Are you referring to M&M Minis? Fill with quarters if you go to laundromat. Make into a necklace to hold cash for outtings like Six Flags. Create a mini first aid/sewing kit/medicine holder for purse/backpack good for camping. Tampon holder maybe? Store beads. Make mini suprises for kids. Shove baby wipes or cleaning wipes into them for quick clean up on the go/car. If you smoke, throw a few cigarettes in them with a lighter. Refill with candy for cheaper than buying more tubes of M&Ms. Put a cut down taper in with a lighter for emergency reasons.

If the lids on those are flat:

I saw a craft using empty film cannisters where they used a strong waterproof glue to glue a rock to the lid. They put a space house key inside the cannister and then hid it outside (bury the tub in the dirt with only the rock showing)

Decorate and use to hold tooth/reward for the Tooth Fairy.

Storage for:

- toothpicks

- cotton swabs or balls

- matches

- mini sewing kit

- spare buttons

- thimbles or sewing needles

- small condiments for lunch box

- rings or earrings holder

- safety pins

- organize small craft items like beads

- organize small office supplies like paper clips

- sort & store garden seeds

- store spices & herbs

- store hardware: nuts, bolts, nails, etc

- pill or vitamins when traveling

My mom uses one os those tubes to hold quarters. This would be a handy way to take them to the laundromat or to a gaming arcade.
