    Default Coffee Can Obsession

    Since we came back from Italy we’ve been drinking French Press Illy Classico. The cans are so damn nice I can’t bring myself to throw them away

    Here is what you do: You bake some homemade cookies, pack them in the cans, and ship them off to your friends.

    I will provide you with my address if it helps.

    I cannot throw away a coffee can. Ever. It’s become a problem.

    The cookie idea is pretty good.

    If I had a shop these would be perfect storage cans. Screw the lid to the bottom of a shelf and fill the can with stuff, label, and screw the can back on.

    Or I'm thinking might make an interesting chandelier. right now they are just pilling up on my deck

    ...piling p on my deck.

    I was going to say, another can and you'd need to remove that vent in the ceiling!

    This is a boat forum. Obviously you need to build a boat. Of course, since your's are smaller, you will need more than pictured.

    Saving coffee cans is the gateway to full on hoarding. Marie Kondo is heading your way.

    I save coffee cans, too.
    Also, other cans. Also plastic containers with lids.

    I keep a variety of these in a big box, to use as paint buckets, brush cleaning wells, epoxy mixers etc.

    I use re-purpose some of the plastic containers and use them in the house to store leftover food, etc.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I keep one illy can which i put my fresh coffee into. Hoarding cans in an apartment is symptomatic of attachment issues.

    less is more living an uncluttered life.

    You could use them to store weed but you'd have to get your Snoop Dog and Willy Nelson on

    I leave them outside for a couple of days....with the lid off
    The squirrels do a great job.
    Then I run them through the dishwasher.
