Save Those Used Tea Bags

Do not throw out your tea bags with the trash. Save them in a dish and then empty them around your garden plants and shrubs. Makes a good substitute for peat and will add plant goodness and save you cash.

I also like to feed my outdoor plants with coffee grounds from our morning coffee. Do let the grounds cool, then just sprinkle around the base of plants. You can also mix the grounds with potting soil when doing indoor plants. This seems to help make them bloom and color more, at least for me.

When the teabags are dried out, drop them into some parrafin they make great, cheap firelighters
