      Default Uses for empty 2-liter bottles?

      If you had a bunch of 2 liter soda bottles, what would you do with them?

      I have a bunch on hand, and am trying to think up ways to use them.

      I can:

      Use them for kool aid, juice from concentrate, and reconstituted powdered milk.

      Maybe use them to store my homemade laundry detergent once it's mixed up.

      Any other ideas? I know there's a lot of gardening uses for them but I don't garden. besides: it's just about wintertime now.

      Michelle, I am laughing so hard right now you should take a look in my pantry. Let me tell you what I have done with the 2-liter bottles: I am using them to store:
      Oatmeal
      Flour
      Sugar
      Powdered Sugar
      Hot Cocoa Mix
      Rice
      Dried Beans
      Corn Meal
      Oil
      Instant potatoes
      Elbow Macaroni
      Chocolate Chips
      Splenda

      I am still trying to think of other uses.

      I've never used them for resoring stuff because I find that the hole on top is too small and I get the stuff all over my counter,guess I could use a funnel and store my rice in them (buy it in bulk at Sam's Club) I have used them at a kids camp for bowling pins, just put a little sand in the bottom to give them some weight and they can use any kind of ball to knock them down, or even a frisbee if the are kept light enough.

      I cut the top off of one bottle, hold it onto the other for the perfect funnel.
      Forgot about the bowling idea, have tried that with water. Also ice bowling-freeze them then take them outside in the cold (which I have plenty of ) and make a snowball to knock them down.

      They can be used by filling 3/4 full with water & put in freezer when it isn't full enough. If the power goes out you will have drinking water. Plus it will help keep the freezer cold when the power is out.

      We did thes projects when the Boys were in Scouting....

      Conserve----
      Fill the two liter bottle with water and place it in your toilet tank to use less water with every flush.

      Bird feeder----
      Use a knife to cut two holes at the bottom of the bottle large enough to slide a stick through for a bird perch (perfect use for a disposable chopstick!). Next, cut a few holes above the perch for retrieving seed. Finally, fill with seed, tie a string around the top and hang.

      Flower pot----
      Decorate the bottom half of the soda bottle and plant a flower.

      Gift wrap and or mailing Package----
      Decorate the exterior of the bottle with ribbon and markers then cut a slit in the back big enough to get your hand through. Place the gift inside-- Seal the opening with clear packing tape. Now you have a mailable package.

      Make a Bank - Paint or cover with fabric. Cut a small slit in the top so you can drop the coins in.
      Make a Doorstop - Paint and fill with sand or gravel.

      The boys also made these items too. I almost forgot about these.

      I take mine to the recycler (5 each), get cash, spend it at the market.
