New ideas week

By Guest Author On June 16, 2011 Under Improve Your Life, Self Help Tips, Setting Goals

hullo blogging world! As I return to you from an extended break, I come with fresh ideas for used things. Occasionally I start to get unsatisfied in my home . I start trying to move furniture around or just do something new and fresh. Neither my husband or my bank account like this phase . In efforts to combat against it, I bring you new uses for used things. This week we will go through several spaces and uses for things that you probably already have lying around someplace. These thoughts are made by Real Simple Solutions. Let’s start in everybody’s (or maybe just mine) favorite room- the kitchen! We eat, drink, socialize and chill inside this room. Here are a couple thoughts :

Wine bottle/cork


  • Use a wine bottle for bookends. The can be empty or full, but they will for sure be stylish and having your guests impressed.
  • Use a cork to store stud earrings in to avoid losing them in the bottomless pit that is your suitcase (or maybe that’s just mine…)
  • Fill an empty wine bottles with special sauce, dressing or cocktail mix as a favor to your guests!

Uncooked Spaghetti

  • Uncooked spaghetti can keep plastic/cling wrap from messing up the frosting on a cake. Simply push a piece into the top of the cake. 
  • Use a piece of spaghetti as a book mark in your cookbook! Mark all your favorites so you can flip them open quickly!
  • For hors d’oeuvres. Put some cherry tomatoes, cheese, basil…mmmm. Crowd pleaser for certain


  • as a bug tent to keep flies from burgers, etc outside. 
  • wash your delicates in them! 

I hope these ideas help give you a fresh pep in your step and home. Also try these houses on  College Station Houses  or Round Rock Real Estate !  Love, Jenn, the Cortiers Daily Blogger
