Creative uses for household items

Hi, this is Arati, a senior editor here at Food52. I have a question for all of you: What are all the ways in which you are repurposing or finding new uses for household items/objects (which could be market totes, storage items, furniture, old tins of paint, scraps, even compost!)? No idea is too small here! Thank you, and stay well!

Atari- icymi- real simple magazine has been running a column devoted to this concept for years, a decade at least.

Hi Arati! This past weekend, I fished a few egg cartons out of the recycling bin to make seed starting trays. And when I realized how good/therapeutic it felt to pat down some soil, I started cleaning out the house for anything and everything egg-carton-esque. I’ve turned a brownie pan into a seed starting tray. Cut up milk cartons. Gross-smelling ice cube trays. OK-smelling ice cube trays. All are now devoted to the growing of salad greens (which have started sprouting today, yay!)
