Get crafty with recycled and repurposed items around the house

Wondering what to do with those items in your house that you don't know how to or where to recycle, and don't want to just throw them away? Why not get crafty and rework those items by making them into handy things you'd actually use?

I found these great sites that are dedicated to making useful items by recycling and repurposing what most people would just throw away.

-Recycle This features ways to use over 600 items and has over 8000 suggestions of ways to reuse, repurpose or recycle things that would otherwise go in the trash. They’ve covered items from around the home, office and garden, things for particularly hobbies or sports, and random bits of technology that have broken or are just out of date.
