These Lovely Burbs

New Use for Cupcake Liners

Have you ever read Real Simple‘s “New Uses for Old Things” article? I love Real Simple and am often yearning for more real and simple strategies to daily living.

After we built a shared desk for our office, we decided to use some of our favorite mugs as pen holders. However, we like these mugs enough that I didn’t want them to get pen stains on the bottom in case we want to use them again for our morning coffee.

So I put cupcake liners at the bottom to prevent pen marks. A simple and inexpensive way to keep these cute mugs in tip top shape.

What are things you have created new uses for around your home out of old things?
