I have used plastic To-Go containers, ZipLoc sandwich and other reusable containers as well as Kleenex boxes (I lined them with duct tape) but have been happiest with the clay as it helps trim hedgie nails.

That also sounds like a good idea and once again affordable! How thrifty everyone here is! Thanks for the suggestion!
