You would be surprised at the amount of common things that you have in your home that could be used for other things. Those of you who are creative and innovative may have found ways to utilize objects normally used for something else. Learning to be innovative will help you to save some money and let you still do what you want without having to run out to the store.

Here is a list of some common things that can be used for things other than what they were intended for.

  1. Tissue Paper- Tissue paper can be used for something other than wrapping up a gift. If you happen to be a lover of loose tea but do not like the mess it leaves behind or have a tea ball in your home, tissue paper works wonders. All you need to have on hand is white tissue paper and a stapler. Simply take some of your white tissue paper and cut into a small square. Add your loose tea leaves to the center of the tissue paper and staple up the sides and top. Now you have tea bags. Enjoy!
  2. Toothpaste Anyone?- Everyone has a tube of toothpaste in their home. That is, unless you have run out. There are many extraordinary uses for toothpaste and I am sure that some of these uncommon uses are going to surprise you. Toothpaste can be used to relieve insect bites. Simply dab a little on the area where the bite is located. It will take away the insect itch. Another uncommon use for toothpaste is that it can spot clean your shoes and also clean up Kool Aid stains.
  3. Beer- Believe it or not beer has some extraordinary uses. One of them is to use it as a marinade. Another is that it soothes a tummy ache. It is also great for killing slugs in your garden. It can also help to make your grass stronger and more vibrant.

These are just a few common things that are normally found in a home. Remember their extraordinary uses for them when you need to make some improvisions in your home.
