1. Dryer Lint - Believe it or not, the lint that collects in your dryer actually makes a powerful , long-burning fire starter. Just collect the lint, place it beneath a pile of logs & kindling in the fireplace, & you’ve got an instant flame. While all types of lint will do the trick, cotton, wool, & linen fabrics do not produce excess odor or smoke. You’ll never have to buy fire starter logs or fluid again! 2. Broken Plates - While you might not be able to eat off your broken china, (con't)
you can still display your rockin’ tableware in an artful way—by creating mosaics! Collect the broken pieces & adhere them on any flat surface, such as tabletop or a picture frame, using grout from any craft or hardware store as glue. You’ve just turned inevitable clumsiness into a mosaic!

I have small trash cans in the bathrooms, den, and living room. Instead of throwing away grocery plastic bags or taking them back to the store; I used them as trash can liners. They are just the right size for my small trash cans. Because the bags have handles make for quick throw away.
I like to keep a bowl nearby to throw vegetable scraps and any other trash while I'm cooking. Then I can throw all of my cooking waste away at one time. This saves me from having to make several trips to the trash bin and from having to frequently rewash my hands.
I hear people say they eat more than they want because they don't want to "waste" food or just throw it out. It's not good enough for the trash can but it's okay for your body? Treat yourself better than the trash can, and don't eat something just because you don't want to throw it away!
