Mugs as utensil holder or pen holder – most homes have an oversupply of mugs even though the homeowners do not really buy them on a regular basis. These mugs are popular as gifts for all occasions. Just think about the previous holidays. How many mugs did you get as gifts? You can re-purpose these mugs as utensil holders or pen holders. Pick out mugs with complementary designs and line them up on your study or work table. These mugs can hold your pens, markers, and other office supplies. Or, you can keep these mugs in your kitchen and use them to hold your utensils or cooking implements like ladles, turners, spatulas, and beaters.

Table napkins as curtains – you might have table napkins that you do not want to use anymore. Turn them into curtains by sewing their edges together much like you would with quilting squares. Don’t forget to take measurements so your finished product will be just the right size for your windows.
