I cut out the serrated edging off the boxes of foil, plastic wrap, etc., and cut them in different sizes. I use them to scrape gum stuck on the floor or shoes or for other tough gross things when I clean. I also keep one in my purse and in the car. You can also glue one to the outside of an empty can and use it to cut round cookie shapes or biscuits. I use a tuna can with both sides cut out and spray it with Pam and the dough comes out easily. I use a can of deviled ham for smaller circles.

I have taken the serrated edge off of these boxes and used the box itself to mail small width posters to my family. It saves from having to buy a mailing tube and extra cost to buying a tube and paying extra postage on the larger tubes.

I found that the jumbo boxes of foil or wrap were a good size to hold spools of ribbon - especially the curling type ribbon around the holidays. I take off the serrated edge so it does not catch, and then just make sure all the rolls are going the same way. It keeps things from getting tangled, and keeps my two cats from running away with the ribbon. You can also cut slits in the top if you want to dispense the ribbon out that way - I don't because the cats get tempted by the tufts of ribbon sticking out.

I have yet another use for the serrated edges that I cut out of the boxes of foil or plastic wrap. I cut them into different sizes and use them for scraping up hard pieces of dirt off the floor.

But the most rewarding use for me was to scrape the burnt part off toast.

It did the best job ever! It was also really quick. 2 passes with an edge the same size as the toast was all it took. I usually burn my toast often: but from now on I might even do it on purpose just for the satisfaction! lol

I had trouble seeing what was in the small jars I had in my cupboard as they were all on the same level. I taped together four empty aluminium foil boxes in an L shape. I've put this in the back of my cupboard and it acts as 'staging' and lets me see the large part of the labels on all the jars! You could go one further and add another three on the bottom to give you another tier!

I have taken the cutting edge and glued it on the inside of my fishing tackle box. No more hunting for a knife to cut line.

The box itself I have used with the empty roll inside to store spare needles ,small nails an variety of tacks ,just so I don't have to go looking through a junk drawer for them.
