Mothers And Fathers Little Helper

Think quickly, what is the most handy item in your Kitchen? The blender? Hand Mixer? Electric Frying Pan? How about your collection of durable Ginsu Knives?  Well, they all are good and all come in handy, but perhaps the most appreciable item in your home has got to be the versatile Margarine container. Sure at first it is only good because of the yellowy oil based substance that it contains but it’s importance comes in to play after you have scraped out the last little bit of bread crumb infested product, washed it and stored it away with the countless other margarine containers that you have. Take a look in your bottom cupboard where your storage containers are and count how many you have, I can wait…okay, finished, I bet you have at least 10 and you use them all the time don’t you?  Who hasn’t stored leftover mashed potatos in them?  My wife has used them to mix paint in  for small touchup projects,we store battery’s and other small assorted items that have come out of a package. We use them in our freezer, they make great storage for hamburgers that are left over after a BBQ, and how many of us have sent them on to other family members after a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner full of turkey and all the trimmings, I know that I always wind up with extra containers after a family get together. And on those occasions when my Wife goes on her summer retreat to New Brunswick they make great dinner plates,  I have had many salads and kraft Dinner meals out of those suckers during those times. They make a great money holders, with the advent of the Loonie and Toonie we have a lot more change in our pockets and here in Cambridge i would suspect there are many men who have a margarine container on their nightstand that has more than a  few coins in it. I often take one when my wife and I go on our country walks with the family dog, they make a great water bowl for his majesty. I know people that make jello in them, just turn them upside down and out comes a wonderful looking mold, old S.O.S pads and kitchen sponges can be stored in them,powdered laundry soap can be transported to the laundromat in them for those who live in apartment buildings.  If you entertain and make your own chip dip as I do, the Sour Cream containers can also be used as a serving bowl after you make the dip. While I am not much of a handyman I have a Cool Whip Container that has an assortment of nails and screws in them and while it is not a margarine container it works along the same line. And of course with all the uses for them one that I have not mentioned is donating them to schools and day care centers for the young ones to use, gotta get them trained early I always say.
