Reusing Containers for Storage

You can cover many smooth containers (such as bread crumbs or nut cans) with decorative Con-Tact or wrapping paper and fill them with homemade cookies or candy for gifts. You can also use them to store food (Pringle cans hold 1 lb. spaghetti), make-up (small Pounce-type cat treat cans hold Q-tips and applicators), jewelry (Sucretes and Altoids hold small pins and earrings), grooming (bobby pins, hair clips), medicines (small tubes of ointment) cleaning items (partially-used steel wool pads) and craft supplies (beads, eyes, ribbons, small flowers), almost anything!

I love the idea of using the Pringles can for spaghetti. I use a lot of Pringles and hated throwing those cans away. Hope you win.
