Day 34 -- What Would You Do With These?

These are leftover from our Valentine's Day Chinese take-out meal. I have quite an accumulation of these because I hate to toss them, but the recycling center won't take them (they only takes "1's" and "2s" -- these are "5's".

I've been trying to think of something to do with them. Things to store in them, ways to alter them into something else...anything.

Suggestions? (Other than to 'take-out' less -- we're already doing that LOL).


  1. I would use them for all sorts of crafty things sort, stack & label. I'm a packrat with that sort of thing :o)

  2. Thanks, Sheri. I am using some of them for storing craft and scrapbook supplies. I am hoping to find other uses, too. Maybe I'll try using some for organizing my desk drawers and such...lord knows they are all a HUGE mess! LOL I think the rectangle ones will fit in a drawer pretty well, even with the lid on...

  3. You are doing so good with this 365. I started having problems with uploading pics here on blogger and I stopped my 365.

    I would use some of the containers and alter them for X,mas. If you bake you can put X,mas cookies in them. Or candy.

    I bake cookies each year and give them out in tins.

  4. I was going to say the same thing Ann did. Chirstmas cookies.

  5. Oh, Cookie packages! Great idea! Now, I don't know why I couldn't come up with that myself, but I'm so glad I asked for ideas! Thank you, ladies!!!! :)

    Ann, I am three days behind right now. Bummer you are having troubles uploading pix here though. I haven't *knock on wood* had any problems...hope I don't.
