Storage Containers From Plastic Canisters


This idea may not be the most gorgeous and exquisite, but it's very useful! I usually buy a 3-liter soap canister, which I divide into pump bottles. I always feel bad throwing them in the trash afterward. Therefore, it's a nice benefit to use them again for this!

I use these plastic containers for storing dog supplies, too.

My skin care products can also be organized and found easily in these containers. These are perhaps not the most beautiful display on the planet, but in fact, they put me in such a good mood! They are definitely not garbage anymore!!
To top it off, you can decorate these!

    Do you have a problem with the sharp edges after you cut them? If so, how do you address it?

    Great idea if you have lots of kitchen clutter. Plastic can be recycled in most cities. Is it not available where you live?
