The lack of football on TV and the dreary weekend weather has forced me to do some early spring cleaning. Here are some great ideas to repurpose items you have around your house.
Closets and drawers: Look for old T-shirts or sweaters that can be used to create throw pillows. Concert T-shirts and even Christmas sweaters can be a new, fun way to decorate.
Kitchen: Use mismatched forks to create a fork curtain tieback. Bend the fork, drill a hole in the end of the fork and screw to the wall.
Freshen your newly organized kitchen with an orange candle. Cut the orange in half. Remove all but the white stem part in the middle -- this will become your wick. Fill with olive oil and light the wick. Be sure to use a large orange and maybe a small plate to add stability.
Bathroom: Use old pill bottles to hold cotton balls or Q-Tips for the next time you travel. They are also useful as a place to store ear buds in your gym bag.
After using the last disinfectant wipe, turn the container into a storage unit for your plastic grocery bags. It’s the perfect size to put under the bathroom sink or car seat.
Hot February deals:
According to AOL.Shopping.com ...
Workout clothes were flying off the shelves in early January, thanks to New Year’s resolutions. But now that we’re returning to our old ways, you can find most anything made of Spandex on sale.
February is the least traveled month of the year; look for good deals on luggage, hotels and airfare.
The departure of Cupid means good sales on fragrances and chocolates. Consider buying cards and decorations since the chocolate will spoil and you will be forced to eat it, which you wouldn’t want to do in your new yoga pants.
