|Repurposing a plastic Parmesan cheese container and lid.|
I'd just finished my Parmesan cheese. I'd cleaned the contained and saved it on my pantry shelf without a purpose in mind. Now I had one.
Tammy Taylor explained on her blog how she used the lid of a Parmesan cheese container with a half-pint canning jar with a regular mouth to make a new storage container for her baking soda.

I've always left my baking soda in it's box even though it's hard to get a measuring spoon in the small opening and out with the exact amount needed.
|The flat opening allows you to measure exactly what you need.|
Since I had a full box of baking soda, I decided to use the plastic container with it's flip-top lid just as it was. In addition to using the wide flat opening for measuring spoons, the side with round holes makes a shaker to use baking soda for cleaning projects. How cool is that?
|I taped on labels from the box so I could clearly identify the contents.|
Thank you Tammy for the inspiration to "Use Whatcha Got!" Another item is saved from the landfill, or at least gets a second life before it moves on to the recycle depot. And what of the old box? I repurposed it into fire starter for our woodstove. Now that's a win, win, win.
