It's that time again: What Can Davis save us?

We're wrapping up our clean and green theme with up-cycling.

If you're looking to get organized then no doubt you've looked at one of these.

Websites and catalogs sell all types of bins, boxes and baskets all to corral your clutter but pretty storage can cost a pretty penny!

$27 to keep your magazines managed?

Up to $50 to get your pantry perfected?

No. No and no.

How does free float your gravy boat?

Think I'm just talking trash?

I am!

Yes, listen to your inner Oscar!

It's time to kick re-cycling to the curb.

The newest trend in green living is up-cycling!

Turn your garbage into storage and go from this to a milk cartoon to a bird feeder.
Just do some cutting, gluing, and oh yeah pinning!

A peak on Pinterest and thanks to blogger "sew many ways" you have step by step instructions on how to turn your old cereal boxes into that $27 magazine holder!
Just add some dollar store contact paper to an old cereal and voila!

A junk drawer organizer from the stonybrookhouse and this mail sorter from poppinette?

All made from you guessed it, cereal box Trash!

You can have these handy dandy storage jars for free!

Enjoy your tasty peanut butter and then check out plumpudding's idea and use the jars to store anything and everything.

Print out the free labels and move over Martha! A new pantry princess is in town!

In fact there are literally dozens of ideas for peanut butter jars in the blogosphere. So

if you feel like your house is a mess?

Remember all you need is trash!
