Reuse, reuse, reuse…

Reuse, reuse, reuse…

Unconventional uses for everyday thrown-away items.

Store more. Coffee creamer containers make great dry goods containers. Store small crackers or cookies, chocolate chips, sugar and more in them!

Clean with corks. Corks from wine bottles have a variety of decorative uses, but if you’re more practical, try this handy cleaning tip: Use them with scouring powder to remove grime from dishes and utensils.

Coil your cords. Toilet paper rolls make great cord-keepers. Simply coil or fold the cord and slip the cardboard tube over the coil. If it’s in a visible area, wrap the roll in gift wrap or fabric to match your décor.

Wipe your feet. Metal bottle caps can be turned into an outdoor boot/shoe scraper. Nail them to a board in rows of 8 to 12 with fluted edges pointing upward and say goodbye to muddy shoes.

Go container crazy. Plastic containers from sour cream, margarine, yogurt, etc. can be reused as leftover containers for dinner guests, disposable paint pots, or toddler bath toys.

Decode your cords. If you’re always tracing power cords to the source to figure out what’s what, write the appliance name on a plastic bread bag clip and place it on the cord near the power strip. No more confusion!
