More Aha Uses!

Posted: September 28th, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

This might become a monthly thing because after my decor items - transformed post — I found myself noticing MANY things in my house to be used for one thing, but I was using them for other purposes. Do you find yourself doing that a lot?

Here are my next two new favorites:

Household item: Vase and Votive holder
Aha! Use: Store extra socks and change that come from the dryer
(Who uses all their vases they receieved from their wedding anyways?!)

Household Item: Picture Frame

Aha! Use: Monthly calendar that I used a blank scrapbooking calendar sheet from Hobby Lobby and backed it with some fun scrapbooking paper and hung by a string. Now I use my chalk inks to write and draw away!

Visitor idea:
This one is from Lindsay: I love to use decorative jars and bowls that are supposed to be for jam or sugar or creamer or something…to store things in in the bathroom. And old or antique glass ash trays are for catching stray jewelry by sinks and bedsides around here! (Cleaned of course!)”  Great idea Lindsay!

Any other favorite AHA! uses that you would like to share?

    I reuse jars like a mad woman!
    I clean out sauce jars or fruit jars or mayo jars and I reuse them to store batteries or small packets of seasonings or croutons or anthing else that will fit!
