Anyone with kids has more left over baby wipe and food containers than they know what to do with. You hate to throw them away because, damn it, they could be useful. You just, don't know what for. I have some ideas! Baby wipe boxes: You can buy one diaper wipe box and then get wipe refills, but I think every parent has that moment where it's cheaper to buy the diaper wipe boxes because they are on sale, you forget you have baby wipe boxes or maybe even you're out of town and forgot that neatly packed diaper bag on the bed. Either way with kids you eventually end up with quite a few baby diaper wipe boxes, and really you likely only use one, possibly two for wipes actively. What you could do with them: Organize your closet/junk: Baby wipe boxes are the perfect size for stackable storage everywhere from the kitchen to the garage. Crayons, coins, carpentry nails, tiny pink fruity drink umbrellas, you name it, it's safe and neat in a baby wipe box. Crafts/Playtime: Re-use them for those same kids you bought them for. Make treasure boxes and play pirates, or place clues in each one and hide them around the house for a fun scavenger hunt. Safe guard camping supplies: Baby wipe boxes are also fairly water proof so when camping they make a good place to store those important things you like to keep dry and easy to find, like the toilet paper and a flash light. If you want to cut out the boxes all together mom to mom makes a wipe that comes in a bag with an easy pull spout. No more boxes! Less expensive! You can read my review here. Baby food jars or containers: There is no accidentally bought more or forgot the diaper bag about baby food jars, if you aren't making baby food at home, you've got a surplus of jars. Some people throw these away, and what a waste of good glass these tiny bottles have uses too. Or is that tiny tubs? Gerber seems to have recently changed some of their packaging from good old glass to small Tupperware like boxes. Don't worry you can use those for most these ideas too. What you could do with them: Crafts: Baby food jars or tubs may be small, but then so are many craft supplies such as beads. The tubs especially work well for this because they seal tight but open easy. You can also use jars and tubs literally in crafts decorate them with the kids so they can store their tiny treasures. Cooking: Grow your own herbs and don't know what to do with the excess? Dry it, and store it in baby food jars. You can buy herb jars in stores, but their basically the same thing. You can also buy bulk and use the baby food jars to save space on your spice shelf. Put the big bottle in a pantry. Re-using baby wipe boxes and food jars are another wonderful way to recycle and help keep our planet alive and supporting us. It also saves you money! And these are just some general ideas of the world of uses they could have.
