Some Homemaking Fun :: Re-Purposing Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Pint Containers


I love, love, love to repurpose our family's empty Ben & Jerry's ice cream pint containers! So much fun, since they're super, super cute...

Here are some of my (humble) ideas...Just rinse and re-use!
  1. Pencil and office-supply holder.
  2. Plant container.
  3. Clutter-buster for kitchen, bathroom, bedroom...for all of those little things that just need a cool place to land!
  4. "Green" vase for flowers! My sweet children are always picking dandelions from our yard and bringing them to me with a smile...so I always have an empty B & J container on my kitchen counter to hold these tokens of love!
  5. Storage for seedling packets in your garage - looks awesome and is super convienent, too!
  6. Use as a gift bag...if your present can fit, of course!
  7. Scrapbook storage.
  8. Button storage - we can always use more of this at our house!
  9. Try one as a darling toothbrush holder in a child's bathroom!
  10. Here was another idea I hadn't thought of...


Now, go get your green on with some B & J containers!!!

I heart "Frugal Fridays" over at The Shabby Nest!!

As always, extending ten thousand ((hugs)) to you...
