GON Repurpose and Upcycle 10 everyday household items you can easily repurpose Wait…before you toss something out, be sure it can’t be reused or transformed into something that will make your life easier or a bit more organized. Here are some ideas: 1. Lunch meat containers: Throw these in the top rack of the dishwasher. Use the clean ones for leftover dishes, to pack lunches, or to hold craft items, like buttons or crayons. 2. Toilet paper cardboard: Coil extension cords and slip them into a toilet paper roll. This will keep them contained and un-tangled. 3. Chip clips: Put extra chip clips to work doing double duty on laundry. Use a chip clip to mark a stain on a tablecloth, sheet, blanket, or other big item when you see it. This way you’ll easily find and treat the stain once you’ve hauled the big item to the laundry room. 4. Egg cartons: The little dividers that kept the eggs separated are perfect for keeping other things separated too. Put them to work in craft or art projects to keep beads and other items sorted. 5. Tissue boxes: Stuff your extra plastic grocery bags in an empty tissue box. Pull out one at time as you need to grab one for garbage or another purpose. 6. Old calendars: The beautiful photos or art on a calendar should not go to waste when the year is done. Cut out the art and then cut it into smaller size pieces to use as gift tags. Add a hole with a hole punch and tie it on gifts. 7. Plastic tablecloth: The plastic table cloth you bought for a party or family reunion can be put to work as gift wrap. Wipe clean and dry. Fold and store. Use it to wrap a large or bulky gift. Place item in the middle, gather the plastic at the top, and tie with a piece of ribbon. 8. Empty cans: Cover empty cans with pretty decorative tape or shelf liner. Use them to hold pens, markers and pencils. 9. Extra pillowcase: Use extra or old pillowcases as clothing covers. Cut a small slit in the end of the pillowcase. Slip it over a garment you don’t want to get dusty. Put the hanger hook through the slit you cut and hang it back in the closet. 10. Orphan socks: Go to town on dust. Slip them over your dust mop and use them to swiftly clean the floors. Or slip them on your hands and get that dust. Throw them in the wash and reuse when cleaning.
