Ideas for reusing Velveeta boxes. Post your ideas.
Instead of automatically purchasing plastic drawer dividers, try using the Velveeta cheese cardboard box bottom. It's heavy duty and lasts a long time. I use four of these in one drawer (along with a previously purchased plastic tray divider) and it fills the entire drawer nicely. I keep all sizes of batteries needed separated in these and I can tell at a glance when I need to get more batteries.
Organizing socks, undies, pencils, pens, and other things in drawers. If you work in daycare, they are the perfect size to store the numbers in a calendar kit. I have at least 8 sets of numbers and they line up perfectly. They work great for organizing art supplies too.

I use Velvetta boxes to store small game pieces together. My son uses them to store his Micro Machines (remember those?) and also to store a few Hot Wheels in the car for boring travel time. My daughter uses them for Polly Pocket pieces.

They are perfect size for 3.5 inch diskettes.

does anyone remember a craft from the 60s using velveeta boxes to make fancy small doll carriages? I'd like the instructions to do with my granddaughter.
My daughter uses a Velveeta box for her drawing pens, pencils, and markers. I love the battery idea. I have so many ideas now.
