Frugal Friday Home Tips~Baby Food Containers
While I was babysitting this morning and feeding the little one her breakfast, it occurred to me how long it had been since I fed baby food to a little one! My youngest is 4 1/2 now, so it has been quite some time. Memories came flooding back- spit up, mushy foods, messy bibs, etc. But it also reminded me I know longer had that endless supply of awesome containers. Most baby food containers these days are plastic, and they are perfect for storing small craft items, organizing a junk drawer, even for those small amount of left overs!
I have 2 older girls who love crafts, so I have beads, small craft foam pieces, jewelery parts, buttons, etc all in those wonderful containers.
They work great in the garage too for keeping track of those extra screws, nuts, bolts, nails etc. They stack nicely too on a shelf or in a cabinet!
Think outside the box (err, jar) and you can come up with thousands of ideas to use these and keep them out of the landfills, (they are recyclable just incase you don't need all of them). Store flower seeds from the fall to plant in the spring, use as water caps for young ones painting, freeze your own home made baby food for perfect sizing....
The possibilities are endless.
