If you’re a DIY (do-it-yourself) addict and looking for some new ideas, you’ve come to the right spot! 5miles has a list of 5 unique ways to reuse items that you might not have thought of!

  1. First on our list are glass mason jars and old coffee canisters. Both make for great containers for your bulk pantry items, desk organizers or bathroom containers. There are so many different and unique ways that mason jars can be repurposed. Our top pick for repurposing mason jars is to use them as salad shakers. (See picture below).

  1. If you grew up in the 80s, it’s likely that you had a boombox or Walkman along with a collection of cassettes to go with them. Try taking the plastic cassette covers and using them as gift card boxes! (See picture below).
