container lidsMy Tupperware cupboard is a scattered collection of mis-matched containers and lids. Cleaning it out, I found far more lids than containers. Typically, I would just get rid of the extra lids, making a collection of matching containers. Lifehacker points us to these top 12 uses for plastic container lids.

Little round lids make great coasters for kids. You could use the slightly larger ones as plant coasters, keeping water from dripping outside the pot. Toss aside the abrasive scrubbers, and use a plastic lid to scrape your pots and pans. they are strong, non-stick and won't damage things. The crafting options are endless, like using lids as paint pallets, glitter, or bead holders or as a protective piece to catch glue gun drips.

Have you re-used stray container lids? Tell us how!

    A large lid can be cut from the perimeter to the center, the center can be cut as wide as the beater blade stems of your mixer. Place lid around the stems, between mixer body and blades to contain ingredients when mixing for cakes, breads etc.
