Storage containers you didn't know you had


My husband gives me such a hard time because I tend to be a hoarder when it comes to containers that food comes in. Parmesan cheese, peanut butter, mayonnaise, syrup, coffee creamer, you name it. I keep it all. I just see so much potential in those heavenly bits of plastic. Plastic ware is expensive. Like, WHOA NELLY expensive. It's redonkulous. I don't understand why it costs so much to store things. I forsee myself always being a hoarder of these things. Just see what I did with them:







This was a coffee creamer dispenser. (Click here for the Fabric Softener recipe)

At one time this held Parmesan cheese. We (usually?) keep Cheez-Its in it because it has a pop open half-lid thingy muh jigger.

This is a Peanut Butter jar. We keep almonds in it or round crackers.


This was a mayonnaise container. I use it to store Zaxby's sauce.
Did I hear you say recipe?


Syrup and/or Ketchup bottles. Use them to store Pancake/Waffle mix. They have the perfect spout for pouring. I use them for funnel cake. (Recipe coming soon)



Jars are great for freezing liquids. As long as you dont fill them to the top, the glass shouldnt break.
The jar pictured has cream of chicken in it that is frozen. I make my cream of chicken from scratch, and store it in a powder form. Here, I over made it and didn't want it to go to waste.


What containers do you reuse?
