She fills a Coffee Mate container with water, cuts off the label, and we are SO doing this in our kitchen!

We go through Coffee Mate creamers like crazy here at the office and wanted to find a way to reuse them instead of throwing them out. We found some inspiration and decided to turn them into useful kitchen storage!

First, just make sure you dump out any of the remaining creamer.

To get the label off, first you will place the scissors right under the label and give it a snip.

If you don’t want to wait for these to air dry inside you can just use our little hack. We used a knife and a paper towel to get those hard to reach areas.

Next, take a piece of printer paper and roll it into a funnel to pour the cereal into the the container.
