Learning to live as a family of three on a piddly teacher's salary is not without its challenges. Luckily, G and I are both pretty unconcerned with "stuff" and love to come up with ways to re-purpose old
You can find cheap shower curtain liners at a dollar store (for only a dollar!), but sometimes they're pretty inexpensive at your local discount store as well.
Great Use #1: Put it on your bed between the sheet and the mattress (cut it to whatever size works best for you) for a cheap way to waterproof things. Early on, we realized that co-sleeping with Gv sometimes meant leaky cloth diapers overnight. I couldn't believe how expensive waterproof mattress covers were, so I'm happy I thought of this way to save our nice mattress!
- Cover the floor with the shower curtain liner during arts and crafts projects - like this one!
- Use it to make clean-up a snap with helping little hands in the kitchen.
- Protect your sleeping bags during a camp-out.
- Keep batches of dirt dough under control.
There you go! Super-cheap, super-easy, and super-effective! Can you think of any other great uses I should add to the list? Did you try any of these yourself? If so, I'd love to hear about it (or see photos). Comment here or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
