    There are things around everyone's home that usually just get tossed in the trash without thinking.  But if you're on a tight budget, you may want to rethink, reuse, repurpose and recycle those items that would easily go into the garbage into items you would have spent hard earned money to replace.  

    Here are the items:

    Plastic Produce Bags
    Mesh Produce Bags
    Produce Baskets
    Coffee Grounds
    Empty Tin Cans
    Cardboard Tubes 
    Desecant or Silica Packets
    Plastic Newspaper Sleeve
    Any Bottle with an Eyedropper
    Used Dryer Sheets

    I always keep all of these items and more to use in multple ways.  It keeps me from spending money on other disposable items.  

    You'll have to listen to the show to hear how I use these!

    Have fun and enJOY the journey!
