Helen and Dave had fun with creative new uses for old things:
- Cassette Tape Boxes: use for storing small, tangle-prone earbuds or ipod cables. If you use more than one, make sure to lable each box with what's inside and what tech toy it belongs to.
- Tennis balls: use to open tight-fitting jar lids (especially those jars with sticky things inside -- like honey) Just cut the tennis ball in half with an exacto knife, place the inside rubbery part onto the lid, and turn to open.
- Rubberbands: can use rubber bands for same purpose as the above "Tennis Ball Tip." Just wrap rubber band around the lid and turn to open.
- Zippered bed linen bag: use to keep craft project pieces together in one place. Perfect for knitting projects, scrap-booking projects and sewing projects.
- Paper Towel Tubes: use the empty tube to keep scarves wrinkle free and organized. Wrap the scarves around the tube and secure each end with fabric ponytail holders.
- Magnetic Paperclip Dispenser: Use to keep bobby pins from ending up at the bottom of your bathroom drawer.
- Toothpicks: make it easier to find the beginning of the tape roll by sticking a toothpick under the spot where the tape roll starts.
