Have you ever watched television and saw the cutest container or gadget and thought ‘I have to have that.’ After you run out to puchase the item, you get back home and realize the item isn’t functional or you really don’t have a need for it.
So before you spend money on the latest and greatest, look around your home and see what can be re-purposed, re-cycle or re-used. Consider the following;
-Shoe boxes to hold small to medium items such as cords, office supplies, chargers.
-Shoe box lids can be used as dividers in drawers. For example, use smaller lids to separate your white socks from your colored socks.
-Have an old cookie pan that has seen better days? Why not use it as your pets place mat or perhaps to collect the dirt from shoes at the front door?
-Are you hoarding plastic coke bottles? The holidays are coming so why not use the bottles for homemade bath salts? Replace the label with your own. How neat is that?
I’d love to hear how you repurpose, recycle and reuse…
Until next time…
