Ideas Needed

I have been reorganizing and cleaning out my kitchen and pantry. I found all of these canisters- EMPTY! I received them at my bridal shower (in '05!) and have never used them. I currently use four canisters which are not labeled which makes me crazy. I am looking for some ideas on how I can use these bad boys. I don't necessarily need to use them in the kitchen. Any out of the box/ creative uses welcome! I am thinking one for cotton balls in the bathroom- but who knows! and see that lovely black garbage bag in the background. It is filled with stuff I am going to toss! woo hoo

you could always use them to store pasta, rice... that kind of thing

they would work in the bathroom too... as you said cotton balls, q-tips, etc...

what about using one of the tall ones to store remote controls in the living room or something

Q tips... U could use one for spare change! I keep a basket on my dryer to throw all the spare change that I wash and dry :) If not, I will throw it in my pocket and probably wash it all over again!

They are pretty, could you use them in a trio to decorate on top of kitchen cabinets? Otherwise store any kids stuff-crayons, stickers, box tops!

Hmmm...I'd probably use them to store stuff like raisins, choc. chips, dried fruit, nuts, etc...that way it doesn't all have to sit in plastic bags until I use it!

How fun! I love finding things like that, and those cannisters are precious. I like to use them to store flour, sugar, rice, pasta, etc., but the idea of putting them in the bathroom sounds good.
