Tennis Cans for Christmas Storage

I love using tennis cans for storage! 
This morning I took some Ginger Cookies to 
tennis in one.
I'm obsessive, always finding ways to use my 
empty tennis cans. They are great for sorting 
small items in a clear unbreakable container
...and they are free!
 Here are just a few I used to store small
items in the Christmas bins.
stars, icicles, ribbon, garland,
 small ornaments, beads, wine stoppers,
I have dozens of these babies!
 I only use the red and green lidded ones. 
Obsessive or festive?
I prefer to use the term color-coded.

tip: If you are not a tennis player and don't know anyone that plays, you can get empty
cans from a tennis club near you. They toss them!
You can search: Tennis Cans in my blogs search box to find more posts on tennis cans.


  1. I love how you use your tennis cans. Great ideas!

  2. Great idea, and so resourceful. I would never think of that, since I'm not a tennis player. Our sons are though, I imagine they toss their empties away. Thanks for sharing, Vicki in Louisville KY

  3. Your tennis cans look pretty enough to be on display! What a great way to recycle and keep bows, breakables, etc safe at the same time.

  4. I love this idea! How useful and it keeps things so you can easily see them. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Goodness knows, I've had lots of empty tennis cans over the years, but I've never thought to do anything useful with them. This may be the ultimate recycling!
