I just discovered a website called Altuse.com. (http://www.altuse.com)  and love the concept so thought I’d let you know they exist.  The idea is a simple one, take everyday items and create new uses for them to not only save you money but prevent items from going into landfill.  LOVE IT!

Save money and heal the earth at the same time, who wouldn’t want to do that?

Whether it’s using hairspray to remove ink stains, vodka to clean your eyeglasses, or coffee grounds to fertilize your garden, AltUse taps into the planet’s collective wisdom and if  you have an idea of your own you simply post it for the world to share.

Some of the posts you would have seen before  but its definitely worth a look and I’m going to try some of the ideas this weekend (I’ll let you know how I go).
