Repurposing plastic storage containers

Answered on August 19, 2014

Say this guy you know, before embracing and stroking Paleo lovingly, thought he should own every gluten-free flour and starch known to the human race, and a variety of sugars on top of that. I know, barking mad he seems. What Paleo repurposing ideas would you suggest for that dozen or two lock-and-lock and other plastic storage containers he finally emptied and washed?

The Lock-and-Lock containers I have are BPA-free.

Could this guy... be you? I think I still have some soy flour leftover from low carb days, along with bags of various sugar alcohols for crap I don't make anymore.

Leftovers, that's what i use them for - but those containers can also be used to store nails, screws, etc. craft supplies, toiletries, etc. That way you are not dumping them in a landfill AND you don't have to worry about BPA etc. leaching into your food. I used to make bowls from old LPs, I'm sure you could find a craft/art use for them - repurposed junk art is all the rage now. ;)

Use them to store nuts or seeds in the fridge.

Shredded coconut. Nuts. Anything you buy in bulk- baking soda, laundry detergent-y stuff, dishwasher detergenty stuff. Coffee, tea.

Leftovers of course - I do it all the time now that I rarely finish what's on my plate.

As a side note, you may want to check that it's free from BPA and other harmful plasticisers which leech into food, playing such havoc on our endocrine systems that they have earned the nickname "obesogens".

Pots for fresh herbs. You can drill some holes at the bottom for soil drainage. :)
