And it seems to have gone beyond jars, now. I dug out the last scoop of vanilla ice cream that we had been working on for a while. I didn't even hesitate when I put the container in the dishwasher instead of our recycling bin. Then I went to dreaming up the possibilities.
This hand container can hold loads of different things - different bags of opened veggies, the pot pies I make for quick lunches for The Mister, our quick smoothie packs... So, I decided to jazz it up a bit.
My go to jazzer-upper these days is a trust container of chalkboard paint. Because this is on plastic, I knew doing several coats would be important. I wasn't interested in painting the whole container - just cover up the words.
Some trusty painters tape was applied. And the coats went on.
It flakes up a bit, which is ok for me right now. But I would recommend anyone doing this to either go the spray paint method or add a base coat down first. I am happy with our new freezer storage container and it is quite useful.
Anyone find a way to use things normally thrown out to organize your home?
