  1. My favorite on your list is the cooler ice pack idea. Here is another idea if you have more than one of the kind that stack:

    Punch holes in one container and lid and stack it on top of a second container to use for sprouting small amounts of sunflower seeds or fenugreek or making almond “soaks” — these are attractive and take up less counter space than most of the commercially made sprouter kits. Stacked, you can make as many batches as you like, just be sure to leave one container unpunched to catch the drips at the bottom. I “punch” the holes by drilling them out with my Dremel.

  2. Great ideas.I’m in the middle of watching what I eat and the portion control idea is great. I like it. I usually take the whole bag of potato chips with me now I can downsize.

  3. One use I’ve discovered recently is using these for emptying out my deep fryer. I fill them up seal with lid and easily throw away. No leakage problems and the oil and grease are gone. But I like your ideas too just thought I’d add mine.

  4. It helps me save money on the food I love to eat, but is bad for my health. It will be the easiest way to control how much I eat. Thanks for the great tips.

  5. another good use: my husband is a gold panner and they are great for holding the black sand concentrate! Ialso use them for all my excess sewing items, for a crayon holder for the grands as well as a chalk holder.

  6. I save mine throughout the year and when valentines day comes around, I decorate them with valentine themed crafts and I fill them with valentine candy and finish it off by putting a red ribboned bow on top and give them away to my coworkers… Look great on their desks and they have a sweet treat at arms reach.
