Pringles are a delicious and popular family favorite snack. The chips are perfectly bite-sized and the air-tight container they come in keeps the chips fresh and safe from being crushed. Pringles are just all around awesome. But there are many ways a Pringles container could be re-purposed that you may never have considered.
Here are 10 awesome ways to re-purpose empty Pringles cans instead of just tossing them in the trash:
1. Store plastic bags
Plastic grocery bags have a funny way of taking over all kitchen cabinets and drawers, really creating a mess. You can contain them in a Pringles can by simply adding some cute paper to the outside and cutting a hole in the lid to dispense the bags when you need them. Learn how to make one here.
2. Share some cookies
Everyone loves cookies, making them the perfect gift! Instead of slowly losing your Tupperware, try transferring them in Pringles containers to keep them safe. Make your own here.
3. Dispense cotton pads
Small cotton pads are a must-have when it comes to a beauty routine. Storing them in a repurposed Pringles container makes using them quick and easy. Plus, you can decorate the container and leave it on the counter to convenience. Check it out here.
