    You know the ones with three little compartments where you put premeasured powdered formula? We use whole milk now, and I'm going to toss the dispensers if I can't come up with another use. They seem too small to carry toddler snacks like cheerios or yogurt, right?

    I just tossed the one we used. I guess you could maybe use it as a small desk organizer or something like that for paper clips or push pins if you use them. That's really all I can think of!

    We still use them for small snacks like cherios and gold fish

    Instead of tossing them, how about finding your local freecycle and seeing if anyone else needs them? Check out freecycle.org. :)

    I use them for snacks. I also use them to freeze things like stew or soup in individual servings.

    I use mine for cheerios now. I bought some used from swap meets and garage sales. If you plan to sell any other baby stuff you can always include those for sale. People will pay $2 for name brand ones like Advent, even Tupperware makes one
    (I have one and they aren't cheap). There must be some other uses for them, hang onto them for awhile longer, you might find a good use :)

    I tried to but people were too cheap to even spend 50 cent on them :lol: I ended up donating them to Goodwill along with some other stuff that didn't sell.

    I used them for awhile to put paint in. It had 3 or 4 seperated compartments which was perfect. I'd put a little paint in each one, give the kids a paint brush and paper and let them have some fun. I've done the same thing with those weekly pill box organizers.

    That is such a fantastic idea!!! Wish I had thought of it before I sold mine! :lol:

    I sold mine at the MOM's sale, but otherwise I would have donated them too, I don't throw away anything that is in good enough shape to donate :)

    Thanks ladies! I've actually been trying to think of a good way for DD to finger paint and sounds like I just found the solution to 2 problems :)

    I didn't think something this small would really be sellable/donatable, but it's good to know I can do that with them too.
