524 Ways to Reuse Things You’d Normally Throw Away
Although you probably wouldn’t, you could easily find out what a household has been using and getting rid of by a simple peek at their trash bins. More often than not we toss old coffee grounds, uneaten food products, un-recyclable bottles and cans – and the list goes on.
You’re probably thinking that your bins contain much of the same – but looking a bit farther into what exactly we’ve been chucking without a second thought, you might just realize that many of these items can be useful to you for more than scrap.
Things like old wine bottles and toilet paper rolls to old orange and lemons peels can go a long way. Even egg shells and used tea bags have multiple different uses, far past their original purpose.
If you’re creative or simply buying on a budget, many of these ways to reuse things instead of tossing them can be the perfect chance for you to save a bit of cash and try out a few new ways to do things.
