How to recycle wine bottles

I am not a big drinker of alcohol, but I love to have a nice glass of red or white wine (depending on what meal I am eating.) So I don’t normally have many empty bottles around. But there are occasions when I throw quite big parties and have guests (before the lockdown) and I end up with a lot of ’empties’.

Often, I will wash the bottles and use them as candle holders, but there are only so many candle holders you need and so much space you have to put them.

However, in the spirit of wanting to save the planet earth, I came up with this solution. I wash the bottles and then pour dry grains into them: rice, semolina, lentils, couscous, popcorn (yes, we will count popcorn as a dry grain). It works really well. The bottles look nice, they keep the contents clean and free from creepy-crawlies and I have done my bit for the environment.

How to save wardrobe space by using Can Ring-Pull

I like my wardrobe to feel nice and look nice. Nicely pressed trousers, beautiful tops for an evening out, special dresses for special occasions all organised and ready to be selected for the appropriate occasion.

My  wardrobe is small, and I have to confess to some laziness when it comes to organising it. But when I have times I go into super-drive mode and I want everything to be just right. Everything in its place and a place for everything.

Well, it was during one of those super-mode days that I found myself struggling to hang everything in my wardrobe. I was drinking my favourite drink ( a can of  Fanta) trying to work out where to hang my outfits. Ah, I was holding the answer in my hand. I took the ‘ring-pull’ from the Fanta can and slipped it over the hook and neck of a coat hangar. Then I took another coat hangar and put the hook into the spare hole of the ring-pull. Two hangars taking the space of one. Being a Fanta drinker I  was able to quickly gather enough ring-pulls to double-up every coat hangar. Problem solved.
