Uses for Mint Tins

I hate to throw away those cute mint tins so I've come up with a few idea's to use them in the car or purse.

  1. I put in some almonds/cashews (or your favorite) nuts to keep in the car for when I get a snack urge. Then I don't buy junk food......as often~
  2. Ad

  3. I also keep a few of my husband's meds in a tin, then if we are out visiting and stay over, he always has them!
  4. I bring along my vitamin supplements that I take. I also bring along chewable vitamins like calcium chews or gummies for adults that we never seem to want to take at home and have them on the road. Then our gummy snack is actually a healthy one!

  5. It's a great mini first aid kit and can hold quite a number of band aids, ibuprofen, alcohol wipes, etc.
  6. I always keep a $20 bill and a number of quarters in the car as well. You could lose a wallet, run out of gas without your credit card, need toll money. You never know!
  7. If you like to take spontaneous hikes or nature walks, a tin with a few additional items like: a whistle, matches (and the relighting birthday candles!) plus a pocket knife, mirror (for signaling if lost) are great to carry along!

These are ideas for just the car/purse, in the house the options are endless!

So don't throw out those tins!

I organize my desk with them...paperclips, tacks, staples, etc. etc. & I hot glue one example of what is in the tine to the top for easy identification!

I use them for holding my stitch counters when I am crocheting or knitting.

Hi -- some good ideas! How about one with emergency information (name, address, emergency contact, list of medical problems, list of medications)? That might be life-saving!
