Organizing Tip That Repurposes A Pringles Can Into Storage

And no, it doesn't involve eating chips.

We love finding new ways to repurpose items around the house -- especially when they can help us stay neat and tidy. That's why when we came across this organizing tip from Chasing Green, we knew we had to share it with you.

If there are small trinkets or toys lying around, simply use an empty Pringles can to store them so they aren't in the way. You can also keep things like yarn, pens and pencils in the container so they're always within reach if needed.

We love this tip because not only is it very clever, but it transforms something that normally would be thrown away into a completely useful gadget. You can even dress up the canister with paper and other craft materials to make it pretty and presentable.
