Old products were made better (in many cases), and the packaging had reusability. I sometimes wish that current vendors would follow suit, but it isn’t to be in this economy. Anyhow, during my husband’s recent deployment I took up a new hobby: going to antique stores. I needed a couple of organizational objects, but didn’t want to just get the same old thing everyone else has. I wanted to have something original, or different, that showed my style! Off I went. I found the following vintage items (that Hubs calls “old stuff”) that work great in my house, will have endless opportunities for reusability, and make me smile to look at them. In just about every case, I also saved money when I bought these in lieu of their more contemporary counter parts! I count it as conservation, organization, cleaning, and financial responsibility! Woo too!!!
I love the idea that I repurposed old items into something new. I also like that I know there are millions of other uses for each item. Each was inexpensive, and each makes me smile. I call that a win!
