As Rumpelstiltskin turned straw into gold, many of our old things can be turned into something with another use. We can reuse them, give them as new gifts, or sell them as wonderful treasures--turning something old into something new.
So many things we own can be reused when they break or become obsolete. We can opt not to throw them in the landfill by finding another use for them. Besides, it can be fun to come up with ideas on how to reuse something. Send me your ideas!
Every month we will highlight an item here with several reuse options.
Rumpelstiltskin Riches for March - Computer Diskettes
If you are like me, you still have old computer diskettes hanging around. Here are a few things you can do to reuse them:
- Make a birdfeeder from floppy disks. See instructables on the how-to.
- Make a pencil caddy from diskettes. See espritcabane for the instructions.
- Make earrings out of diskette parts. See boingboing for more information.
You can also recycle your diskettes by sending them to greendisk.
