Ten ways to use a vintage fridge containerPosted: July 9, 2014
Vintage fridge containers have gotten way more expensive in the past few years, especially the jadeite ones. But that’s no excuse for leaving them on a shelf to collect dust. Here are ten simple ways to use them.
They’re spectacular at hiding the last piece of cherry pie.
Unlike modern, flimsy see-through plastics, old glass fridge containers completely conceal the contents. That can be a very good thing if you have a good memory. Otherwise, you’ll have vintage leftovers with nice green mold. User beware!
Okay. That was too easy.
Move a container to your sink and put it to work.
I use three different fridge containers for flatware when I do a buffet. I love mixing jadeite and red Bakelite.
Move out of the kitchen and park a dish or two where you drop your keys and electronic things.
I do the same thing with my glasses.
Organize your desk top. (Alas, not your computer desktop.)
Corral all your sewing doohickies right by your work area.
Make a mini collection of your nail polish bottles.
Bring a vintage touch to your bathroom cabinets or shelves.
How are you using your vintage fridge containers? I’d love to hear your ideas!
