This isn’t particularly innovative, but it’s an easy idea to make nice containers reusing food tins.
All you need is old tins (I used soup and plum tomato ones), spray paint in your choice of colour(s), and plastic lids. I bought the lids on the Internet and only paid £1 for a pack of 3. You can find them in most supermarkets, sometimes in the pet section.
I used mine to store tea and coffee, but they can obviously be used to keep whatever you want. You could also make a small cut on the lid and use it as a money box.
