    Give 6 Old Items New Life!

    Introducing structure to the chaos that tends to overtake your home will save you time and stress. You have items in your home right now that are not being used; these items can be repurposed into time- and money-saving projects. This will not only help you in the home, but will also allow you to use items to their full value.


    There are many seemingly useless items strewn about the house that end up in the trash can on a daily basis. However, these items can be reused in unique organization projects throughout the home. Candy tins, cardboard boxes, tissue boxes, and more can be repurposed as customizable storage bins! These containers allow you to save time and money, while organizing small items that accumulate throughout your house. Similarly, old vases and dish racks can be used to store larger items, such as accessories. Utilize these crafty tips, and stop throwing out money-saving items!

    Don’t trash your cardboard; instead use it to organize your drawers. Simply cover it with contact paper, and divide the drawer into four separate departments.

    Instead of storing a mass of plastic bags, fold and tuck them into an empty tissue box that allows you to pull them out one by one. Wrap in decorative paper.
