Hello Everyone out there in DPL Land! I hope you’re having a great weekend, despite the sizzling weather conditions in a great deal of North America. In an act of gratitude for being blessed with paradise-like weather where I live (currently 70F with gentle breeze), I thought I’d show you a quick and easy way to make fun snack containers to give a second life to bottles you might otherwise discard, and to also tidy up your pantry shelves.
If you have something like this in your refrigerator …
And something like this in your pantry ….
When that bottle is empty, remove the screw top, wash it out, let it dry and then cut the label off like this (please ignore the fact that my model is not yet empty) …
Then fill it up like this.
A perfect way to keep snacks fresh and places like the car nice and tidy on a trip because of the cool dispensing lid. When the snacks are gone, it’s easy to screw off the top for a refill.
Lots of snacks are the right size … things like nuts, pretzel sticks, Cheerios and on and on.
P.S. See that counter top of mine … the 1970’s ceramic tile with gray grout (yes, it is gray and I do clean it although I do worry from time to time that someone might assume it’s supposed to be white)? This could be the last time you will ever see it. After 27 years in this house, my antique (read: pathetic, worn out, used up) kitchen is on its way to the dump. We are remodeling! I am thinking about doing weekend updates here on the blog to show you what I am sure is going to be a long and tedious project because, ta-da … we’re going to do this ourselves. If the hubster agrees to let you follow his work, next weekend I’ll post the before (which means current) pictures including (and it pains me to tell you this) the world’s oldest microwave that still works despite being held together with duct tape.
