In celebration of Earth Day, Jamie wanted to share with you the best tips that didn’t make it into her newest book, Stop Throwing Money Away, to turn clutter to cash, trash to treasure and save the planet while you’re at it!
Grab the five items below you probably already own and try these clever ways to reuse them to get more organized today:
Cardboard Paper Towel Insert
For kid’s artwork. Need a way to protect that noodle and glitter creation for years to come? Roll it and insert it into the tube. Put your child’s name and the year on the outside so you can remember who created what and when.
An Egg Carton
As a jewelry organizer. No more tangled necklaces or missing earrings. Use the egg carton to store commonly worn jewelry. Earrings, bracelets and necklaces will each have an individual section plus you can use the lid as the place to store watches.
For socks. Do you have a pile of unmatched socks? Most people do! Instead of trying to match socks after they’re laundered keep them together through the laundering process by clipping matches together as soon as you take them off using a clothespin.
For photos. If you adhere a magnet onto the back of a CD case you can then stick a photo inside and hang the ‘frame’ on the side of a filing cabinet or the front of the fridge.
In the medicine cabinet. Adhere a magnet to the inside of the medicine cabinet door or under one of the shelves. Then you can stick tweezers or clippers to the magnet so they are within reach.
Hopefully Jamie has inspired you to tackle a project! She hopes you will join her at the Bite Size Living Cafe where all sorts of great discussions are taking place!
