I got this email from a friend today about the multiple uses/right ways to use products. I never knew any of this!!
Greek yogurt containers are meant to be folded in half. This avoids having to find an ackward little spoon to fit in that tiny little crevice to grab the sides.
Ketchup cups can be flattened a bit to fit more ketchup.
Soda tabs can be used to hold your straw. Simply slide it over to the "spout" area and insert the straw.
Most aluminum foil boxes have press-in tabs that secure the roll in place, so you don’t have worry about it flying out every time you rip off a sheet. Look on the side of the box for the tab. It will say "Insert Here"
Chinese take out containers are actually are meant to unfold into a makeshift plate, which you can easily reassemble into a box for storing leftovers.
Your pots come with built-in spoon rests located at the very end of the handle. Insert the spoon handle into the pot handle.

Turn the tab around so that it acts as holder that can stop the straw from raising out of the can as the soda fizzes.
