No, no we are not talking about used litter or the actual litter itself.

We are using TWB litter now and it comes in a bag but before, our litter came in these big jugs. The PM kept them as she thought they would be useful for something and she figured that something out!

She was organizing all the craft supplies as the MM just put up some shelves in the playroom and thought these would be perfect. She gathered up all the jugs, took off the labels and washed them out.


Then she gathered up a box cutter and scissors.


She took the jug and cut a big opening around the spout. This is very tricky and you have to be very careful as the box cutter is super sharp and the plastic isn't very stable. We really couldn't watch that part.


Then you are left with great container for small items!


She then used some Sharpies to make a label for each one.


Label it.


Then fill it up!


Here they are on the shelves. Very handy and cheap too!!!

What a great idea. It also gives me hope that the pile of stuff I have collected in a cupboard 'just incase' may one day be put to use! :P

Could the PM please come over and organise our mom's stuff? She's a little collector, so everything looks cluttered.

What a fab idea!

The Monkeys said...

What a great idea! We used to use that litter too (No Name, right?) but our Mom is not nearly as creative as yours!

We are most impressed since what we have here is ONE GIANT MESS!

Eric and Flynn said...

That is a very good idea. Our litter comes in plastic bags though.

Cory said...

What a great idea...mom is a wee bit unorganized and she could use your help!

Ariel said...

Your mom's very clever love it :)

Kitty Stampede said...

how creative!! great way at reusing for sure. We just started on the WBL...loving it. It smells faintly like barn..hahaha..but I love it...its far better than other dust filled ones and it clumps perfectly. I'm totally sold...oh ya, there is a another brand that is slightly cheaper that my sister in law gets and its essentially the same thing. I'll have to get the name.

That is a great idea; a cute, inexpensive way for organization, very creative!

How furry cwafty! We go through a lot of these each month at our house...if you lived close we would save em for you!Maybe mewmie will put them in the attic and save them for a yard sale?

We have some of those containers, too. The Big Thing uses them as refill containers from the big litter tubs he buys now. He says they are a lot easy to handle.

That is a super idea and very clever of your Mom to think of that. We could us some of those but our litter comes in bags and we like to shred the bags if we can get to them. Have a great week end.

Christine and FAZ said...

That's very crafty (geddit).

Thank you for all your kind wishes recently when I wasn't feeling well, everyone's healing purrs obviously helped to get me better.

What a fabulous idea, on how to get use out of empty litter jugs! Your PM is very clever.
