Day 1 eat contents afterwards you have these options punch holes in the bottom of the tin and use as a cheese grater or colander use as a container for liquids use as a pastry cutter use the lid to slice tomatoes or eggs use to store things put your paint brushes, pencils etc in to stop them rolling all over the place save the paper wrappings from the tins to make paper mache HAVE FUN :-)

Ok, I don't like Baked Beans, so what do I do now? Here is another Idea for it, put whole in the Bottom, put a nice Plant in it, and give it to your Friend, but ..... don't tell her you have put Holes in the Bottom, tell her when she waters it to hold it over her Partner and then he will get wet and that is for all the cheek that he has been dishing out. Is that a good Idea, definatly have fun.

Well, I suppose, lol! In this country tins are recyled by squashing them up, using a lot of energy to melt them down and them re-form them, but some of us like to get their full use out of them before they are recycled lol.
