Store plastic Easter eggs in empty egg cartons

Amazon: Porcelain Egg Dish Do you buy new plastic Easter eggs each year because you can't find the ones you bought last year?

Save a few cardboard egg cartons and store your plastic eggs in them. Not only will the cartons act as stands while you fill the eggs with candy (or a clever non-candy alternative), they make ideal storage boxes for the empty eggs so you can reuse them next year.
