Tuesday Tip - Don't throw that out!

Today we are interested in what you as our readers "re-purpose" - by this we mean things that would normally be thrown out, but that you find a second purpose for (and please, no "I save my dryer lint and spin into yarn to knit a sweater" I don't even believe it! :)

For example, I don't throw away the long, narrow plastic bags that the newspaper comes in. I roll them up (first I turn them inside out if the outside is dirty) and put them in my diaper bag. Then when we are out and about and I need to wrap up a stinky diaper to throw out, I pull out the newspaper bag and voilĂ !

So what do YOU re-purpose?
