Frugal Tip of the Day

I love finding ways to reuse or repurpose things so there is less waste and more money for things that my family needs. I also like to try new ways to keep things organized. Here is one I tried of today.

When you have two little ones in diapers, you use a lot of baby wipes. And those plastic containers add up fast. I used one to store crayons that had their box destroyed by years of abuse, but that still leaves me with about 15 more to use, so today I repurposed one to hold my yarn so I can keep it neat and all in one place...and my little ones can't run off with it as easily! I just ran the yarn up through the slit in the top and presto! A handy yarn dispenser!

Anyone else have any tips on repurposing or recycling you’d like to share? :D

I really like this idea! It is so childproof, and that really helps when it comes to yarn!
