I keep things for a long time.
I drive my cars until they have well over 200,000 miles on them and my kids tease me because I’ve held onto my basic flip cell phone for so long. It’s just hard for me to get rid of things when there is still some good use left in them.
I guess I’m just weird that way.
Did you know you can get at least a week more from your lotion bottle by just cutting it in half to access the rest of the lotion? You can even get another wash or two from your shampoo and conditioner by shaking up a little water in the seemingly empty bottle. Your toothpaste will last at least another five days if you cut the tube in half when you don’t think you could squeeze out another drop. So many ways to get a little more for our money by just getting creative.
You can even get more life from your old worn out towels by freshening them up with a little homemade bias tape to make some cute washcloths.
For the rest of the “how to” go here.
Wow, I am so grateful to all of you who responded so positively to last week’s bias tape tutorial. You guys are the BEST. I can’t even begin to tell you how much it means to me that you appreciate what I do here so I also want to giveaway these washcloths to one of you. All you have to do to be entered into the giveaway is pin this week’s tutorial and leave a comment. I’ll announce the winner on Saturday, May 24th.
Stay tuned next week for more ways to use all that fun bias tape you’ve been making.
