Extraordinary Uses For Ordinary ThingsWhile searching for interesting books to read about saving money, I came across Reader’s Digest Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things: 2,317 Ways to Save Money and Time in our local library’s database. It is fantastic! This book would make a great reference book. It is full of suggestions on how to use common household objects to do all sorts of things. For example it talks about the many uses of aluminum foil, cat litter, and even old coffee grounds, to name a few. Although it would take many lifetimes to try everything out that it suggests, it does offer some simple and affordable solutions that are very practical and useful. I highly recommend that you check out this book if you are interested in learning how to make the most of the common, everyday objects lying around your home. You can save a lot of money, be environmentally friendly, and have a lot of fun when you get creative with your stuff!

Here are some examples of suggestions you will find in this book:

*Use denture tablets to make your diamond ring or earrings sparkle again by dropping a denture tablet into a glass of water. Put in your ring or diamond earrings and let sit for a few minutes. Rinse them off and they will look like new!

*Use ice cube trays to organize your workbench. You can use them to store small screws, nuts, bolts, etc.

*Use a piece of well-chewed gum to fill a crack in a clay flowerpot or your pet’s food dish.

*If you run out of shaving gel, use olive oil. It will make it easier for the blade to glide over your skin and it acts as a natural moisturizer.
