I save the lids from the tops of Pringles chips cans and the tops from the Walmart generic Crystal Light mix. They are perfect for setting cans of shaving cream on in the shower. No more rusty marks on my tub end and windowsill from the can.

I save the plastic lids from yogurt containers and use them as "coasters" for shaving cream in my bathroom shower. No rust rings! They also make handy, disposable holders for steel wool pads in the kitchen. Larger plastic lids make great disposable spoon rests if the utensil isn't too hot (both in the kitchen and when barbecuing).

When I used to do a lot of crafts and quilting, I used lids to trace and cut out pattern pieces. Plastic coffee can lids work perfectly for that purpose.
Lids come in so many sizes too and sometimes other shapes besides round. (04/07/2007)
