Coffee scoops make great paint dispensers. Scoops from coffee cans, Kool Aid, Tang or your favorite dry powder drink mix makes for a good means to scoop paint from a can when you only need just a little bit of paint. Instead of pouring over the can's lip, scoop out what you need. Next time you have to mix some epoxy for something, glue tongue depressors or other suitable extension to the scoop handle.

Kitchen scoops can be useful in the garage.
