Recycling old items at home gives you a threefold benefit. First, your clutter pile gets smaller because you’ve taken one item out of it. Second, doing a DIY project allows you to work with your hands, and if that is your thing, this activity will be as relaxing as meditation. Third, you get a new item out of the old one at almost zero cost.

This is a regular exercise I do at home whenever I’m hit with the purging bug. Our house has a bodega full of forgotten items that my husband wants to keep and one of these items is an old shoe rack, circa 1960s. It’s metal, rusted, and big enough to carry only four pairs of shoes so I took it out of the bodega to use as an umbrella rack. However, I soon realized this purpose didn’t fully appreciate the shoe rack’s potential. I decided to turn it into a phone station in 4 easy steps plus I didn't spend much!
