Double-Duty Idea's

Here are some idea's to help reduce, reuse, and recycle

---Plastic gallon milk jug- cut top with a utility knife just above the handle and use as a scoop for kitty litter, birdseed, etc.

---Plastic Tub- Get the largest-size container of yogurt, sour cream, or margarine.  When done with the tub, rinse and reuse it as a travel dish for pets or for craft-suppy storage.

---Magazines - Roll up a couple of these and stick on into each of you calf-or knee-high boots so the footwear will keep its shape.

---Old Shower Curtain- Stash one in your car's truck to line it when carting potentially messy paints, plants, beach gear, etc.

---Empty glass food jars - These make perfect see-through storage vessels for nails, screws, nuts, and bolts.  Craft supplies also.

---Foam Packing Peanuts - Put some in the bases of potted plants to help drainage.

---Empty Paper-Towel Roll-Flatten, and use to sheathe a knife kept in a drawer.

---Plastic Mesh Produce Bag - Turn it into a no-scratch scrubber for a gunky pot or pan.  Ball up the bag, scour, then throw the whole mess away.

---Used coffee grounds - Spread them over flower beds of acid-craving plants such as azaleas or rhododendrons.
