Old is New Again


I am enjoying my repurposing adventure so far this year. I love taking things and using them for something else.

On this Frugal Friday I’d like to share with you a portion of a recent e-newsletter from Real Simple. In an article titled9 Stain-Fighting New Uses they take common things around the house, such as lemon peel, baby powder and baby wipes, and show us how to use them in totally different ways.

Case in point. One of the money-saving ideas is pictured above: using a colander as a laundry aid. Here’s what they say about that:

Hand-launder delicates. A colander shields them from any residue in the sink that can harm the fabric, such as peroxide from toothpaste or caustic agents from cleansers.

Do they know me or what? You better believe I was interested in reading more. The article on Real Simple’s site is called “New Uses for Old Things” and you can find it here.

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.
