    We reuse wipes containers for everything! Small toys, markers/crayons, art supplies, hair bows … I hadn’t thought of this one though. Will def use it. We are beyond the wipes stage now, but sometimes I buy them for the box 😉 and they are good to have on hand for sticky hands and feet! The Cottonelle wipes containers work great too we use those for pop tabs (collect for our Children’s Hospital) and box tops. The decorative ones don’t look too bad sitting on the kitchen counter.

    I love this idea! I think next time I have a wipes container i will do this..Great tip to keep down under cabinet clutter.

    We love reusing those containers! They are the perfect size for all the little crayons, hot wheels, legos, and other small items (and in small quantities)! And no huge loss if one of they gets messed up or thrown away! :)

    We use tissue boxes for plastic bags in the same manner. So if you don’t have too many wipes containers around, a tissue box works, too.

      Yes, using empty tissue boxes works great, especially if you don’t have a need to buy baby wipes containers.

    I love this idea. I hate having wads of bags lying in my pantry or in a cabinet. They drive me insane…but they are a dead useful. lol

    I reuse my wipes containers all the time too! We use them to store plastic bags, the kids’ art supplies, kids’ hair accessories, candy, our stockpile of travel sized personal care items and so much more!

    I mostly use wipe boxes for…. cloth wipes 😉

    But now that we have a few of the boxes floating around, I also use them to corral hairbows, crayons, and other small child-related things.

    For the people that had “too many” you can always donate them back at your local grocery store. WalMart has a green recycle box right next to the pop machines. Kind of hard to see though, just ask a worker.

    I buy wipes in bulk. They come in a cardboard box and each container-sized bundle is in a bag.

  10. says

    I just buy a couple of containers and then refill them by buying in bulk. But the plastic bag dispenser is a good idea and I definitely need to corral my grocery sacks. We use old wipes containers for crayons, markers, and art supplies.

  11. says

    We use empty wipe containers to hold crayons, and other art supplies. We have another container with hair bows, barrettes etc in the bathroom. Perfect size for just about anything!

    wowza! This is brilliant! Also a huge thanks to the person who suggested the car idea, thank you!!! Now my car can stay half way clean!

  13. Sandy says

    This got me to thinking….you could put your GPS or kids video games in them when they need to stay in the car. Who would think of something important being in a wet wipe container? Just me! :)
