5. Protect your tech with a bubble mailer
You may remember this inventive upcycling idea from our Reuse Design Challenge back in January. In case you missed it, here’s a refresher.
With only a few additional materials, creative DIY-lover Natalie of Creme de la Craft repurposed an old bubble mailer into a sleek and simple case for her beloved iPad. Use her step-by-step tutorial to give it a try on your favorite gadget, whether it’s a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
6. Help snack foods stay fresh
As entertaining as these shamelessly trendy mustache chip clips are, we still see no reason to spend hard-earned dollars (or purchase a new item) just to keep your favorite snack foods from going stale.
A binder clip or rubber band will do the same job, and they’re both free of waste and just plain free.
