Uses for baby wipes containers

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Having only a 1-year-old at our house has given us a few baby wipe containers.  What do you do with yours?  They are so cute I don't want to just throw them away!  I've used a couple of them to put baby's odds and ends like diaper rash cream samples in, but what are some other ideas?  Thanks!

I put baby socks and hair accessories in them.

You can store crayons or other craft items in them.  Storing a collection of marbles in them as well.

Marketing question: Why don't they make these in CLEAR plastic? That would make them so much more valuable.

I saw a cute idea on Pinterest a while back, and now I can't find it, but I ran across this site 50 Uses for Those Rectangular Baby Wipes Containers!  Have fun!

I use mine for jewelery and stuff when I travel.

 

I keep one in the boat full of sunscreen and first aid stuff that we might need. I keep them in a big zip lock bag, to make sure they are water proof.

 

I also have one in my craft room, to hold odds and ends in.

I saved a bunch of those fake credit card type things and let my baby put them in the slot.  It was a favorite game.  You could also cut strips or squares of fabric and stuff them inside so baby can pull them out like a box of tissues.

 

I have one with the lid off in my kitchen cupboard that holds all the "kid" utensils.

 

Keep some snacks in the car.

 

Sort toys. We have one with cars and one with mini animals and dinosaurs.

Cookie, I totally agree!  Clear would be so nice!

They can be used to hold extra coins until you can redeem them at the bank or a local CoinStar machine.

I think they would work great for Lego storage so you don't lose kit pieces.
