I toss all the plastic containers. But...My mom saves them because she refuses to let me use the good stuff. She says I dont return them.

Default Chinese food containers

I had to look and knew you had to be from NY. I live out west now and they all use throw away cardboard or the black plastic stuff. I wish I saved all my old pint and 1/2 pint plastics. They reheat great too.
I miss NY Chinese food!!
I like the rectangle rubbermaid containers. I dump embossing powders and a plastic spoon in them for colors I use all the time.

I took the lid off a Huggies pop-up box and use it to store my handmade envelopes of various sizes (not a food item, I know).

I also save the little spoons they use at ice cream stores and deli counters for "tastes" to use with my embossing powder.

I should edit that to say Huggies Baby Wipes container, not a diaper box or bag. I use the wipes for cleaning my stamps.

I buy Palmolive dishwahser detergent at Sam's Club. The cardboard box that the 2 bottles come in makes a great magazine holder. I just cut it on the diagonal, cover with pretty fabric and ribbon. Very pretty sitting on my shelf.

I also save the little tins from General Foods International coffee.

What kinds of things do you do with them? I have read about decorating them and putting a gift card inside, and I bet they would hold Hershey's kisses nicely too, but I worry about that metal lip around the inside top edge of the can. That goofy lip makes it hard to empty the can of all the coffee goodness, and also makes me worry about someone scraping themselves as they reach in.

I have lined them with some felt and put candy in them. I have also used them to keep spare change in to buy more stamping stuff.

Another container - of sorts - that I save are the mesh bags that apples, onions and such come in. If you flatten it out and lay them over a piece of cardstock and use a dauber with ink and punce you get a great "diamond" background. You can also reuse the mesh itself for a fabric background. I got this idea when I saw something similar in my LSS and they wanted 5.00 for a 12 x 4 inch piece.

The bottom of the heavy cardboard box that Velvetta Cheese (32oz size) comes in is perfect size for sizzix/bigshot small dies or thin cut dies.

I keep my glitters in glass salt & pepper shakers, that I pick up at yard sales. the older pepper shakers have smaller holes which work good for the finer glitters.

I cleaned out a honey container that was in the form of a bear. It has a pointed spout on the top of his head (sorry don't know the brand, but it is plastic). I use it for my diamond dust glitter and it is great for making those clear glass ornaments where you stamp your image on tissue paper and then apply inside the ornament with Liquid Laquer followed by diamond dust. The pointed spout is great for getting the glitter inside the ornament and not all over the place.

Not new, but I use tic tac containers to store embellishments. Also have a stack of altoid tins that I'm trying to figure out what they would work best for. I store the small & medium sizzix in the whitman sampler candy boxes - both top & bottom - and I stack them.

Anyone have a good use for the rectangle shaped, Kraft Mayo clear, plastic jars w/ flip up lid? Only drawback- the lid doesnt lock. I've several waiting to find a use for! lol
I save these and store Koolaid and taco seasoning packets in them. Since they're clear, I can see whats in them and the packets aren't scattered around the cabinet.

anything cardboard!

I undo the bottom after and the side seam.
they are almost all creamy caramel, sahara sand or kraft colored!

stamp all over inside and re-assemble inside out
use as gift wrap or for toys, accessories.

cut to shape like a magazine file box, use 2 together for strength or to have inside be pretty too.

we make robots on grocery day, all it takes is shape stamps, markers stickers and lots of packing tape. and then they all get recycled.

I save everything else too, but at my giftwrap workshops, the stamped inside-out boxes make people sit up , amazed!

Any cardboard boxes can be opened up when empty and you can use the cardboard as a sort of chipboard for free.
I love the little baby food containers for embellishments, and if you don't have babies to feed the baby food to, there are recipes on allrecipes.com that use baby food, like carrots added to meatloaf. Or you can add applesauce to a cake mix in place of part of the oil. Another upside, less calories when you do the cake one.

I use the containers the stick Crisco comes in. The cartriages for the regular wheels fit in there great. I also use shaker top Parmesan cheese containers to store ribbon.

I buy fruit cocktail based on which brand has a pop top and the right kind of bottom for opening from there and decorating the can later.... got quite a little stash going..... DH knows not to open a pop top can in this house without checking with me first to see if I want to open it "my special way".

Someone mentioned using laundry detergent boxes to store magazines.... I use the Everclean Cat Litter box.

The tins my tea bags come in are AWESOME.... I drink Republic of Tea flavors and the tins are tall metal cylinders. I get them at the co-op or at Cost Plus usually. They make nice pen/pencil holders when covered. Unfortunately, I have so many flavors it takes FOREVER to actually EMPTY one of the tins! LOL!

I have used cereal boxes as a kind of magazine storage container - cut off one narrow side and one end - sometimes glue them together, back to front. Instant oatmeal boxes also make good storage. The boxes can be strengthened by tucking in the top flaps .

Just revisiting this thread and did not read through everything so sorry if it was already mentioned.

The plastic babyfood containers come in real handy to store small embellishments, EP or ribbon.

I like using baby food jars for votives and tea lights.
You can decorate them by stamping on tissue paper then gluing the paper to the glass. Transparent glitters like dazzling diamonds look great too.

I do the same thing, only I use the boxes that dry milk comes in from Aldi. They're great for magazine storage.

I am going to start saving the boxes my cartons of soy milk come in. These boxes are lightly corrugated and about twice as thick as cereal box material. They are a great size for magazine storage, and I was also going see how they worked for general organisation of loose supplies. Plus, I'll be getting a big shot soon and will "need" things to die cut.

(I'd already have a stash of these boxes started and used, except somebody's husband broke them all down and jammed them in the trash after I told him to leave the boxes be.)

oh that's so clever! I was thinking those would be good for ribbon storage too. Put slits in for the ribbon to pull thru!

I can tell you, after almost 50 years, I usually (but not always) get asked "do you need this before I throw it away?" LOL It takes a certain amount of training.

What a great idea!! I have a rescued spice rack that I use for all my embellishments at the moment, but I am thinking about sticking the tops back on and using them as EP storage. The only trick would be transfering them without a mess...

What a great thread! I am not a person that saves a lot, but this is giving me lots of ideas! Thanks!

Not a container, but... for those of you who use the International coffees (and probably some other products)... I save the pop off foil liner to use for layering under tags, images, etc. Just wipe it off. It is especially good for a distressed edge.

The little trays that crisco sticks come in are good for drawer organizers.

Nope - no tupperware here either - but any other plastic container is fair game in my house...

Wow what a bunch of great ideas. I'm working on getting my own craft space and you ladies helped me come up with a lot of great storage ideas. I can get organized with spending very little. Thank you thank you! This weekend I'm working on using the large Swiss Miss containters as a bank. Going to embellish it with a disney theme and use that to save up for our next trip to disney (want to go back in 2008 when I turn 30).

What a great thread! I am not a person that saves a lot, but this is giving me lots of ideas! Thanks!

I would think that would work with EP too.
