Upcycle After Sunday Brunch
Egg cartons are just the right size to corral small, loose objects like paper clips, thumbtacks and erasers in your desk drawer; sewing supplies, such as threads, buttons and safety pins in a junk drawer; or, condiments (placed upside down) in your fridge, which puts an end to having to continuously bang on the ketchup bottle to get it to come out of the bottle.

Thing to remember: Wash foam egg cartons with soap and hot water, and cardboard ones with rubbing alcohol, before using the egg cartons, in order to kill any bacteria on them.
