Uses for Stocking Tops and PantyhoseCut off the elastic tops of your tights and stockings before throwing them away. I use the stocking tops for hair bands and scrunchies. I use the elastic from the waistband of tights to secure my rubbish bag around the bin and also to keep the cat litter bag in place.

 

Red shoes inside shower cap.

Tips for Using Shower CapsShower caps are inexpensive and very useful when packing luggage for putting your shoes inside. I also use a shower cap to cover my bicycle seat when it's raining and clear shower caps are handy to cover plates of food when dining al fresco!

Upcycled Letter Rack for Eyeglasses

Upcycled Letter Rack for EyeglassesI up-cycled my letter rack to keep my eyeglasses on. I think the rack cost me £2.99 on eBay. By the window, I have two wooden panels and I decided to place it here. I just needed one nail to hang it by but the bottom half wasn't stable enough so I used a marble-sized piece of white Sugru to keep it in place.

Goodie Bags as PresentsI have a frugal idea for giving gifts when you are on a tight budget. I have 6 nephews and nieces aged between 6 and 15 and, with money so tight, I didn't know what to get them all.

 

A Cupcake Base as a Drinks Cover

Cupcake Liner as a Drinks CoverUse a cupcake paper case to cover your drinks in summer. Rip a small hole in the middle for the straw. No flies on me! :D

 

A lemon shaped container for lemon juice.
