TIC TAC HAIRPINS, ANYONE?
I almost stopped using these little hair pins simply because it was annoying to find them scattered all over my drawer. But then, I came across an empty TicTac dispenser. Once again, I pondered on some other use for these little containers before throwing them in the recycle bins. Ding, ding, ding! It hit me...why not use them as hair pin dispensers! It is simple storage (compact and see-thru) and the hair pins are easy to dispense!
Besides hair pins, these dispensers can be used for toothpicks, paper clips, sewing needles, etc. They can be handy to take on road trips, when you don't want to take your bulky storage containers.
Keep this in mind when you run across other small plastic containers. Before you consider getting rid of them, you might want to rethink about ways to repurpose them! :)
