Thanks for all the ideas. I never thought of using them to store small items in a drawer. I have tons of beads I could use that for.

Those are some cool tips on how we can make use of our ice trays more. I especially love the crafting/hobbies uses. I think pieces of little candies and chocolates can also be placed there.
