Refurbished/repurposed jewelry boxes
I recently repurposed two old jewelry boxes as organizers and I am so pleased with the outcome that I am thinking of stopping by Goodwill to look for some more. These first two repurposed jewelry boxes cost me nothing as both were dumpster rescues that I refurbished with left-over craft paints and gems.
Apparently we are not alone in our project because I found lots of other examples on the web...
How I became Considering frugal
Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffers from each day and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, I have decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family can do to change our planet. I did not consult any other parties before I launched this idea, so that should be interesting to see. Thankfully my husband and daughter are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I am normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I will be looking for ways that I can reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
While it is true that I am working on a PHD in Psychology and very smart and frugal, I am not a medical doctor, criminal, personal or accident lawyer. I do not sell insurance nor am I an accountant or mortgage advisor. While some of my posts may offer good ideas on home and business solutions, I am not personally responsible nor is Considering frugal for any advice, ideas, recipes or menu plans that you decide to use.
