Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post submitted by reader Amy

When my kids were toddlers, I ended up with a lot of left-over Gerber Graduates Puffs containers. I mean, A LOT. Ever the pack-rat, once they were empty, I began to wash and save them, vowing, “I’ll use these someday!”

Then one morning, as I looked at one perched on the countertop, an idea hit me. The container looked like a naked snowman! So I decided to dress him up. I raided my craft drawer for ribbon, pom-poms, chenille stems, wiggly eyes, and a glue gun. And I borrowed a sock from my daughter. In no time at all, I had made a snowman, without ever leaving the warmth of my home!

At first, I used my decorated snowmen for storing things that are easily misplaced around the holidays—extra light bulbs for the Christmas tree, ornament hangers, and those tiny batteries that nearly require a microscope to see. They also made a great “Snowman Dough-can,” a sort of holiday piggy bank, especially fun for encouraging kids to save money for gift-giving or charity donations. And I quickly realized that bite-size fudge, peanut butter balls, and chocolate-covered pretzel sticks fit inside, making the snowmen containers a perfect holiday gift to share with family and friends!
