Reader Help - Baby Wipes Containers

Jill wrote in asking what to do with her extensive stash of baby wipe containers.

Here are some of my ideas:
If they are the boxier kind, building blocks for kids
Barbie Clothes Trunk
Snow or Sand Fort Brick Molds
Car First Aid Kit, fill one for each vehicle with bandaids, alcohol wipes, etc.
Car Kleenex Holder - Kleenex boxes always get smooshed in my car, so take the kleenex out of the paper box and put them in baby wipe box for durability in the car
Drawer Organizers
Craft Item Organizers
Ribbon Holder - Get a small dowel rod slightly longer than the baby wipe box, cut two holes in the opposite sides of box for the dowel rod to fit through, thread spools of ribbon onto the dowel rod and then insert it in the holes and now you have a box of ribbons where you can just pull the ribbon off the spool without getting tangled messes
Planters, using 2, Cut one in half (cut off top half) and the other one cut some holes in the bottom. Nestle the holey one in the cut one and fill it with a plant or herb garden for kitchen window.
There were a few things I already wrote on the blog in the past about how to use them.

Do you have any ideas on how to use a lot of baby wipe containers besides the above? Leave them in the comment area.

We've featured baby wipe containers on our site, How Can I Recycle This? and have got some more suggestions for reuses on there:

We've also explored how people can reduce their use of baby wipes, including advice on how to carry moist reusable cloths outside the home.

I'm not sure if these containers still come in the tubular form but I am still using one 13 years later for hair washing (now of the pets). Cherrie

Another suggestion for either baby wipes or shoe box: cut a hole in the lid for TP, velcroe the end shut. Its a good nose hanky for the car. I havent used klenex for some time. I buy the cheap dollar TP.
