Free Printable Folger’s Coffee Can Labels

I have over 80 Folgers Coffee containers. They are so useful. Most I use for feeding the animals (horses, goats chickens, dogs). I have one in the kitchen for compost one for gathering eggs. I have 20 full of hickory nuts from a tree in the yard. They also work great for pantry items (rice, brans, nuts, sugar), toys and school supplies. So I started making labels. I’m sharing them below.

Print and Adhere Labels

Printable labels, easy to peel and apply. (Download below.) All you need is a Folgers 84.5-ounce or 39-ounce canister, a printer, paper, scissors, and adhesive. You can use plain paper or 8.5×11 adhesive labels.

Holiday Labels

Here is a great frugal gift idea:   Folgers plastic resealable coffee containers are durable and have a handy indent for a handle. Its a super idea for gift giving. Fill with Bird seed, crayons, cookies, trail mix, popcorn, candy, baked goods, candy, small toys, craft items, etc


Getting Rid of the Coffee Smell

Wash the plastic container well. Place 1/4 cup of baking soda inside and allow sit overnight. Wash and rinse. The smell should be gone.

    That’s a great idea! We currently use these containers for compost and when my girls are sick. Once, my oldest had a concussion. We took a coffee canister along for the ride to the hospital and the nurses thought it was ingenious – being that these can be washed in the dishwasher and they have a lid to contain odor.

    Thanks for the great idea!!! :)

    Studying along with fun is the motto in the camp and a one-on-one instruction structure is followed
    through the camp. The schools listed below offer degrees in Marine Biology or very closely related
    fields, such as Biological Oceanography or Marine Science.
    I’ve seen some amazing setups by lifelong fans and what better
    way to start to indoctrinate kids to love our teams
    than to give them fantastic lifelong memories of tailgating to home games.
