Students handed out these notebooks at a recent event. What a creative idea! The front and back is made from a cereal box, and the paper is printed on the back side (scratch paper from assignments and handouts). Though the college print shop assembled these, they wouldn't be difficult to duplicate if you had access to binding equipment at a school or office.
I've made much of my son's baby food, but he was not a fan of green veggies unless they were very smooth; thus, over the course of several months, we acquired nearly 100 small plastic Gerber containers. I've been washing and re-using them to portion my own purees, but I had a box sitting in the basement full of the extras. I couldn't bear to throw them away and planned to post them on Freecycle--hey, you never know what others might deem useful! Well, one of the dorm directors called me last week and said she wanted to give a little gift to each of the 200 women in her hall. She thought it would be fun to make sugar scrubs and needed small containers to package them in. I was thrilled--what a great way to re-use these little tubs! It's times like these that I'm glad I'm somewhat of a packrat!
