I bought these crackers today at Grocery Outlet. I love that store because you almost always save more than you spend. But, I digress.
When I was done with my Pringles can, I realized that they fit in it. I mean it's tight, but pressing on the rim just a hair to let them slide in helps. They are so secure you could probably ship them, but certainly they would survive the trip to the park or the beach.
Hope that helps!
Try storing bulk pasta in Pringle cans... works great! (-:
Oh yes been doing that for years. Angel hair is my fav'. Thanks!!
This is a helpful tip when children become ill either when traveling or at home. Save empty large soft margarine tubs. Take a plastic Ziploc type storage bag and insert in the margarine tab folding down the top of the bag all around the tub. Place some folded paper towels in the bottom. If your child becomes car sick, he/she can use the tub/storage bag to throw up in. Then when done, all that needs to be done is zip up the bag and throw it away.
This works well at home too if your child is sick. Your child can have a tub/storage bag container in his bed, which will alleviate the need to get up to run to bathroom and hang over a toilet which cannot be too sanitary. It also alleviates a lot of mess. We used this "trick" for our kids when they were growing up, and my husband and I use it for ourselves too.

Michawnpita, I am sure Sally never meant that one would toss this bag out in the ditch! It would go in the garbage. I personally just use plastic ice cream pails for this purpose, with perhaps a little toilet tissue in the bottom for the splash issue. Then this all can be flushed and rinsed out. I can see if you anticipated a long trip and much carsickness, that the plastic bag might simplify things, as the ill person might have more than one session of upset!
When my oldest son was a child he could not look at a moving car (or plane or train...lol) without losing his lunch. I kept a square bucket from an old dehumidifier in the car for years. It was flat bottomed & the square shape kept it from moving around too much. I lined it with paper towel to prevent splash & flushed it & washed it when I got home. We also went the zipper bag route when we were out of town or the bucket was inconvenient. I would routinely dispose of the soiled bag in public restrooms & did not think it was much different than disposing of a used diaper or sanitary pad. Thankfully he eventually grew out of this like I did when I was his age.

A great way to store spaghetti is in a full-sized Pringles can. I wiped out the empty can with a damp paper towel to remove any oil and salt. I was able to fit 2 whole bags of spaghetti into the can.
Besides making the solar hot dog cooker that I've seen on several sites, I use Pringles containers for storing the plastic bags we get from stores. Then, I have a portable dispenser for plastic bags to store in car, hunting and fishing gear, and for gardening.
Use an empty Pringles can to store dry spaghetti, no need to worry about keeping the opened bag or box closed. An added plus is that the lid is see through plastic so no need to open it, as you can see how much you have left.
If you have a child who get carsick, the best container to use for the incident is a Pringles can. Saves a big mess and easy to store until properly disposed of.
Previously it was mentioned to use Pringles cans to store cookies or to give them as presents. I go a little further. I have friends and family in the service, many are deployed overseas.
I've found another use for a Pringles can. I recently injured my back and have nerve damage in my foot and leg. My foot burns constantly and the muscles in my lower leg are pretty well shot.
I wondered how you can use it for school?
Wash very well and air out. It can be used to hold pencils, pens, colors, colored pencils, small pieces of games.
Anything you can think of can be stored in them, tennis balls, hair clips anything.
Using Pringles can to wrap Christmas lights is even better than tubes they don't bend. And you can store extra lights inside.
My husband loves Pringles. I would like to put these empty cans to good uses. Any ideas?

I used to store my artist paintbrushes in them.
This tip would work great for glass artists. Use them to store glass rods for flame working. They could be laid on their side and stacked (wine rack style) connected securely so they be plenty strong. Each color rod could have its' own can.
Make a winter/Christmas scene by cutting an arched shape on one side near the bottom. Cover outside of can with white paint, add glitter if desired. Hot glue trim around cut out area.
Use a section of an old Christmas card as the background of the scene, add miniature figures, such as deer, Santa, trees, etc...hot glue to inside base of can. If desired, you can add a small glass candle holder with a tea candle. Makes a pretty creche or winter scene. Be careful if you light the candle and don't leave it unattended.
How many times has your child come home with precious art work smashed or torn from being stuffed inside a backpack? Let your child make a backpack organizer out of a used Pringles can.
My children and I use them to make solar hot dog cookers. Cut out a rectangle the less than half the size of the can but large enough to let lots of sun shine through, put clear oven bag cut to size over the hole (or clear acetate) and tape it in place.
I have a ton of small plastic pringles containers. They are from the individual sized portions. Any fun ideas of what to do with them?

Sell them to me! I have been searching for those darn things for a while now.
I would love to have some! My six-year-old daughter loves to take Pringles in her lunch and the small cans you can get anywhere are still rather large. I have been looking and looking for the little individual serving plastic cases after seeing them at a friend's house and cannot find them anywhere! Do you know where you got them? If so, please let me know, and seriously, if you decide to part with them, let me know!

Ive seen the school lunch bag travel case carries for Pringles at dollar stores n or walmart n target
Pringles cans are great for storing dog poop bags. Fill up a few cans with bags, then keep one in your car, one in a hiking backpack, and one by the back door.
I keep crochet and knitting needles in them.
I used them for napkins and plastic tableware for picnics. It help keep out insects and dirt.
Save those stack potato chip cans! Decorate them as you please, using contact paper, spray paint, or decoupage and use them for gift giving. There are perfect for baked goods such as cookies, popcorn, etc.
Here are some uses for Pringles cans.
