WFMW: Old Applesauce Cups

Pin It Now!
I am not sure why I washed and saved these snack-sized applesauce cups, but they sure have come in handy around my house!


* They make great paint cups because they don't spill as easily.

* I also keep one in my kitchen cabinet and one in the kids' bathroom cabinet for storing ponytail holders. (I have to tie up my daughter's hair when she eats and when she brushes her teeth.)


** I am sure they could be used for a million other things like: dishes for your daughter's kithchen, bathtub toys--for filling up and dumping water, etc.

Any suggestions?

Great ideas! I'm always up for another idea on how to reuse something that would otherwise end up in the trash.

I like your ideas! The ponytail holders one is particularly clever. I don't buy applesauce or pudding cups myself, but I'm constantly finding them in the recycling bins I manage for my church, and most of them are not recyclable here (#7 plastic) so they just go in the trash. I'll suggest that the preschool renting space at my church save those cups for painting!

How funny! I just started saving these myself b/c they're so cute. We tried putting our guinea pigss' food in them, but they were too lightweight and kept tipping over. Other than that, the only other ideas I've come up with are paint and individual serving cups for condiments/dip.

Hey girl - thanks for trying to take my poll! As for the two headers...

click on “Compatibility View” (an icon right after the URL that looks like a piece of paper ripped in half) and that should fix it immediately. It’s an Internet Explorer (IE) issue.

I'm going to start saving mine now too! I hate using my Tupperware snack cups for paint cups. And great tip for ponytail holders too!
