A few fun TIPS...

Well, I'm busy putting all my Christmas decorations away...can't believe how much stuff I have aquired over the last few years, and I had to take a break and blog a little! My sweet dad gave me this funny little book in my stocking called, Don't you dare throw it out! that is full of interesting ideas on re-using items! I guess it is a recycler's dream book...some of the idea's are bad, but I wanted to share some that I thought were helpful or ones that I might actually use!
So here they are....

1. Bottle caps - White plastic soda bottle tops can be used as teeny, tiny paint cups when you have a small job to tackle.

2. Prescription bottles - Use an empty bottle to make a travel sewing kit. Inside place a needle or two, pieces of thread of various colors, and a thimble.

3. Prescription bottles - Stuff a piece of sponge in an empty prescription bottle so that it sticks out of the top. Then, when you need to dampen envelopes, just moisten the sponge - no more dry, yucky tongue!

4. Broom Handle - Wrap an old t-shirt around the end of an old broom handle, and use it to get those cobwebs out of the corners of your rooms.

5.Old Business cards - Glue 2 business cards together so that the blank sides face out. Write your name and address on both sides, then laminate the cards with clear contact paper. Punch a hole in the card, attach it to your suitcase, and you have a luggage tag!

6. Christmas cards - Cut the front of the cards into smaller sizes and use them as gift tags!

Our grandma's have been re-cycling christmas cards for years... who know it was cool?I have actually started cutting up (from past year's) cards and will use them for gift tags next year!!! Some of those Christmas cards are beautiful and I love a way to use them again!

Well, do you have any good tips to share??? I want to know!

Happy New Year!
