How do you recycle your Tupperware or plastic containers? Do you use them on your desk? Could you reuse them in your garden, for some purpose? Recently, I found several old pieces of Tupperware in my cabinet. I'm not interested in using them to store food anymore. I thought it might be nice to recycle the Tupperware into desk accessories. I have so many gadgets and pens and such. It would help to keep them organized in a little bowl. Maybe I could use them to store craft supplies, buttons and such. I have tons of that stuff scattered around the house. I've considered using them on my porch. But, I can't think what I'd put into them. Maybe something will come to me, tomorrow. What do you think? What do you think I should do with the old Tupperware?

We use them around here to store random things in them. My mom us using one large container right now to store jewelery in. The jewelery have their own separate boxes but she doesn't have anywhere else to put them so the container really comes in handy. My grandfather uses them to store things like screws, nuts, bolts and nails in them. You probably could use them to store kids craft supplies in them too.

I reuse my old containers for my painting. I store supplies in them and also fill them with water to rinse my brushes. I use the lids to blend my paints. If that doesn't strike you fancy (not sure if you paint or not) and if you can't think of any uses for them, you could try freecycling them ( I'm sure there is someone near you that might need them!
