Repurposed Plastic Crystal Light containers

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.

    difficult one Becky, one off compostable container or plastic re-useable one? dilemma as one uses plastic. though I love my chinese takeaway boxes for the same idea of storage for my craft items as they are easy to see inside.
