    Use for paint when using a smaller brush or for touch ups!

    I keep the used coffee grounds for the garden in them once they are dry.

    They make great canisters to hold your toliet bowl brushes. Also most plungers fit inside the larger empty coffee canisters.

    I use them for gathering lots of loose but similar items together. I use them for a grease I intend to dispose of, gathering the taller screwdrivers that do not like to fit in a tool box, I put coins in one, a sick bed garbage can, a "heave-in-here" can, a car garbage can, a place to keep the paper towels from rolling off the table at a picnic, Crayon bucket for the kids, paint them your special color and store items from you cupboards, like flour (line them with plastic first if you need to). I decorated a couple and put them in my bathroom for holding curling iron, hair dryer....one for brushes and combs... These items look like clutter normally, but in a decorated can they are okay. Store toys like leggos, little girls kitchen dishes sets, My canasta tray and playing cards along with pencils and score sheets all fit in one.

    If you save the grounds putting the lid on tightly, you can put it in soil around flowers. I also use it as a dipper in my big bags of soil. You can also use the grounds or left over coffee to dye clothes that may be stained or napkin or whatever. Use it to store plastic medicine bottles with screws, nails or little things you don’t want to loose. Just a few!!
