Use it Again

When something is no longer useful for its original intention, take another look, because it might fill another need.

Tip 1:  Old game boards make great lap desks for paying bills when you’re watching television, or for the kids to color on during a long car trip.

Tip 2:   Refill plastic bottles about three quarters of the way with water and store them in your freezer.  They make great cold packs for picnics and tailgates as well as a contoured ice pack for sore knees or backs.

Tip 3:    Way too many golf tees?  Take a scrap of wood and screw small holes about every inch, half near the top of the board, half near the bottom in a zig zag formation.  Then tap your golf tees into place for a stylish tie or belt rack.

Tip 4:   Keep old candle stubs around for waxing sticky drawers and windows and for lighting fires in the fireplace without scorching your fingers.

Tip 5:  Winter tights that have passed their prime are perfect for filling with rice or lentils and putting at the base of a door to keep heat or cooled air inside!

These are just a few easy ways to re-use household items. I’m Mrs. Fixit and its just that simple!
