Objects that ignite our imagination

Before one is to dump an object, one should think of another use for such object. Let's make 2016 a year for reducing and reusing!

Objects that ignite our imagination

This photograph was shared by one of my friends on Facebook and I immediately exclaimed that it's an excellent idea on how to use an old toilet cup and its flusher. Why to spend on a brand new barbecue and drinks cooler when this toilet can be used just as well?
If one doesn't have one, one can always go to a landfill or where builders are in progress, revamping a house. In any city or town, there are shops that sell old toilets with their flusher as well as other used bathroom items, but before we are to spend a cent in one, we are to search in a landfill or when builders are restoring a house.
Once we've got our personal barbecue and drinks cooler, we are obviously to clean and to disinfect it with bleach and a good wash.
I wish I had a patio, a garden if only a small one or even an spacious balcony, because I'd place one one of those to have diners al fresco when it's warm, but unfortunately I do not.
Such an idea goes well with my own one of using and reusing objects rather than recycling. Recycling is good and no doubt about it, by using and reusing and reducing are even better.


- As I've already mentioned an old toilet and its flusher.
- Glass bottles that can make attractive and personalized lamps.
- Containers that come with coffee or ice cream may be used as cups or pencil holders. Whatever suits us best!
- Short glass containers can be used as drinking glasses and personalized with a pattern and paint.
Some time ago, I started to buy olives that come in short glass jars. I liked them and I thought they could be used as drinking glasses. People laugh and mock at me, but I always tell them if any of these modern design shops sold such drinking glasses, people would exclaim at them and they would pay a price that no matter how small the price, it is still a price, but I haven't paid anything but the olives that were in them.
Let's make 2016 a year for reusing and reducing!

Oh, it's so interesting to read your blog. I enjoy it very much.
An old toilet can become a barbecue and bear cooler! The idea is too wonderful, I'm your fan!
