If you buy spaghetti, linguine or other long pastas in bulk it can be difficult to find a good way to store the excess once you open the large package. Tall thin Pringles-brand potato chip cans excel at this use.
How To Life Guide recommends using the processed potato chip can to keep a lid on your excess pasta. Rinse out an empty can and allow it to dry. Be careful not to let water sit in the can -- the interior of the can has a thin aluminium coating which should repel water and allow you to quickly rinse out crumbs, but leaving water inside the can for more than a minute is inviting the water to find a leak and compromise the rest of the cardboard tube.
