I have many preferred plastic containers. One of them is the powdered coffee creamer bottles. They are just right for decorative yarn that gets used as trim on various denim projects.
A note here, glass jars are fine but I've broken a few and that's not a fun mess in the craft space.
All kinds of containers are fair game in this house. Bins that have long ago lost their lids can easily hold dolls who need hair and bags that are no longer needed contain tattered tents awaiting a new use.
Even the cardboard boxes the baby wipes came in are useful. These are great because they have handles and are completely disposable should the contents spring a leak.
All of these previously purposed containers are good to have ready. Mine sit waiting on the top shelf in my craft storage space. I don't save EVERY container that comes into my house.
