Use an egg carton to store nearly empty condiments: I always feel like I should be repurposing empty egg cartons when I throw them out. Those compartments just seem so handy. Here's an idea that could prove useful. Remove the top half of the carton and use the bottom half. It should be the perfect width for the shelves on the door of your refrigerator. Use the carton to store condiments like ketchup, mustard, really any squeezable that is nearly empty nozzle-side down. It's a helpful way to collect the rest of the sauce from that bottle without having bottles sloshing around on the shelf.
