I always save the plastic containers from Crystal Light drink mixes. There are so many ways you can #recycle them for convenient storage.

    I want these. I often look for 'smart containers for my craft room At present I use Chinese takeaway boxes as we have plastic boxes with tight fitting lids and stack neatly. Easy to label with sharpies as I lost my label maker .

    One day I accidently let my box of herbal tea pkts get wet, so I was hurriedly looking for something to put the bags in - Voila, there was an empty Crystal lite container. So now I immediately put all my indivitual tea bags in them. Keeps them fresher, too.

    I wish more companies would put their food or other items in reusable containers. We only use their Pure product and it comes in a cardboard box. Maybe if I write the company they'll change.

    When I travel, I put my pill organizer in one so if the organizer pops open it is not such a big mess. I also use one for perfume, shampoo, etc. to avoid spillage. A comb and brush, toothbrush and so on work in one also. Yes, I don't like to have
