I can't quite claim this idea as my own but it's still a good one.
I saw someone had saved their empty Coffee-mate bottles to use for other stuff. I used one for my home-made laundry soap and have been saving the rest for something - just wasn't sure what. Yesterday I pulled out a bag of brown rice. You know the bags - about a pound or so of rice in a plastic bag that can't be resealed. I hate those darn things because you are forced to put the whole bag in a ziplock or something and it's still VERY difficult to pour out into a measuring cup. Thus my idea. Put the rice in one of my empty Coffee-mate bottles that has a nice pour spout! I cut off out the label and the directions from the bag and used clear packing tape to stick them to the bottle. Voila!
