20 Items To Save For Future Craft Projects + Project Links!

Hello Everyone!

If you've been wondering where I have been, I just have one word for you... school (insert sad face).

School started back up for me on Monday and is going to be a bit more work than what I had hoped. Well, lets be honest, when is school not about constantly working. Aside from that little fact, you may see blog posts (like this one) published at random times until I get my new school routine down. I promise, I will work out a better schedule!

With that update out of the way, today's blog post is one that will bring out your inner recycler!

You know that I'm all about reusing and repurposing items to not only save money, but to create more unique projects. Today I thought it would be fun to come up with list of items, that you should save for those future craft projects!

Almost all of these items, you have probably had around your house at some point and time. Also, most of them are really easy to save (or take little effort to clean/save) and can be used in a multitude of projects.

Speaking of projects, I included links beside each item so you could see how that item can be turned into an amazing craft! Some of the links lead to blog posts and some to Youtube videos.

So look at the list, check out the links, then start looking around your house for these items!
