Lenore loves to repurpose old, forgotten items and make them useful again. Here, old spice containers become small planters.

Type of can: Spice tinUse: Container for starting seeds Result: You'll check the dates on those ancient spices in your pantry and won't feel guilty dumping them out, because you'll have a nice new way to use them.By the way, if realizing that your herbs are older than your college-age child inspires you to clean out the pantry, here's some help for getting started.

Tins. Rather than pitching that old pepper tin, fill it with dirt and start some seeds growing on a sunny windowsill. Once the plants are a few inches high, you can transplant them to larger planters or to the ground outside.

Once the freezing nights hit, I am a potting machine. Everything from herbs to bulbs to cuttings and perennials gets potted and moved indoors. The problem is that I always run out of pots! Get creative with tins, cans and other recyclables for little green bursts of life indoors.

Why not? These tins are adorable planters, especially in a kitchen.

Happily, some companies still sell their teas and spices in charming little tins like these. They’re too cute to trash, but what do you do with them after their contents have been consumed? If you’re handy, you can turn them into candles, but it’s so much easier to turn them into tiny planters to grow herbs on your windowsill. They’ll look right at home in the kitchen, where they were probably hiding in the pantry all along.
