Our local sweet shop (the kind with the big plastic jars of sweets that they scoop out and put in bags for you) sells the empty 2-3kg sweet jars for 20p and I wash them and use them to to store bulk purchases like dry beans and rice I bought at the Asian stall at the market. They are perfect as you can see how much you have mleft.
This is awesome...and I have an old end table in the attic. Bogart has taken a liking to laying on a pillow on the floor next to my computer chair. I can him a pretty (manly) bed!I reuse grocery bags for picking up dog poo too.
I saw some reusing ideas the other day and one cool one was to use an old table as a dog bed:
I also save/reuse plastic bags to use as doggy poop bags or as liners for my small garbage cans. I rinse and reuse plastic bottles, plastic containers, jars, water bottles, sandwich baggies, aluminum foil and freezer bags.
