I just want to see if anyone has any ideas for using juice jugs. My son drinks a lot of juice and I hate to just throw them away. I've already turned one into a kitchen spoon holder and another one I painted and made it into a vase to hold dried flowers. So any ideas woud be very helpful. Thanks!

Why is it that I can no longer buy anything that has a slight chance I could make it myself? Even if I don't know how to make it, or it's cheaper to buy...I can no longer buy it because "I could make that myself".

I use them to store dry goods, such as different types of flour etc. I buy a lot in bulk or "Bob's Red Mill" in those plastic bags, so I stick the label inside against the glass so I'll know what it is, the juice bottles keep them very well.

Are these jugs plastic or cardboard? Are they clear? I have six kids so we drink a lot of juice! I have ideas for both. Just give me a better description of them so I know which to post. Thanx, d

juicy juice comes in a large tin can... about the size of a coffee can, maybe a little taller

They are just plastic jugs. one is a little taller and squarish. The other type is a little smaller and round. they're both clear. I just hate to throw them away. I use about 5 jugs a week.

You can cut the top off below the handle and wrap a little batting around it and then glue some material over that and make pretty catchalls. I did this with detergent bottles and put ribbon around it and have it in my bathroom holding washcloths, in the other one I did, I have it holding soap.You could do this to coordinate with any room you needed to use them for. You can also use them cutting just below the top at an angle and keeping the handle, to put paint in when you are painting, makes it so much easier to go up a step ladder carrying it with you instead of making so many trips.
