Years ago, when I changed out my old plastic shower curtain rings for nicer, metal ones, I kept the rings knowing they’d come in handy for something. Over the years, I’ve grabbed one here and there for different uses around the house with my favorite uses being these three – The hair elastic corraller, the quickie napkin ring, and the makeshift carabiner.
Each of these three things makes life a little easier and is a great use of something that would normally be thrown out. Next time you change out your rings (or if you see a pack at the dollar store) grab a few and put them to work!
p.s. I’m posting a few times each month over on the Bali Blinds Blog (say that three times fast!) Catch my first post here!
