    My DD says that if I didn't live with her I would be a hoarder for sure as I save plastic veggie and berry containers, pill bottles, Classico spaghetti sauce jars, and cardboard boxes. Use the plastic containers for scraps, pill bottles for used needles and beads, classico jars for buttons and the cardboard boxes to ship quilts in. Just can't stand to throw away anything that I can re-purpose and use....
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I have a stack of them and brought home 3 of them again last night. Love seeing the ideas others are using. Especially like the sloppy joe idea.

    I use them for my basting pins. Also just made freezer pickles and put them into the KFC containers with the red lids.

    Well anyone who needs help with clutter I will send Samantha (my brothers stepdaughter ) who is living with us. She throws out every thing I try and save unless I get it upstairs right away. Her thing is buy,buy,buy. I would rather spend my money on fabric.

    I save the large Crystal Light containers - they're tall and round.
    I use them for different things: rotary cutter holder for travel, storing buttons and stuff like that.

    my KFC sides containers have a measured serving of blueberries in each one..in the freezer....perfect for oatmeal each morning.......knew i had saved them for a reason, and when the blueberries were on sale, i found the reason.

    they stack and do not shift.....ideal for single servings in the fridge also

    Depends on what you ordered. Plain side dishes like coleslaw or potato's come in clear white containers with a red lid. Side salads come in a larger container, black with a clear lid.

    You guys are lucky you don't live by a Container Store. I have one within minutes and I keep going back and spending hours trying to figure out how to squeeze more stuff into my space.
