    Wonderful, fun and creative!

    Reuse everyday items A-Z in fun and creative ways. Don't throw anything away until you have consulted this great reference for new uses for old things. Example: corks can be used to cap an X-acto knife, hold pairs of earrings, sliced to fit on bottom of furniture legs to protect floors or glued to cupboard doors to silence them when shut.

    Excellent resource

    Excellent resource for ways to reuse things you already have instead of spending money on new things.
