It’s time for the Third Thursday Repurpose post. Each month I bring you a great idea for repurposing items that would have been headed to the trash or recycling bin. There are so many items in our homes that we can reuse and repurpose (instead of sending to the land fill)
As my Father-in-law says “if you use something twice, it costs half as much”>>>tweet this!
Recently we have gone on a few overnight trips and my son now has contact lens “paraphernalia” that has to travel with us. My daughter also has asthma meds. So everyone in the family is starting to have separate toiletry needs. I thought it would be perfect to repurpose pencil pouches as toiletry kits to keep each person’s stuff in one place. And the clear window makes it great to see who it belongs to (color coding is good idea too). I also thought a carabiner clip would be good to add on for when they go on an overnight or at camp without me (clip right onto their suitcase). And compared to the price of buying an actual toiletry or “dopp” kit. I think this is a thrifty alternative!
Would love to hear your thoughts on this one! Reply below!
Like this idea, then Pin it! Do you have an awesome repurposing or up-cycling idea? I would love to hear about it! Send me a picture and description to amissiontosave @hotmail .com and maybe your idea will be next month’s post (I’ll give you all the cred, promise)!
WOW! This is such a great idea! I love that it is so inexpensive.
