Family living site Disney Family Fun shows us how to repurpose an empty milk jug into a lunch container by washing it out, drawing lines as shown in the photo, cutting it out, folding, and attaching a hook and loop closure. This container is perfectly sized for a sandwich and a few carrot sticks or grapes. If you don't want to use this for food it also makes a clever gift box for small items.
30 Mind-Blowing Ways To Upcycle Plastic Bottles At Home And The Office
Many reuses for plastic containers. My favorite: coffee containers (especially Maxwell House, because of the handle) to hold balls of yarn while I crochet.

Repurposing: Plastic Milk Cartons. Cut milk cartons so one fits into another. Use for anything you need quick sort and organize and stack. These are 1/2 gallon containers, one cut to 3 1/2 " tall and the other one to 4 1/2 " tall. To get straighten cut lines, put the carton into a drawer the height you want to mark the carton and use the drawer edge to hold the pen as you turn the carton.
