Coffee Mate Kitchen Storage Containers

We go through Coffee Mate creamers like crazy here at the office and wanted to find a way to reuse them instead of throwing them out. We found some inspiration and decided to turn them into useful kitchen storage!

First, just make sure you dump out any of the remaining creamer.

Make sure you give it a good rinse!

To get the label off, first you will place the scissors right under the label and give it a snip.

Then, just peel the label off!

If you don't want to wait for these to air dry inside you can just use our little hack. We used a knife and a paper towel to get those hard to reach areas.

Next, take a piece of printer paper and roll it into a funnel to pour the cereal into the the container.

Just pour the cereal or item of your choosing through the funnel!

Use a sharpie to label your container if you want!

Ta-da! The perfect storage for all of your kitchen goodies. These would also be great for craft storage too - pompoms, beads, the possibilities are endless! Hope you found this little upcycle helpful. :)

    What kind of cricket labelmaker did you use? It's so cool.

    Thanks for your response.

    How about using a funnel made out of a soda bottle no waste

    I have arthritis. My hands usually hurt in the morning. I do love my coffee, but the containers of half and half are sometimes awkward to hold. I place my half and half in the coffee mate containers. Makes life simpler for me.

    The large containers of instant coffee, such as Folgers, work well for storage as well! 😀
