This tip comes from my reader Catherine….
My most recent endeavor to save money has been re-purposing. Before tossing stuff in the trash (to just go sit in a landfill somewhere) I try to look at it and decide if it could be useful somewhere in my house. Baby wipe/flushable wipe containers are one of my favorites. There are so many different things around my house I can organize in them. My husband has been collecting wooden pallets from work and other businesses around town and doing all sorts of cool things with them. He has built storage crates and shelves for my stockpile, and is almost finished making wall mounted folding desks for our children. With re-purposing I not only feel thrifty, but also less wasteful.
What do you re-purpose?
