11. Easily Pour Dressings

Instead of removing the foil from dressing or oil, poke holes in it, instead. That way you’ll never have dressing come rushing out of the bottle too quickly again. Just think of all the caloies you’ll save!

This is also a great tip for things like vegetable oil (shown in the picture), rubbing alcohol, and mineral oil.

12. Easily Dispensable Snacks

Placing cheerios, trail mix and more in empty coffee creamer bottles allows you to easily pour just the right amount out to keep your toddler entertained (and full). They’re not only great for in-house storage but at the park, in the pocket of your car, or on a boat, as it keeps the snacks from getting smushed.
