While cleaning up and putting away from dinner last night, I was thinking that I use some items in different ways that their original purpose. Such as... We use the clip clothes pins to keep everything closed like bread bags, cereal bags, chip bags and anything in the kitchen that needs to be keep fresh. Actually I was wishing that I had some of those large grips to put on the cat food bag! Also, we use canning jars for drinking glasses and to store leftovers in the fridge, so we can see what needs used. How about you? How do you use things in a different way than their original purpose?
