I use them for holding small screws and nails in my toolbox. I have one full
of sand from Daytona Beach, Fl. because I was there and wanted some to take
home with me. I have one full of sheep's wool that I collected from a hillside
in Scotland while I was visiting there. And the #1 best use for a used film
canister is to save up a bit of the ashes from each campfire our troop makes
so that they can be mixed in with the next one. I learned about this one
during my Scoutmaster Fundamentals Training. As the ashes are mixed into the
current fire we recount all the fires that have come before...
