    Not a question but I agree, Coffee Mate containers are my new favorite storage container! Only I have a little problem getting them since no one I know uses it & I'm the only one in my household that uses it.  I like to buy the warehouse size of dishwasher detergent but don't really have the storage space for that big bottle so use the large Coffee Mate container :))

      I use the big economy size to store sugar. Each one holds 4 lbs easily. These aren't clear, so storing anything else you'd have to label.

    All I can find are the white/cream color. Where do you find the clear ones?

      any food store has the creamer...brand and flavor dictates the cop color...Coffee Mate bottle are clear...the labels come off very easy by cutting it off...not glued on...very useful!

    They are great for filling your steam iron

    Just now

    I have several that I use to put baking chips in,salt,breadcrumbs,.I even have one with cooking oil in it. They are also great to put milk in when its lower than half gallon. Then I can throw away the big jug. Save space
