More with Less: Clever Repurposing

Published Thursday, July 26, 2012 8:08 PM

Forget "America's Got Talent." "America's Got Stuff" could be the title of a reality-TV show starring the American people. We buy, store, sort and toss oodles of goods, mountains of things. Even avowed minimalists probably have at least one drawer of useless doodads hidden away somewhere.

Do you have any neglected items cluttering up your home? Rather than tossing, take stock to see if they can be given new life. Clever upcycling,  that is converting useless items into a new use or product, makes smart environmental sense. Plus it saves money. Why empty your wallet and clutter up a landfill by tossing items when they can be put to good use?

Curiously Awesome Repurposing

Would you ever think you could enjoy summer grilling on a barbeque made out of a discarded Altoids tin? Talk about curiously awesome! This clever repurposing idea comes from,  an unparalled resource of upcycling projects. Click here  for more great ideas.

We also like the "aha!" ideas from In New Uses for Old Things Hall of Fame, you'll find creative ideas such as turning relics such as cassette tape cases into ear bud holders and terrific repurposing notions like using a colander as a party ice-bucket.

Reuse, reduce, recycle: your wallet and the planet will thank you.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She

put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit

crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go

back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I find this piece very compelling. It's tnugrailar shape works for me formally, calling to mind the trinity represented in the church, yet the shape of the leaf is paganistic, like the Birth of Venus. It makes me very melancholy and nostalgic, as if it's reminding me of a time when religious idols and sexual attraction weren't divorced (something we now are forced to find in pop-idols). I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the face in the window. But I do know that it's necessary. It's what upsets the gentleness of the image and keeps me enraptured. Nice.

I have got 1 idea for your blog site. It seems like at this time there are a number of cascading stylesheet issues when opening a selection of web pages within google chrome as well as internet explorer. It is working alright in internet explorer. Perhaps you can double check that.  []click here[/url] I would read everything first and make your own decision base on what works best for you. If you're gonna use it a lot, it's worth it, but if not, it's not. That's my advice...I've bought and cancel after my research.
