About to toss an old dented muffin tin in the Goodwill box, we changed our minds. Maybe we won't be using it to bake any more muffins, but we can definitely give it a second life as a drawer organizer!
This shallow pan fits perfectly in the drawer next to our stove. We stash our little bags of bulk spices in the cups, along with an assortment of other kitchen odds and ends: toothpicks, bits of twine, twist-ties, wine corks, bottles of food coloring, and so on. This would also be a great way to organize loose-leaf teas!
Since the whole tray lifts up so easily, underneath we store a few appliance manuals, papers we don't want to lose, and a few take-out menus.
What other ways could we re-use this muffin tin?
