30 Handy Hints for Frugal Homeowners
Some may think these handy hints are a bit extreme (or even bordering on hoarder territory), but if you’re a frugal homeowner, we bet you’ll appreciate these 30 clever, money-saving ideas for reusing common disposable household items.
Tin Can Glue Bottle Storage
Reuse a tin can for storing glue bottles upside down in your workshop. Then you won’t have to wait for the glue to slowly reach the top of the bottle in order to squeeze it out—it’ll be ready to go when you reach for it.
Milk Jug Scoop
Cut off the top of an empty gallon or half-gallon milk jug with sharp scissors. It helps to draw the cut line with a marker first. Clean up the cut to make sure there are no sharp or rough edges. Replace the jug cap and you have a handy (and pretty much free) scoop for pet food, potting soil, etc. Remove the cap and you can use the scoop as a funnel!
