Recycling can bring not only satisfaction that you are saving a bit of the planet, but also some usefulness to your homestead. You can also save a few bucks by finding another purpose for your old shoe boxes. Bring together various types of cardboard boxes (they should be sealed on all parts), color them or cover them with your preferred crepe paper. Then, with the help of a cutter or knife, cut a window on each of the boxes, leaving one side uncut hinge way. Organize them by dimension to form a shelf. Cover them with two distinct types of fabric on the inside and outside. Then put some handles on the side that is narrower. You will find many useful purposes for these new storing units. Use your creativity to design your own interesting recycled cardboard shoe box!
