It seems that in our hectic and cluttered lives we need storage containers all the time. A storage container for office supplies, or crafting supplies - or whatever other goodies seem to get gathered in huge piles around our homes!
Instead of necessarily buying new containers, check out the food containers you already have. Old jam jars, for instance, washed out and dried, are perfect little clear glass containers to hold office supplies such as rows of staples or extra paper clips. Or, how about large plastic jars? They can be used to store laundry detergent, or pet food.
Look through your kitchen cupboards and you might be surprised...once the food is gone, the container left behind might be very useful to you!
