My mom, well before repurposing was a thing, was a saver of everything and a waster of nothing. She wasn’t a hoarder; she just couldn’t stand to be wasteful. In our house, those little plastic baskets that berries came in turned into kitchen sink sponge holders; hole-ridden T-shirts became cleaning rags; and used wrapping paper was given new life as, well, next Christmas’s wrapping paper.
Mom would love this clever product that Julie found: a small woven bag meant to hold those little slivers of soap that, alone, are just too small to do their job. Put a few tiny pieces together in this bag, though, and suddenly you have enough for a good soaping. Even better, the bag acts as an exfoliator.
