In May, we asked readers to tell us about their best reuses for old things in their homes. The winning letter came from Lynn Martin. in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. She'll receive a gift bag of lavender-infused skin-care products from Aura Cacia -- a $150 value!
"I like to use old tissue boxes for storing plastic bags. The boxes are easy to keep on a shelf or in a drawer, stack nicely, and work just like dispensers. I save the bags for my next rummage sale and for recycling."
Look for more reader letters about creative reuses in the September issue of Body+Soul -- or, read our green organizing blog.
