Frugal Friday: Re-purposing Items

I am a bit of a pack rat, so I often save containers and boxes and things thinking I will "re-purpose" them later. My favorite re-purposed item is a baby wipes box turned into a coupon organizer. Voila!

Got any great ideas for "re-purposed" items? Please share a comment! Get more Frugal Friday tips at Life As MOM.

I bought a cute heart-shaped picnic basket at a garage sale a few years ago. I use it for my magazines! It fits nicely under one of my end tables, but also looks nice if I leave it out.

This is a really cute idea. The only remotely re-purposing thing I've done lately is invading my crafts cabinet and sewing together teeny tiny fabric scraps to make crazy quilt squares that I'm sewing together into a larger quilt. It feels good to think you're making something out of nothing :) Happy couponing!
