Organize Your Life with Six Pack Containers!

In The Condo, we like our condiments, lots of condiments. Husband is one of those people who always have a full compliment of hot sauces on hand at home and even at work to fulfill all of his lava-eating needs. In fact, Husband’s appreciation of the hottest of hot sauces once resulted in the gift of an exclusive gift pack of Dave’s Insanity Sauces for our wedding.

Me? Well, I’m a wuss when it comes to ultra spicy hot food. However, I do have an affinity for mustard. Spicy brown, Dijon, and wasabi have at one time or another joined the bottles of hot sauce stored on the shelves of our refrigerator door.

Unfortunately, all of those small bottles on the refrigerator door shelves liked to tip over after I opened or closed the door. They often looked like a load of passed out people at some shipboard party gone horribly wrong. Especially the brands of hot sauce whose bottles look little people. Clearly, an intervention was in order.

Fortunately, the answer to tidying those wayward bottles was a recycling bin away. I used an empty paper six pack holder to hold and organize the condiments on my refrigerator door.

If you don’t like the look of the paper six pack carton as is, you can certainly pretty it up by decorating your six pack organizer using paint, paper, or fabric.



To corral and organize those little sample bottles of hot sauce and jelly that we also seem to accumulate, I reused an empty margarine tub to keep them from falling through the open space on my refrigerator door shelves.

An empty margarine tub also works well at keeping those few condiments packets we have from time to time from taking over the lunch meat/cheese drawer in the refrigerator.
Other Uses for Paper Six Pack Containers

I also use a paper six pack caddy to organize bottles of craft paint in my craft room. Some people use six pack carriers as picnic caddies. Others use paper six pack boxes to corral TV remote control clutter in their living rooms.

Do you have a new reuse for paper six pack containers?
