Turn your trash into organisational treasure!

Candles, tuna cans, formula tins - it's all just rubbish, right? WRONG. Your recycling bin is a treasure trove of some seriously awesome decluttering treasure just waiting to be discovered. And best of all, it makes for a fun afternoon of crafting with the kids.

If you're big into candles and stashing them around your house, don't chuck out the jars just yet. Clean them out with hot water and turn them into holders for just about anything: pens, pencils, teaspoons, makeup brushes or craft supplies.

Have a taste for into tuna? Give those tins a good wash, peel off the labels and use them to store smaller office stationery like paperclips, pins and tacks.

Formula tins lurking around your recycling bin? Give the little ones a paint brush and let them have a go at decorating your new herb planters.


What's your favourite way to reuse and recycle?
