Egg cartons ain’t just for kids craft projects. They could be a saving grace if you love crafting, jewelry, or art. Here are some ideas for what to do when you have some extra cartons on hand:
MONEY CONTAINER: Tis the season for garage and yard sales, fa la la la la, la la la la! Use those empty egg cartons to organize change. Giving change will be easier and faster because you can easily see where everything is.
GOLF BALL STORAGE: Here’s another Father’s Day idea for those daddies who like to spend time on the green. Have your kids (or you can do it yourself!) decorate an empty egg carton and fill it with brand new golf balls for dad. It’s a fun presentation and easy storage for the off-season.
STORAGE FOR SMALL ITEMS: Egg cartons are great for holding jewelry, beads, paint, earrings, necklaces, threads, etc. They come in especially handy when traveling. Throw in your jewelry, wrap a rubber band around the carton and pack it away. Same goes for craft supplies and desk supplies. You can easily see everything since it’s spread out and storage is a breeze. On that same note, you could use egg cartons to store small Christmas ornaments.
GREEN LIVING: Poke a few holes in the bottom of each cup for drainage and use these nifty cartons as seed starters.
FIRE STARTERS: Summer means BBQ and bonfires in our house and egg cartons (filled with dryer lint) make great fire starters.
TACO NIGHT!: Flip egg cartons over and place hard shell tacos in between the egg wells to hold many tacos at a time.
