I would never have thought to recycle and reuse a Nesquik box, but as I emptied it upside down into my glass last night, I noticed that the bottom of the box said "Dishwasher safe on top rack" or something along those lines, and I thought, now why would I want to wash this in the dishwasher...UNLESS I could find something to do with it!

But what??

Anyone have any ideas? It's one of the oval-ish looking plastic boxes, bright yellow.

I've been pondering this for a while now and all I've come up with is a pencil or crayon box (decorate the outside) OR use to store stuff--matchbox cars, scrap paper, marbles, craft supplies, army men, whatever!

Sorry I can't think of anything more original!
