My tip of the day is to not throw out your whole disposable tape dispenser when it is empty. Save the white plastic circle and use it in your bathrooms! (I read this in a huge tip book a long time ago)
Can you guess where this is going?
Place your bar of soap on top of it, to keep the soap from getting stuck to the shower tiles.
No need to ever buy a soap dish!
If you ever have a random object in your home that you are getting ready to throw away. Check this website first or google it, and see if it still has another hidden life left in it!
Also, there is Real Simple's New Uses For Old Things feature. Which has made for plenty of "Ah Ha!" moments. And Dollar Store Crafts website is a wonderful resource to find ideas for transforming common items found for almost nothing at Dollar stores around the Country! Check out their speckled eggs, made out of plastic eggs for kids! Wow.
