Repurpose and Reuse

Repurpose and Reuse

DRepurpose and Reuse

I love the Nest. It has such unique items for the home. Just recently, I went shopping for candles. My shopping items were packaged in such a beautiful Nest shopping bag. When I got home, I just couldn't discard that bag. Instead, I folded it up and placed it in my garage.

If you follow my blog, you would know that my planner is a 1917 Leuchttrum. I am a person who keeps planners from year to to year. I archive them when they are full. Thus, I have planners dating back to 1995. They are precious to me. I have things written down regarding milestones in my children's lives, such as when they lost their first tooth. Also, there are doodles that they drew in my planners when they were really tiny.

Because I value my planners, I take good care of them. Unfortunately, my current journal has pen marks on the outside cover. I've been looking for a cover and I even considered buying some expensive leather options. Then, I remembered my shopping bag. So instead, I repurposed and reused the shopping bag as my planner's cover. What I enjoy about this option is that it can be seasonal. For now my journal reflects the Christmas Season and I can easily change it up as the season changes.

I think it's cute. I love it. What have you reused and repurposed? Share below. Life is Good:)
