Reuse Containers as Salt Spreader

Another use for Folger's handled coffee container is filling it with sidewalk safety salt or calcium chloride pellets during winter. The handle makes it safe and easy to dispense the product as needed. You don't have to touch the salt. Simply scoop and sprinkle. I have an especially long brick walkway so this recycled purpose saves steps back to the porch for refills.

I am going to experiment with the container to fill sunflower seeds in the bird feeders. Perhaps, by cutting a side hole and replacing the lid would funnel the seeds into the tubular bird feeder with less spilling
