The other day my husband found these candy canes in a home that he was working on. Somebody left them for trash. People leave alot of good stuff behind when they abandon a home. He brought them home and we checked to see if they worked.
They did to my delight and my husband’s because that day we were going shopping for lights to put in our yard. Just when I think I am frugal he bumps it up a notch!
He started to arrange them around around our front flower area, but we had a dilemma . The wire ran out of the bottom and so they could not be stuck into the ground. This meant he had to create something so they could be plugged in, and used.
My husband took our shishkabob sticks and taped them together with duck tape.
He put it inside the candy cane and now they will stand up without being broken.
They can also be able to be plugged in, and to my delight they looked great by our front porch.
The object of the story is to use what you have and just be creative.
That is the best way to save money in the long run. There are so many things that we throw away daily for trash, and they can be used time and time again.
Let me know how you save money on everyday items.
