Repurposing

Last night at book club, I mentioned that I have a goal this summer to repurpose my twin-size flannel sheets into pajamas. I think I will have enough for pants, if not a top. While reusing sheets fits in with my stated goals of being less wasteful and more thrifty, I had no idea I could devise ways to make use of my most junkiest of junk: floppy disks. I have tons, left over from years of running to the computer labs on campus to finish papers, projects, programs, publications (I wasn't really trying to alliterate, it just happened there). Now they sit in a little rolling plastic drawer thingy, taking up an entire drawer.

Fortunately, I can turn them into pen holders and bags.
