Recycling is a good habit. It's good for the environment, but also practical. Instead of overspending on household gadgets, get creative with recycling:
Here are some ideas:
Tissue Paper/Newspaper: Use as fillers to shoes and bags. Fillers will help maintain shape to your bags, purses, and shoes.
Shoe Box Cardboard: Use them as dividers in your dresser drawers.
Wired Hangers: Clip your washed underwear, socks, ties, etc to dry on used wired hangers.
Colander: Used strainers make great laundry aids for drying delicates.
Buttons: Earing holders
