Repurposing or Don't Throw That Out

Not everyone is crafty, but for those who are, repurposing offers a great way to save money while saving items that would probably otherwise go to the landfill.

If you sew you can learn how to use the old clothes you have in storage or in your closets to make new items, or even gifts.

Plastic items are one thing that we all need to recycle and repurpose as much as possible. Too much plastic already litters our landfills, our roadways and parks, our beaches, and even our oceans.

The current economy is making us all a little bit more frugal and repurposing items you already have is certainly a great way to save money.
