Run, Don't Walk!

If you love containers as much as I do, you will want to run to the nearest Dollar Store to see if they have these:


They weren't one dollar...they were only 50 cents each! Amazing! I can think of so many fun things to do with these. I will save my ideas until a little closer to Halloween, though. Apparently, these were left over from last year. Where was I last year? Maybe you have them already, but if not, go see if they are still available!
{Local readers: I nearly cleaned out the Warren/Central City Pkwy store. I left a few good ones and a few that were missing handles. I didn't see any at the Sheldon/Ford store. Yep, I checked! Good luck!}

Now, if you aren't ready to think about Halloween yet, I also found these in the dollar section at Target.
Lots of obvious things to do with these so I thought I needed a few on hand. $1 seemed expensive after my previous find, so I only got a few. Besides, we still have 3 weeks before school starts again and I am not looking forward to it!

I don't know if I am going to use these this year or not so you'll have to stay tuned. I think they might work better for a Teacher Appreciation gift in the spring.

Just thought I should keep you informed because I am nice like that.

HAHAHAHA...Shannon's comment made me laugh. They still would be awesome as decorative things for halloween. I gotta see if my dollar store has them. Thanks for inspiration.

They will hold the M&M people M&M holders! Ha! I love containers also! I love putting kid bday gifts in them. Those are cute spider baskets....great for neighbor or friend gifts to hold candy~bigger than M&M's of course! Also a great seasonal basket for a teacher to have!
