Try empty and cleaned pop bottles and milk cartons. Also you can put dry goods (rice, flour, sugar,etc) in them too.
Dear Patti, Your idea is wonderful although, if the containers have the recycle symbol on them they should not be reused because it is unsafe. They are not made to be reused.
Unless the recycle number stamped on the bottom of the jar or bottle says #2, #4 or #5 this is not a safe thing to do because the others leach cancer and other disease causing chemicals. Please check the bottom of the jars or bottles you want to reuse and you'll find most are #1 which is one of the worst leaching offenders when reusing for food or beverages :-(
