Save and Reuse Snack Containers

When I purchase pudding, yogurt or even jello, I save the plastic containers and wash them thoroughly with soap and water. They are the right size to either put snack such as raisins or trail mix in for kids. They are the perfect size to put paint and water in when kids want to paint. I love this because the containers are small enough for kids to hold. My daughter loves it.

I have been doing this for years, I like the puddings, etc I make better than the store bought ones. The Press & Seal plastic wrap is great for closing them up too! Buying in larger packages, raisens and such is so much cheaper. Thanx for sharing

Another good one is the Benefil dog food containers, they are exactly one cup size. I wash them well, then freeze my homemade chicken broth for reuse latter in other receipes.
