  • So many things really....spare change, toy collections like legos or action figures, etc. If nothing else and you want to get rid of it, list it on Yahoo freecycle in your area. I see them listed all of the time and they are snapped up immediately. I guess I worry about too much junk in the landfills myself.

  • If I don't mind the design on it then I would use it in the family room to store toys. But if it is a more seasonal design then I use it for sotrage in the garage or attic. You can really use them for anything. I would keep it and reuse rather than just junk a perfectly good container.

  • you can if you have room. I would used it for kids blocks or puzzle pieces. Crayons and art supplies.

  • I use them for extra trash cans in the bedroom or computer room, to store blocks and even dog toys in.

  • Spare change is what I'd use it for. Mom-2-4boys also has a good idea.

  • We have always used it as an extra trash can. I really like sweetstkissez22 idea for using it to save for a vacation though. I think I might just steal that idea.

  • We keep one of the big sized ones in our coat closet to store hats and gloves in. In the winter we pull it out and put it by the door so we can easily grab a hat out before leaving the house.

  • I think they are sort of flimsy? more flimsy now than they used to be? the one we just got not to long ago bent pretty easily so we're going to recycle it but one that I ahve had forever has little toys in it
