    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 :))

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

    What do you use to get the creamer smell out?

    I use them for storing my craft colored sands, When I have used the sand for a décor item/accent such as holding a flameless taper candle secure and upright in a votive candle holder. When done with that setting I simply unscrew the top of the bottle and with the lid open place the spout over the top of the bottle to use as a funnel to pour the sand back into the container for use for another project. Works great and no mess.

    Nice idea. However those "pour tops" are starting to not be used and are becoming replaced by much smaller "screw tops." This is to help eliminate the waste/use of plastic.
