Frugal Living Friday: Re-purposing Items

Welcome to Frugal Living Friday! Each week I will feature a tip that can help us stretch our budget and live more frugally! If you have a tip that you want shared on Frugal Living Friday, let me know and you could become a guest blogger for a day.

If you haven't noticed, re-purposing items is all the rage now. I have to laugh sometimes because I grew up doing things like this and back then it wasn't 'so cool.' It's great now to see so many people jump on the bandwagon of re-purposing! It's also awesome how all these creative ideas show how re-purposing items can be very fashionable.

I see ideas all over the internet, and I have posted about a few ideas myself here , here, and here on this blog. Here are a few ideas on re-purposing items I found recently.

This is a great idea from Amy. She shows us how to turn a door into a shelf! Beautiful.

Short on packaging materials? Look no further than your pantry. Jess shows how easy it is to turn a cereal box into a beautiful package.

Ashley had many, many great tutorials for re-purposing clothing. Here is a cute one. Make some girls pants from an old knit shirt.

I don't have a photo for this one....but Wendy over at The Shabby Nest had a great idea! Turning an old dresser drawer into a loved place for stuffed animals or quilt storage.

What good ideas do you have for re-purposing things?

I love repurposing, though I haven't done it in a while. I would have such a sense of satisfaction...
