1. Store Christmas Ornaments
Protect your delicate Christmas ornaments by storing one in each compartment of an egg carton.
2. Organize Drawers
Empty egg cartons make perfect drawer organizers. Stick a couple in your desk and a couple more in your junk drawer to tame the clutter.
3. Wrap Food Gifts
Surprise someone with a dozen tasty treats. Mini cupcakes, muffins, cookies and candies all fit beautifully inside of an egg carton.
4. Wrap Small Gifts
Tuck a dozen small gifts into an egg carton. Wrap each one separately to make the fun last as long as possible.
5. Plant Seeds
Save up a bunch of egg cartons, and use them to start your seeds.

7. Use as Packing Material
Protect breakable items that you need to ship with empty egg cartons. They're light-weight, so they won't add much to your shipping charges, and they'll do a good job of padding the contents of your box.
8. Give Them to a FarmerPass your empties on to a friend or farmer who has chickens, so they can be filled with eggs once again.
Pull out the scissors, glue and paint, and use empty egg cartons in your next craft project:
