Pringles are a popular snack food, and for good reason. The chips are the perfect size and always stay fresh, mostly because of the air-tight container they come in.
Plus, the Pringles tube is the perfect size for a cup holder on road trips. Snacking purposes aside, though, the Pringles can has a million other possible uses that you’ve probably never considered.
Here are 10 amazing ways to recycle empty Pringles cans that you’ll want to give a shot right away!
1. Plastic bag storage
Don’t let those plastic grocery bags take over your drawers and cabinets a second longer! Contain all of the bags you have in a skinny Pringles container. All you have to do is add some cute paper to the outside and cut a wide hole in the lid to push the bags through! Check it out here.
2. Cookie gift box
Cookies are a great gift, but sometimes it’s hard to transfer them without turning all of them into cookie crumbs instead! Pringle containers will keep the stack safe and in tact. Just make sure you don’t bake them too big! Check it out here.
3. Cotton pad dispenser
If these little cotton pads aren’t in your beauty routine, then there’s a whole other conversation we need to have. If they are, though, this is really the most convenient, and cutest, way to store them. Check it out here.
4. Pasta jar
