  • I used old formula cans for grease catchers too. We would use old wipe boxes as storage containers for pacifiers, turned one into a first aid kit, kept grooming items in another. We didn't have a lot of them though because we would just buy refill packs and use the same box again and again. The ones we had leftover were actually just the extras that we had gotten at my son's baby shower.

  • If you have any older kids you could have them create a time capsule since it's the beginning of a new year.

  • I used the wipe boxes for toy cars and also my dd's head bands, or hair stuff.

  • I use old wipes containers to hold puzzle pieces and small toys. I also have one that I use as a plastic bag dispenser. My 2 year old and I peeled off the label of a formula can and decorated it and the lid with stickers and that's where he keeps his crayons.
