Great Stacking Storage Containers !

Sardine Tins Make Great Storage Containers!
My darling partner Kev likes the home brand sardines, as my brain is all ways thinking of ways to use what most people throw away I washed and kept a few then I realised how well they stack on top of each other and I thought what a great idea for storing paper clips, staples, rubber bands, sharpers and erasers. Or you could have them in your sewing/craft room and store needles, pins,bobbins or cottons or other craft supplies. Or you could have them in the shed and store nuts, bolts and washes. So many uses. I love that they stack on top of each other and you could put labels on the front of each one to save time so you know where the exact thing is that you want ! What do you think is it a good idea ? Please post if you have other ideas on what you would, could or do or will store in them.


  1. Brilliant idea, sardines on the shopping list for this week now!

  2. great idea.... now I need earing storage,,
    any suggestions for that

  3. I LOVE the way you think of these things Sherrie!

  4. That's such a good idea! I love storage that's made from things we have lying around. We always used to hang screw top jars from the shelves in our shed. Made it so easy to find everything!

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog too x
