Creative Ways to Reuse Your Crystal Light Containers

There are always tons of great coupons and sale deals on Crystal Light and I always end up with a bunch of containers!  I hate to just get rid of them, so often times they become a travel container for colored pencils/twistables crayons.  They are great to bring to a restaurant for the kids since the restaurants around here only give about 2 crayons, which usually break!   

While browsing on one of my favorite sites:  livingrichwithcoupons, I came across some great ideas that were posted on how to reuse these Crystal Light containers and I thought it would be great to share with all of you! 
How cute to repurpose a Crystal Light Container into an Easter Bunny! With Easter just a few days away this is the perfect way to put a candy bar or 2 in your kids Easter Baskets! You can even put them around your house and hide eggs in them. I love this idea!

Here are some other great ideas:

Cheese Storage
 How many times have you had to waste a plastic bag, or all of your tupperware was being used! Now you can store your half used cheese in those Crystal Light containers that you didn’t know what to do with!  

Art Storage
This is a very creative idea, especially if you love arts and crafts. Store your markers, pencils, erasers, anything in these containers. Glue them together anyway you would like and you have some awesome storage!

Sunglasses Case
Wow! I never would have thought to do this! Use your Crystal Light container to hold your sunglasses! You can make this any style you want just by gluing wrapping paper, putting gems or even paint the outside of the box!  

Perfect for Teachers
Teachers should save Crystal Light Containers because they can be used for anything! This teacher used them for her ABC bins. She put different items in the bin that represented the letter! This is just one of probably many uses that these containers have for teachers!
