Why do we toss away perfectly good Tide pod containers, coffee cans, and the like–and then go buy storage containers?
I love to reuse empty containers….
Some get a make-over…
(Obviously, you want to thoroughly clean out the container, and use food-safe containers to hold food)
For some motivation, I’ve complied a list of cute, economical ways to reuse containers.
Alyssa is one of my favorite DIY gals. Her crafts are oh-so-easy and always turn out cute. Here, she covered cardboard boxes with fabric to make those fancy storage boxes that can be quite pricey. AND she only used hot glue. Love it!
This site has printable labels to help you reuse those bulky coffee containers. Awesome!
These plastic canisters are unrecognizable with spray-painted lids and DIY labels. Much cheaper than the store-bought containers.
Stylish & thrifty. Awesome idea for empty plastic bottles.
Of course, if the container is already darling, like a candle jar or these tea tins, keep them around as decor. Such a cute little herb garden!
Any big ideas I missed? Anyone else obsessed with reusing containers like I am? (maybe..hopefully…)
