Making Something Out of Things That Some People Throw in the Trash

Category Leftovers

Save butter wrappers instead of throwing them away. Just toss them in a Ziploc bag (you keep for that purpose) in the refrigerator or freezer and use them to grease pans in the future.


Cut stale bread into pieces and store in the freezer for making croutons or bread pudding.

If you have uneaten bacon after breakfast (does that ever happen?) crumble or chop it into pieces and store it in the freezer. You can then use it for baked potato topping in the future.

Put stale chips or crackers in the oven on a low temperature (200F) for half an hour and they will regain their crispiness.

Put overripe bananas in the freezer to use in baking projects.

Do have an tips for items that are often destined for the trash?
