Re-purposing your old things is frugal. Keep money in your pocket by re-using your old things. Here are some ways to turn things you have around the house, or things you would normally throw out, into things with a new purpose.
Plastic Pants Hangers = Chip Clips
Don’t throw away those plastic hangers that come with your pants…turn them into chip clips! These can be tricky to get off: use a knife to “saw” off the ends.
Plastic Easter Eggs = Word Maker
Re-purpose your Easter Eggs for your little one’s to learn. Such a cute idea!

Binder Clips = Computer Wire Organizer/Holder
I found this on a site that isn’t in English, but this cool pic doesn’t need translation!
Baby Food Jars = Storage
Re-use your empty baby food jars into storage. You can go one step further and put a magnetic strip under a cabinet and add a magnet to baby food jar lids. Viola! Organize your little crafts, tools, or even use them for spices in the kitchen!
Old Pillowcases = Ceiling Fan Blade Cleaners
Do you dread cleaning dust because you have allergies? This smart idea keeps the sneezes to a minimum! Clean your ceiling fan blades with an old pillow case. Put the pillowcase over the blade and pull…all the dust and yucky stuff stays inside the pillowcase. You can choose to wash and re-use the pillowcase for cleaning or dispose of them.
