Before you throw it out or recycle, can it be used for something else?
Repurpose - to give a new purpose or use to (as per Merriam-Webster). Why not use your garbage for something else rather than needlessly adding it to a landfill? There are so many ways to repurpose items I couldn't possibly include them all. However, I think I put together a pretty nice assortment of possibilities!
Slide Show of Repurposing Possibilities
Links to all items in the slide show can be found below. I apologize if you have any problems with the links due to circumstances beyond my control. Links can also be found on my Pinterest Board Repurposing.

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
