchen for me and the garage for my husband. I use the bottoms to start plants, organize my numerous small items in my craft room, or hold change at the end of the day.
When I'm done with the larger bottles I take a pair of old scissors and cut the top 1/3 off. What I'm left with is a bottom part that I use as a vase or a planter to start cuttings or seeds, and the top half is just the right size and shape to use as a funnel to add oil or tranny fluid to your car.
Does anyone have any uses for used plastic soda pop bottles?
I have cut the top and bottom of 2-litter pop bottles cut from the top to the bottom to make a large rectangle. On this I paint fishes that I then cut out and hang unto a wire hanger that I rounded up into a mobile for my grandchildren. Use fishing line of different length to hang the fishes. Very bright and colorful. I use patio paint if it is for outside and acrylic paint if it is for inside. You can also paint pretty flowers from your plastic rectangles. Try it.
