    Is it just me, or does ephofma's post make you feel hungry too?

    I'm on the verge of using up a bottle of hairspray, but I have to keep adding to the amount left in it, or the squirt button won't work. But soon I'll be able to pour the rest of it into another bottle of hairspray.

    Made Fridge Magnets:
    Cut up some magnetic pieces for fridge magnets (those big, magnetic pieces that utility companies give out). Stuck a nice sticker on them first, then cut around the sticker.
    Could also place some buttons or odds & ends of game pieces on these and cut around; use double-faced tape to stick together.
    Found an old letter opener (had a wooden mouse with emerald eyes on the top of it); removed the mouse, made another fridge magnet with it.

    I also re-arranged all my fridge magnets, and got rid of the old curly-edged papers and memos that needed to be tossed away already!

    When I open my fridge door now, my condiments rattle, because there's only a few there now, and they're all edible! It's so easy to reach in and take one out now too, since they're not all packed in there anymore.

    Last night I used up the facial cleanser that I keep in the shower. I will search all through my many stashes of supplies before I buy a new one - Know there are some facial bars of soap somewhere!!

    Tonight we will be using up a lot of beggies from Christmas for a very interesting salad.

    Combined the rest of the smoked salmon poke that DH got for me for Christmas breakfast with cream cheese for a terrific spread for my English muffin this morning!! There is just enough left for tomorrow too!!

    We were gifted many many small packages of dryer sheets. I am saving the used dryer sheets for two reasons:
    *to stuff my little crocheted snowmen ornaments for next Christmas
    *to reuse with liquid softener

    Must also tell you how great my skin looks and feels since I have been using olive oil on it every night!! If you missed the posts on this - try it!!

    I'm slowly working my way through Christmas leftovers. I have also been using a small jar of night cream that has dried out as lip balm.

    I *could* have used up a bottle of hair conditioner, but instead, I added some water to the bottle to thin it out, so I've probably got a good 4-5 uses left in it now.
