Humble old plastic milk jugs

I clean them out & then cut about 1/2 way down from the opening, opposite side of the handle & remove the front top & then I use it to put my nasty toilet bowl brush in.
The top where the lid was you can rest the handle of the toilet brush on.
Hope you all can understand this. I'll try to explain it again if not.

I used the 1/2 gallon milk jugs to make luminaries. Cut the top off at the base of the handle add sand for weight and to hold up the candle.

milk jug scoops

OK this is hard to explain, but I'll try. If you have kids, you can make scoops for them to toss balls back and forth. You would cut about 3/4 of the jug along with the bottom off. Only cut the side or 2 so that you can hold the handle and the top of the jug would be cut away. I hope this makes sense.

This thread is awesome! Love the luminary and toilet brush holder ideas. We use them for scoops for the winter icemelt. Some here use them as weights for their swimming pool covers.

uses for pierced earrings

I use earrings that I have lost the match for as tacks to hang things up on my bulletin board. They are more decorative than using the normal tacks.
When I see earrings at yard sales that don't have a match to them they are cheap to buy & that is what I use them for if I like how they look.
