You would be amazed at what you can do with old stuff laying around the house or sitting in the garage!
Why spend another dime on expensive store bought goods when just about everything in your house could be repurposed into something “new” that would have a productive use in your home.
Clean your house up, put your “junk” to good use, and help keep our landfills from getting out of control.
We all have stuff that no longer serves any purpose around the house, but we still have trouble getting rid of it. Either it’s “still OK”, or “might come in handy” or just holds some sentimental value to it. In extreme cases, this might lead to hoarding, but if you’re creative enough, you can solve the problem by repurposing, upcycling and reusing your old things.
Besides serving a purpose (again), repurposed items add this lovely touch of creativity and coziness to the space. Heck, most of the time, upcycled things become even cooler than they originally were.
In order to help you get started, we made a selection of 30 creative repurposing, upcycling and reuse ideas. Try to recognize your old things in the pictures and upcycle yourself!
