Kitchen Design: 20 Things to Never Throw Away from Your Kitchen

We live in a life where food waste is a major issue. We throw about a ton of good food and drinks that we could have eaten or used. Yes, of course, not all food can be eaten unfortunately. There will always be bones, peelings, egg shells or plastic bottles. But if we contemplate a little more, rather than throwing them away we can make the most out of them by recycling. It is not only best financially but also environmentally. Imagine how much money we could save and how we can better the world around us with these kitchen hacks we snagged for you! Let’s revisit the concept of our kitchen designs.  By making a few  changes, you can make the most out of these kitchen scraps!

1- Egg Cartons

If you’re in the habit of stockpiling your egg cartons without a good way to responsibly dispose of them, then you’re in luck. Egg cartons are up on our kitchen hacks list.

New kitchen design thinking can usher you to see that egg cartons are recyclable and their shape makes them perfect for cool reuse projects. You can use them to make lightweight packaging for fragile contents. For those craft-oriented people, you can use them as disposable paint pots. For storing and organizing, you can just paint and decorate them then store coins, golf balls or tiny accessories. Imagine how easy are they to sort, see and rearrange.

2- Used Coffee Grounds

 

Goffee Ground

Aside from getting your daily dose of stimulant and antioxidant from a cup of coffee, it serves as something that we can recycle to better the world around us.

Its acidic property is perfect for growing your plants and shooing away pests, snails, ants and even cats. Aside from that, coffee is a natural deodorizer. You can use it to remove nasty odors from your fridge or from your hands if you’ve been cooking garlic, onion and or other pungent foods.

Once a week, rethinking your kitchen design, mix some grounds on your conditioner for smoother and shinier hair with the added benefit of lovely highlights. Lastly, exfoliating with coffee grounds can stimulate blood flow, promoting healthier and tighter skin. It is proven that it is effective to remove cellulite. Just add vitamin E oil and then rub it on your skin with a loofah in gentle, circular motion. More add-ons for kitchen designs are on next page!

3- Celery and Lettuce Stumps
Regrowing

Next kitchen design idea is regrowing veggies. You can still make use of those celery and lettuce stumps that you’d normally throw out. Just rinse the stump off and then put it in a small bowl of warm water. Place the bowl in a near a sunny window then spray it with water generously. After a few weeks, it will sprout a whole new head! If you do this, you’ll save a little more since you may now take celery and lettuce out from your grocery shopping list.
