new-use tuesdays: milk

Today is such a grey, rainy day in Toronto that it makes me want to lay in bed eating cookies with milk (am I the only adult who still does that?). So it’s only fitting to put this week’s new-use spotlight on milk. Beyond it’s cheer-up potential, you’d be surprised what this calcium-filled drink can do.

With some inspiration from Style at Home, here are four ways to make a small space entryway work:

new-use tuesdays: bar soap

I’m not a huge fan of bars of soap (I prefer the liquid form) but I get some on occasion as gifts, and, frankly, sometimes pretty packaging or a heavenly scent are just impossible to resist. So, if you’re in search of a useful application for that forgotten soap bar in the back of the medicine cabinet, I’ve got a few ideas.
