Thursday Thinking Green: Reuse Empty Plastic Containers for Studio Organization

Don't throw out your empty plastic deli containers and peanut butter jars.  Instead, wash them out, let them air dry, and use them to organize your children's small toys, items in your craft room or studio, or anything else you can think of.

Not only are you keeping one more item out of landfills by repurposing them, you also get a free storage container/organization tool.

Another plus is that they are clear so you can stack several on a shelf and see what supplies you have at a glance.

The deli containers that are made of #6 recyclable containers can also be used as shrink plastic.  Remember shrinky dinks (more details on that in an upcoming post)?

I'd love to hear any comments about other ideas for reusing/repurposing these containers.
