Excellent spools for rolls of tape

Submitted by John Calvert

Pringles crisp cans make excellent spools for rolls of tape (e.g. duct tape, etc.) Just trim off the rolled part at the top and the tape fits exactly on and will not fall off the metal rim at the bottom.

Tried this and it works great, also works for large rolls of packing tape, keeps them in a nice neat stack, easy to find, instead of rummuaging thru drawers looking for a roll.
Another tip Comments By: Heh Heh on 2011-04-11
I'm from Canada and I just LOVE to hear British words like "crisps"...which of course we call potato chips. I'm a big britcom fan!

Anyways, I'm not sure the crisp cans are the same as in Canada, because I don't understand what you mean by the "rolled part at the top".

But I have another tip, which is to use the cans as a piggy bank to put your change in. I use one to store pennies, then when I have lots, I roll them and exchange them for dollars, or deposit in the bank.
