Recycling Empty Containers

Instead of throwing our  the empty tin from the candle that we burned, I cleaned it up and made it into a container for my kids rubber puzzle pieces.  This way, I get to  keep those small pieces in one  container and  at the same time, do not contribute  to  pollution if I throw the tin away.    I plant to tinker the tin  but  it's okay as plain for now.

Another  empty container that I recycled is the  sprinkle  bottle.  I love that it has four compartments and that I can  organize my paper clips according to colors.

The last but the not the least are the empty  tins from the mints.  I put my daughter's eraser collection inside.

How about you, do you recycle?

Ingenius--I generally save the tins from coffee then buy more coffee in bags and transfer it to the tins--every little bit helps!

I like those ideas sis! I actually recycled the candy confetti jars for my arts and craft supplies so I can make use of the built in dividers. And those mint canisters, are they Altoids?!? I should have kept my Altoids tins too. That's a great way to keep smaller collections in neat and order manner.

What a great way to use empty containers! We reuse a lot of our containers to store craft items.

Very crafty, you can always make something great out of something that was no longer in use.

Good idea. I am the same way, I recycle everything. My husband is not keen about it.
