Parachute Cord Storage

Keep Parachute Cord Tangle-Free The best way to store 550 parachute cord is in an empty plastic peanut butter jar. Drill a 3⁄16-inch-diameter hole in the lid. Stuff the cord into the jar (careful not to overlap it), and thread the end about 4 inches through the hole you made. Screw the lid back on, and pull out as much cord as you need. Kiss tangles good-bye. —Jim Ratermann, Tipp City, Ohio

The wonderful Crystal Light container

I often ask my friends if they have any Crystal Light containers I can have.  I love this magical container.  I reuse them in numerous ways.

Sight words.  Write down your children's sight words on craft sticks and put into this container.  Makes a fun game.

Plastic cutlery for when camping, 72-hour kit, and Emergency Prep. (need stuff for the kiddos to do)

Store your kids crayons, markers, coloring pencils for when you take a road trip or camping.


This is just a snipit of what you can do with Crystal Light containers.
