I covered one with pretty paper and painted the lid. It now houses my bottle of lube so it doesn't stand on display on my nightstand  Cheesy
Now what to do with the other 10 of these that I have? The other ideas in this thread are great, I'll have to use some of those.

Please keep this topic going! I've got a good 20 or so of these tubes and really hate just tossing them in the garbage... and there's no recycling here.

Of note, the drink mix containers are plastic('ish) and very light. Filling them with pens and pencils is a great idea, but does make them top-heavy and very easy to topple over.

The tubes are about 6 1/2" tall with a diameter of 2 5/8". They are almost always translucent white but may have different colored (and labeled) tops.. Wyler's Light tops are blue.

I've switched to single serving drinks because there's no more room for these tubes! Smiley

Well I did discover that a dozen cookies fit in the tube Smiley perfect for mailing Smiley

AND... enough powdered drink mix (loose) for a decent gift.

You can use them to freeze water in and use in your cooler when you go to the beach.  Add one in each corner and in the middle of your cooler...  we use one at work to put sugar and creamer in for our morning coffee.  I also think they would be great to store your hair ties in.  They also make good containers to take Ritz crackers in on a trip...keeps the crackers from getting crushed. 

Another idea is to freeze Hawaiian punch in for a party to add to the punchbowl.

Hope these ideas help.  I am all for recycling!

My local animal shelter asks for these to put out at stores for collections - they put pictures of the animals on them, then place them by the cash registers at area convenience stores.  I would imagine other charities might be interested in using them for the same thing.

OK these are great ideas. This weekend I stuffed one with banana peels and tossed it in the fridge until I'm ready to use the peels in my pots or compost. Smiley
