In other words, we've got a pantry full of them and up until now the only thing they're good for, aside from being incredibly handsome, are to hold big bags of peanuts. Or at least what's left of big bags of peanuts. But guess what I just discovered is the purrrrfect height to fit snugly inside? A big box of spaghetti, and thanks to a screw on lid it will still be safe and sound in the pantry even after I knock it on the ground while trying to find that half empty packet of taco seasoning that's somewhere on the top shelf under a tower of tuna cans. Indeed, it is discoveries like this that make life worth living.
P.S. Since we're talking about reusing, in the spirit of full disclosure to all who attended the shower last week, when I said my gift was dressed in leftover Christmas wrapping paper, I wasn't joking.
