Spring Cleaning/Clearing – Go Green and Re-use!

Reuse tiny boxes for storing jewelry

When spring de-cluttering and purging, re-use what you already have in a new way!

Re-use  tiny cardboard boxes (you know, the ones you can’t bear to give away because they are so cute and maybe you’ll use them someday?), old ice cube trays, or empty egg cartons for storing jewelry or other small items.

Or, instead of putting a used plastic flower pot into the recycle bin, clean it up and use it as a pen and pencil holder. Checkbook boxes can be used as drawer dividers. And, if you have items you don’t want anymore but are usable, giving them to a charity of your choice helps support the charity, and will be useful for the next owners.

Look around your home or apartment to see what  you can use in a different way. Let me know some of the green choices you’ve made!
