Water Bottle Spout

b04

Today I am coming out of the closet.  I am baring my soul and confessing that I am not a recycler, re-user or re-purposer.  I really want to be.  I truly care about our environment, love nature and want to be frugal by recycling, re-using and re-purposing.  But for some reason I don’t do as much as I should in this area.  Maybe this will be my New Year’s Resolution for 2013.

 

So instead of just jumping in and taking on a huge project like installing solar panels, I know that I need to take baby steps.  Imagine my excitement when I saw this post on recycling a water bottle as a spout for your chocolate chips.  I felt energized!  I felt like I could do this!  Baby steps, Debbie, baby steps.

 

All I needed to was was to cut the top off of a water bottle.  Stick my chocolate chip bag through the hole.  Fold back the chip bag.

And then no matter what I did, I couldn’t get the chocolate chips to pour out! I tried squishing, pulling the bag as tight as possible, but…

 

Major.

 

Fail.

 

Sigh.

 

Now I am going to have to throw this water bottle in the trash.  The recycled trash can.

 

Sorry to report that This Pin Flopped!

  1. Good to know! I had pinned this one as well. Looks like I can delete it from my board :)

  2. I love this blog.

    Might work with a larger bottle top, like a vitaminwater bottle?

    • Sally..you are a sweetheart and a genius! A sweetheart for your kind comment and a genius to maybe use a vitamin water bottle. Watch for an update ’cause I am going to try that! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I thought it was just suppose to close the bag. then you take it all off when you want to use the chocolate chips from the bag.

    • Well, that’s a good thought. I thought it was really supposed to be used a spout. Someone had a great suggestion though and that was to try it with the bigger spouts like from a “Life Water” bottle. Great idea!
