Oh how much I love these! My boyfriend eats baby food ( dont worry, hes not a minor LOL hes 29 ) and I love these containers. I use the to sort my beads, pendants, and other crafts. So useful!
I use these to make individual puddings and jello cups instead of buying them individual. I get six of these from 1 box of jello or pudding mix.
My husband, 2 year-old, and I live in Massachusetts, and the rest of my family is in Maine, so we do a fair amount of traveling back and forth. Rather than carrying whole pill bottles, I use plastic Gerber baby food containers with lids and put enough pills to last the time that we are there (and usually a few days extra in case we are stuck due to snow in the winter). I mark the containers with a marker to avoid confusion.
I had a bunch of these left from "baby days" so it's a good way to use them. They are also great for jewelry, elastic bands, and tacks.

Baby food now comes in plastic rectangular containers. These make great little reusable containers to pack in lunches! Perfect for raisins, dipping sauce, salad dressing the list goes on and on. If you don't have a baby, you can get them from friends or buy them and eat the baby food or use in cooking breads and cakes. For .98 for two it's still cheaper than buying those small throw away containers.

So handy these little containers are!!! And they seal up so easy! People are even requesting me to save some for them when the baby food is out! Have even used them for storing items in....such as paper clips/tacks/nails---keeps them better organized!! (08/08/2006)
They are also great for packing jewelery or hair accessories for travel - (11/17/2007)
If you have a baby in the home, keep the plastic Gerber food containers and use them to organize your home. They can hold toothpicks, pins, nails, screws, corn cob holders or pretty much anything that you could imagine.
They are also great for trips or vacations because you can pack q-tips, cotton balls or other supplies in them and label the items too. You will find that they are easy to store in small places because they are flat on the top and oblong in shape, which allows them to stack neatly.
Your husband will also want them for sorting the screws, nails, washers, nuts etc; keeping the tool area neater too and they can be marked on the outside so guessing what is inside becomes easy.
Enjoy the tip and organizing will become easier, even for new parents.

Our baby grandson just began eating solid foods and I am now saving the handy Gerber oblong plastic containers and snap lids for neat little storage tubs. Thus far, we have re-used them for powdered formula and rice cereal on the go in his diaper bag.
They will be quite useful for organizing small items, such as safety pins, paper clips, and my scrap booking supplies. They can be used to store hardware in the workshop and tiny clutter from the junk drawer. When an item is dismantled for storage, they are perfect for hardware. One could also store Band- aids and small tubes of Neosporin ointment neatly in the car and quarters for the car wash.
The possibilities go on and I am quite sure, I will be sharing them with friends and family until the baby is old enough to eat Grammy's meals.
