I use empty tissue boxes by my washer and dryer to put the lint and used dryer sheets in. They hold an incredible amount and because of the small opening with plastic lining, it keeps the lint from flying around in the air! I have a family of 5 so I do a LOT of laundry! I find one empty box will easily last 4-6 weeks. I also use it to put trash from pockets into - my teenage son is great for leaving things in his pockets. I also keep an old piggy bank beside the tissue box. The loose pocket change really adds up!

I have been doing this for several years, and it works great. I 're-use' the lint by putting it outside into an old bird feeder. The birds help themselves to the free nest building material. We get some pretty interesting looking nests around here, needless to say. :)
Funny you should say this, I was recently reading on a box of tissues and it said "Do not reuse this box." This concerns me as I use a lot of them for crafting. Haven't had time to look into it but I will. Kinda scares me if you can't reuse a tissue box.
That's a great idea! The tissue box takes up less room than a trash can too. Thanks!
