Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling with The DC Ladies


Earlier this week, I shared easy tips on how we can all reduce, reuse, and recycle everyday items.

With the amount of Perrier I drink, reusing their glass bottle for a candle, cup, or vase has crossed my mind more times than I can count!

Hop on over to The DC Ladies for more tips and feel free to share all of the creative ways you use the three R’s.

Holiday DIY-ing

Christmastime is here…and I’ve been adding little touches around the (rents) house to get us all in the spirit.I scooped up some leftover tree branches from the lot when the kids and I helped my sister pick out her very first tree and I had every intention of saving these castaways. Just because they were at the bottom of the trunk doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to join in the holiday festivities too!Keep in mind I have grand plans like this all the time and the fact that I actually went through with this has made me feel beyond productive today…lol.

All I had to do was snip branches at various lengths, combine them at the base and make good use out of the drawer filled with leftover twist ties (you know…the ones from loaves of bread). Even remnant scraps that were too short or think have been put to good use since I’ve mixed them in with bowls full of pine cones and other decorations.

Maybe I’ll go back and get enough to the the banister and make a wreath?? Maybe pigs will fly too but I can dream!

Happy Holidays!

I brought home lots of cut off ends from the trees as well…and have an idea of how I’ll put those to good use too. But that will have to be saved for another day!
