    I needed storage for my crumbs, and 1.5" squares. In an attempt to use what I have and not spend any money, I have found that I can fit over 3,000 1.5" squares, and a TON of crumbs in my Folgers coffee can(the large one of course). They are small, you can seperate according to color, or any thing else. They stack nicely on top of each other and there is no cash going out!The handle on them is nice also! Just food for thought!

    Those cans come in handy for a lot of stuff. I'm just amazed that you counted all those squares and crumbs. :)

    There is a 1 1/2" square swap going on here.. Think you could enjoy even more variety? Just a thought...
    Clever idea!

    How many times did you lose your count before you got to 3,000? Good idea.
